A Tainan district prosecutor said yesterday that even if former Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator Chiu Yung-jen (邱永仁) pleaded guilty to embezzling money from the Bureau of National Health Insurance and returned the money, he would still face prison. The prosecutor made the remarks one day after Chiu and Independent Legislator Peter Lin (林進興) went on trial in the Tainan District Court. Chiu has confessed and agreed to a plea bargain and a donation of NT$10 million (US$304,000), while Lin pleaded not guilty.
