Academia Sinica President Wong Chi-huey (翁啟惠) and OBI Pharma Inc (台灣
浩鼎) chairman Michael Chang (張念慈) were yesterday both listed as defendants by prosecutors in a probe into insider trading allegations, while Ruentex Group (潤泰集團) chairman Samuel Yin (尹衍樑) and Wong’s wife were released after being questioned.
Judicial officials intensified their investigation yesterday, conducting raids on Wong’s office at Academia Sinica, the Wong family’s residences and the offices of Ruentex Group-owned China Network Systems Co (中嘉網路), a cable TV service provider.
The raids were headed up by the Taipei Shilin District Prosecutors’ Office and the Ministry of Justice’s Investigation Bureau (MJIB), with investigators seizing documents and other evidence at seven locations across the greater Taipei area.
Wong was first summoned for questioning at the MJIB’s Taipei Division Office yesterday afternoon, then taken to the Shilin District Prosecutors’ Office in the evening for further questioning. [FULL STORY]
