A group of 19 Taiwanese on a “tour” were repatriated from Malaysia on Thursday, as local police served them with arrest warrants upon their arrival at Kaohsiung Siaogang Airport, on charges of engaging in defrauding operations with a criminal syndicate.
Two of the accused, surnamed Hung (洪) and Lai (賴), were detained in Malaysia because they reportedly did not cooperate with police investigations.
According to Malaysian authorities, if the two detainees are found guilty, they are to be flogged with lashes to their bare buttocks, in accordance with local law. [FULL STORY]
