TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taipei prosecutors Friday sought prison terms totaling 49 years for a television entertainer, as they indicted him on various counts of rape and attempted rape involving eight women, including a 14-year-old girl.
The Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office said in a press release that they had concluded a probe into allegations against the TV entertainer, who was identified only by his surname, Chin, and indicted him on seven counts of rape and three counts of attempted rape.
The indicted is apparently Chin Wei, 49, who was named in previous media reports as a suspect in a rape investigation by Taipei prosecutors.
Chin could not be reached for comment following the indictment, according to some of the latest media reports.
One of the women was allegedly raped in 2002, when she was only 14. Identified in the indictment as victim “F,” she was a member of Chin’s fans club and was raped while accompanying the entertainer to a recording session at a Taipei studio. [FULL STORY]
