Taipei, Feb. 17 (CNA) Taiwan on Sunday expressed grave concern and serious regret
after Spain deported another two Taiwanese citizens suspected of involvement in telecoms fraud to China last Friday, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
The two men were part of a large group of 219 Taiwanese nationals arrested in the European country for alleged involvement in fraud in late 2016, MOFA said.
Three of the suspects were previously sent to China for trial in 2018.
MOFA spokesman Andrew Lee (李憲章) said Taiwan had repeatedly called on Madrid to honor the nationality principle by deporting them back to Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
