From Washington Post:
The indictments were the latest in a series of scandals to beset Chen, his aides and his family during and since his eight years as leader of this self-ruled island. The accusations have overshadowed his legacy as an advocate for Taiwanese national identity and independence from China.
Chen, who left office in May, is himself under investigation for his handling of secret state funds. His wife, Wu Shu-chen, was indicted on charges of embezzling $450,000 from government accounts while Chen was still in office, and her trial is underway. In addition, their son-in-law has been convicted of insider trading and several senior aides of influence peddling.
