Eleven people, including some college students, were detained and questioned by investigators yesterday on suspicion of spreading sex videos allegedly made by socialite Justin Lee (李宗瑞).

Taipei prosecutors yesterday led 50 police officers in searching 12 locations nationwide, including a college dormitory in Greater Tainan’s Gueiren District (歸仁). The prosecutors seized a number of computers and the 11 were sent to the Taipei District Prosecutors’ Office for questioning. The questionings were on-going at press time.

To prevent a number of sex videos allegedly filmed by Lee from further circulating, prosecutors launched the legal action yesterday

Prosecutors said the circulation of such material may have violated regulations on the distribution of sexual material and offenses against privacy, and warned people to stop spreading them.

Meanwhile, Lee, who has been accused of drugging and raping a number of women, among them celebrities, and filming the acts, underwent another round of questioning by prosecutors yesterday.

Prosecutors said two videos allegedly filmed by Lee were examined during the questioning. In the two video clips, someone resembling Lee was seen engaging in sexual acts with two women.

Prosecutors said Lee insisted it was consensual sex and denies he raped any woman.

Lee, son of former Yuanta Financial Holdings director Lee Yueh-tsang (李岳蒼), turned himself in to prosecutors on Aug. 13 after three weeks on the run.
