Top politicians face graft charges

September 22, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Taiwanese prosecutors indicted the vice president and the chairman of the ruling party on graft charges.

They did not charge the party's presidential candidate or his running mate. The decision clears the way for Frank Hsieh to lead the Democratic Progressive Party's ticket in 2008.

A prosecutorial spokesman said staffers for Vice President Annette Lu and party chairman Yu Shyi-kun collected receipts from unidentified entities and used them to claim reimbursement. Yu resigned today, but denied wrongdoing.
