Taipei, Sept. 25 (CNA) Two Taiwanese fugitives who were wanted for drug-related offenses and who had taken refuge in China have been repatriated back to Taiwan, the Criminal Investigation Bureau said Friday.
One of the men, surnamed Tsai, was found to have possessed and smoked heroin in August 1992. He was sentenced to a jail term of three years and two months, but later fled to China. He was put on a wanted list in April 2014.
Tsai was also found to have bought unauthorized embronic injection solution for reselling to gain a profit.
Another man, surnamed Hsieh, tried to sneak heroin into Taiwan via Macau in July 2009.
Hsieh hid the heroin in a toilet and asked a maintenance worker from the Taiwanese airline TransAsia Airways to retrieve it for him. He was indicted in September 2009. [FULL STORY]
