A senior employee of Taiwan's presidential office was indicted on charges of providing classified information to rival China, a prosecutor said.

Wang Jen-bing was charged with violating the national security law by leaking documents gathered during the last three years of former President Chen Shui-bian's eight-year tenure, said prosecutor Huang Mou-shin. Chen left office in May.

Chen Pin-jen, a legislative aid, was indicted on similar charges, Huang said.
