A special unit consisting of members of the Criminal Investigation Bureau’s 2nd
Investigation Corp and the New Taipei City Government’s Police Group ambushed five suspected United Bamboo Union members at their homes on Tuesday morning.
The United Bamboo Union is the largest of Taiwan’s three main Triad groups, which are transnational organized crime syndicates involved in drug trafficking, extortion, and other organized crime. The men belong to a division of the union known as the tienlongpang (天龍幫).
The special unit has been investigating these five men, one of whom is prime suspect Chiu Hung-ju, since March of last year under suspicions that they were involved in violent debt collection in New Taipei City and Taoyuan. [FULL STORY]
