TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — For the first time in Taiwan’s history, a national police chief was referred to prosecutors for an investigation, after accusations of forgery in connections with appointments Friday (March 27).

The Ministry of Interior and the Control Yuan, the country’s top government watchdog, received allegations that National Police Agency (NPA) Director-General Chen Chia-chin (陳家欽) officially transferred three secretaries to the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB), but that they were actually still working at his office, CNA reported.

He also used a doctored selection process to promote the three secretaries, according to the allegations, while in a separate case, he recruited a confidant once involved in a drunk driving case.

After looking into the matter, the Ministry of Interior referred the case to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office, which entrusted the Agency Against Corruption (AAC) at the Ministry of Justice with continuing the investigation.    [FULL  STORY]
