The Control Yuan wrapped up its investigation into the prison bribery scandal involving former Eastern Multimedia Group (EMG, 東森集團) chairman Gary Wang (王令麟) on Thursday, issuing a statement saying that it would impeach eight officials in the nation’s correctional facilities, including four high-ranking officials who had served as prison wardens.

Among those impeached were former Green Island Prison warden Su Ching-chun (蘇清俊), former Yilan Prison warden Wu Tsai-wei (吳載威), former Taichung Prison warden Chao Chun-chi (趙崇智) and former Taipei Prison warden Fang Tzu-chieh (方子傑).

Four other Taipei Prison officials were also impeached — former administrative secretary Ko Shu-yu (柯書宇), former staff officer Tsu Hsing-hua (祖興華), former section supervisor Chou Ping-jung (周秉榮) and former staff manager Chang Wen-fa (張文發).

When serving his second prison term in 2013 for fraud and other criminal convictions, Wang paid bribes and gave gifts to prison officials via his personal secretary Hu Hsiao-ching (胡曉菁).     [FULL  STORY]
