Taipei, Aug. 18 (CNA) A Taiwanese engineer and seven others were charged last week for operating an online gambling website targeting Vietnamese migrant workers in Taiwan, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said at a press conference on Tuesday.

The 49-year old engineer, surnamed Wu, allegedly set up a computer shop in March at his residence in Zhubei City, Hsinchu County, using it as a front for the online gambling operation, said

An investigation showed that the website was written in Vietnamese, which attracted many Vietnamese migrant workers in the area, Chang said.

About 30 Vietnamese migrant workers were customers of the website in March alone, raking in more than NT$100,000 (US$3,361) for Wu and his group, he said.    [FULL  STORY]
