Taipei, April 29 (CNA) Prosecutors demanded Wednesday a 30-year jail term
for former Nantou County Magistrate Lee Chao-ching and his wife’s brother who had been indicted on charges of taking kickbacks from contractors while Lee was in office.
Also indicted in the well known corruption case were officials and advisors in Lee’s county government, for each of whom prosecutors requested jail terms ranging from 12 to 2 years, in addition to depriving them of civil rights for shorter periods than expected jail sentences.
Nantou District Court began hearing the case in March 2013, following a public indictment on charges of violating the nation’s Anti-Corruption Act. [FULL STORY]
