For her part, Shen claimed Lin had handed over the entire NT$63 million, which she said she had deposited in various safe deposit boxes, part of which had been entrusted to Peng.

However, Peng claims all the money seized by prosecutors from safe deposit boxes rented under the names of her acquaintances were given by Lin and that she was unaware of the source.

In related news, the Kaohsiung District Prosecutors’ Office denied claims by the magazine that Kaohsiung head prosecutor Wang Chi-ming (王啟明) had asked the Greater Kaohsiung Government’s Environmental Protection Bureau to punish Ti Yung and may have conspired with Lin.

The office said it had received several complaints that Ti Yung was violating environmental protection laws and that Wang’s suggestion at an environmental protection meeting had nothing to do with politics or the Lin scandal.

The Ministry of Justice announced it had launched an administrative investigation into Wang’s possible involvement.
