TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Investigators raided military installations and private homes Friday looking for evidence about a Navy officer suspected of leaking confidential military information.

The man served from January 7, 2011 until July 30 this year on the French-made Chengde frigate, where he was in charge of information system maintenance.
