I am in the process of applying for the ROC citizenship but I am stuck here because
my country doesn’t issue a certificate or any other written document as a proof that I have renounced my original citizenship, according to the immigration laws of my country, if I become a citizen of a foreign country I automatically loose my original citizenship. In this case how can I prove this to the Taiwanese government without a written document? Thanks in advance.

I wonder (just thinking out loud) whether they would know any better if the applicant just...forged their own letter, pretending to be the foreign government, and saying that such-and-such a person really had renounced their citizenship...?

I mean, their security would be aimed at preventing people from falsely claiming that nationality, not falsely denying it--right?

Unless you are the first one from your nation to apply for ROC nationality, wouldnt they already know what your nation provides in the way of paperwork or that it doesnt?

No only fools would try that. After you have the document you have to get it notarized by your own government first. The TECO office then contacts the person who signed the form to verify that they are first an authorized person who can sign and secondly tp prevent fraud. Then the TECO office notarizes the document as being valid. Immigration in Australia did this and also they translated it for free into traditional Mandarin ( considered an essential document ) as well.

Submitting fraudulent documents is clearly a stupid idea. It would not only prevent you from obtaining citizenship but you would end up in jail for forgery before being deported.
It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments

Thanks for the input guys, I haven't done anything illegal in the past and never will. Anyway I got some kind of good news from the MOFA in my country today. It looks like the law regarding dual citizenship had been revised back in 2003. that means I may be able to renounce my original nationality. I will report back when the things progress, Thanks again for your replies. :)
