Taipei, Oct. 28 (CNA) A Chinese businessman was deported from Taiwan on Monday night after ripping down messages on a Lennon Wall in Taichung and being arrested for vandalism, according to the National Immigration Agency (NIA).

After collecting evidence, Taichung police turned the 35-year-old Chinese man surnamed Hu over to prosecutors for tearing down posters and messages supporting Hong Kong protests from a Lennon Wall in an underground passageway on Mei-tsun Rd. in Taichung on Sunday.

The Taichung District Prosecutors Office said Sunday it granted Hu a deferred prosecution, and ordered him to donate NT$30,000 (US$999) to charity and receive instruction on the rule of law before being allowed to leave Taiwan.

It also said Hu would be barred from leaving the country and required to report to the prosecutors office every day before the case ended, according to prosecutors.    [FULL  STORY]
