Beijing, April 21 (CNA) Officials of Taiwan and China have agreed to jointly
investigate telecom fraud rings run by Taiwanese in Kenya and Malaysia that have allegedly targeted Chinese citizens, the head of a Taiwanese official delegation said Thursday.
Chen Wen-chi (陳文琪), director general of the Department of International and Cross-Strait Legal Affairs under Taiwan’s Ministry of Justice, said the Chinese government also agreed to allow family members of the 45 Taiwanese suspects now detained in Beijing to visit them.
Chen had earlier in the day conducted talks with the Taiwanese suspects deported from Kenya to China earlier this month, using video link equipment in a large conference room, which was open to news cameramen from Taiwan, China and Hong Kong. [FULL STORY]
