Pacific Group on Money Laundering, the Taiwan High Prosecutors Office instructed the National Police Agency to dissolve money laundering operations across Taiwan on Sept. 26.
According to the Liberty Times, a joint investigation between Taiwanese authorities will lead to prosecutions in relation to six syndicates which are breaking anti-money laundering laws.
Police mobilized hundreds of officers, interviewing dozens of suspects and associates across Taiwan, reported China Times.
