Taipei, April 15 (CNA) Twenty Taiwanese suspects sent back from Malaysia for their alleged involvement in telecommunications fraud scams in that country were set free late Wednesday after they arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, according to the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB).
The CIB said in a press release that after discussions with Taichung district prosecutors, it was decided that the suspects will only be notified in writing that they are embroiled in fraud schemes and were allowed to go home for “lack of solid evidence of their criminal activities.”
Most of the suspects are residents of central Taiwan’s Taichung City.
The CIB said it will ask mainland authorities to provide information about the illegal activities of these suspects in order to conduct a further investigation into their offenses. [FULL STORY]
