Former Presidential Office deputy secretary-general Chen Che-nan (陳哲男), will be released on NT$6 million bail. Hearings for the case ended at the Taipei District Court yesterday, and a verdict will be announced on Dec. 13. The court granted bail to the former top presidential aide at around 7pm last night. Chen has been implicated in a slew of scandals, most prominently a profiteering scandal surrounding the Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp and a labor brokerage firm hiring Thai workers. Chen is also accused of receiving money to bribe judges. The Taipei District Prosecutors' Office is seeking a 12 year sentence for the former official. The decision to release Chen was made because prosecutors said there was no chance of collusion between witnesses.
