TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Hsu Ching-hsiang, the father-in-law of popular
entertainer Dee Hsu, better known as Little S, changed his plea to guilty in his Taiwan High Court trial for insider trading linked to the Top Pot Bakery.
The Taipei District Court sentenced him to two years in prison last August but found his son, Mike Hsu, the husband of Little S, not guilty. Following appeals, the Taiwan High Court held its first hearing in the case on Wednesday.
The suspicion of insider trading began in 2013 after Top Pot, which had relied on a reputation for pure and healthy products, was found to have used artificial flavorings in its bread. [FULL STORY]
