He was referring to an alleged bribery case which has rocked the Legislative Yuan. Three lawmakers, three legislative aides, and one businessman were ordered detained incommunicado Tuesday, while a former party leader and earlier a former foreign minister and another lawmakers were allowed out on bail.
