Taiwan Prosecutor in Hong Kong For Chen Probe: Report

From AFP:

A Taiwanese prosecutor has flown to Hong Kong as part of a investigation of former president Chen Shui-bian and his family for alleged money laundering, a report here said on Tuesday.

The Apple Daily said prosecutor Yueh Fang-ju, who left on Monday, had documents related to 20 dummy accounts allegedly set up by Chen’s wife through her brother and friends in Hong Kong.

The report said prosecutors were probing whether some 200 million Taiwan dollars (6.25 million US) in those bank accounts came from state coffers.
