Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Chen Chao-ming (陳超明), who had been detained on suspicion of corruption, was released on NT$5 million (US$174,410) bail on Friday, but is under home detention and barred from leaving the country.

When leaving the Taipei District Court after posting bail, Chen said that he was innocent and not involved in corruption.

He would offer his side of the story at a news conference, he said.

Chen, Sufin Siluko of the KMT, Su Chen-ching, (蘇震清) of the Democratic Progressive Party, and former New Power Party legislator Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明) were indicted in September for alleged breaches of the Anti-Corruption Act (貪污治罪條例) in a case related to ownership of the Pacific SOGO Department store chain.    [FULL  STORY]
