TAIPEI, Taiwan — A former Turkish diplomat who fled Taiwan after being accused of sexual harassment has been placed on a wanted list by prosecutors in Taipei.

Taipei District Prosecutors Office listed former Deputy Head of the Turkish Trade Office in Taipei (TTOT) Halil Ibrahim Dokuyucu as wanted person Saturday. Dokuyucu was charged with sexual harassment after a local woman accused the former envoy of groping her in a Taipei bar in July.

Dokuyucu could face up to two years in prison if found guilty.

Prosecutors said the envoy would remain on the wanted list for 12 years and six months. This is reportedly the first time a foreign diplomat has been placed on a wanted list in Taiwan.

Repeated requests had been made for the former envoy to appear for questioning, but he has remained a no-show, prosecutors said.    [FULL  STORY]
