Kaohsiung, July 20 (CNA) A Vietnamese worker who absconded from his legal employer was recently detained in Kaohsiung while serving as a cook at a popular local food stand, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) said in a statement Monday.

Acting on a tipoff, officers of the NIA's Kaohsiung City Service Center arrested the Vietnamese worker, identified as A-teh (阿德), from the stand that sold oyster omelets and seafood porridge in Zihguan District.

Immigration authorities are investigating the case to determine how long he has been in Taiwan and if he should be deported.

They did not provide many details about his past, other than to say he has been in Taiwan for six years.    [FULL  STORY]
