The Taiwan High Court doesn’t fool around when it comes to sentences for corruption … check out these reports from the Taipei Times.
“[On June 14] The Taiwan High Court yesterday upheld a guilty verdict for former Keelung City Council speaker Huang Ching-tai (黃景泰) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), handing him a 15-year prison sentence with deprivation of civil rights for four years. It was a reduced term for the 51-year-old Lee in the second ruling on the case after he was given a 20-year sentence by the Keelung District Court in the first ruling in August 2015.”
The Taipei Times also reports:
“(Also from June 14, 2017) The Taiwan High Court yesterday upheld a guilty verdict handed to former Nantou County commissioner Lee Chao-ching (李朝卿) of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), who was charged with corruption for siphoning funds from public projects, sentencing him to 22 years in prison and deprivation of civil rights for 10 years.”
Woah! 15 to 20-something-year terms?
Appropriate or too much?
