Taiwan Probes Alleged Money Laundering By Ex-leader And Family

From AFP:

Taiwan has launched an investigation into alleged money laundering by former president Chen Shui-bian and his family following similar moves by Swiss authorities, Premier Liu Chao-shiuan said Friday.

Swiss prosecutors “have requested assistance in their investigation and we have immediately started our own probe,” Liu told reporters without elaborating.

Taiwan’s justice ministry said the request, received on July 31, was from the Swiss side which was investigating suspected money laundering by Chen’s son Chen Chih-chung and daughter-in-law Huang Jui-ching.
