The Taipei District Prosecutors Office has completed its investigation into the Legislative Yuan collective bribery and corruption scandal and has indicted 12 individuals under the Anti-Corruption Act. Prosecutors discovered during the investigation that the legislators in question accepted total bribes of close to NT$50 million.

Do you want to pay bail as soon as possible? Do you want the Legislative Yuan to get you out?

Prosecutors have indicted 12 in the Legislative Yuan corruption and bribery case, including former lawmaker Hsu Yung-ming and current lawmakers Su Chen-ching, Liao Kuo-tung, Chen Chao-ming and Chao Cheng-yu.

Between 2012 and 2020 until they were arrested, the defendants accepted cash and bribes and used the power of their office to do the bidding of the defendant surnamed Lee by attacking, harassing and intimidating civil servants.

In the indictment notice, former Pacific Distribution Investment Co. Chair Lee Heng-lung is accused of bribing Su, Liao, Chen, Hsu and others using Kuo Ke-ming and others as middlemen, and using legal revisions and public hearings to pressure Ministry of Economic Affairs officials into revoking his company's capital increase registration to snatch back the operating rights to SOGO. Prosecutors say Su took the most bribes of NT$25.8 million, followed by Liao with NT$7.9 million.

In addition, (Lee) used public hearings and other methods in his fight for PDIC operating rights and forcibly used international arbitration to maliciously twist and abuse the original intent of the agreement signed between Taiwan and Singapore. He also politicized judicial issues to violate our jurisdiction and force Taiwan into the middle of international disputes.

Lee and "fixer" Ting Fu-hua have made full confessions and turned witness for the prosecution in exchange for lighter sentences. Former lawmaker Mark Chen escaped indictment,

While independent lawmaker Chao Cheng-yu was indicted for his involvement in a related cemetery lobbying case. Prosecutors are seeking a heavy sentence and confiscation of illegal gains.

「會不會希望趕快交保出去?會不會希望立法院,救你們出來?」

包括現任立委蘇震清、廖國棟、陳超明、趙正宇,和前立委徐永明等12人,因為涉嫌集體收賄案,21號遭到檢方依貪汙治罪條例罪嫌提起公訴。

北檢襄閱主任檢察官 陳玉萍表示:「然竟自甘墮落,自101年起,至109年,因本案遭逮捕時止,期約收受金錢賄賂,而變賣國家公權力,淪為李姓被告所豢養的家臣。對於堅持遵循最高行政法院,判決決定依法行政的公務員,以鞭笞、騷擾及恫嚇。」

起訴書中指出,前太流公司負責人李恆隆,涉嫌透過郭克銘等人,行賄立委蘇震清、廖國棟、陳超明、前立委徐永明等人;透過公司法修法,或舉辦公聽會,施壓經濟部官員撤銷太流增資登記,企圖奪回SOGO經營權。其中民進黨立委蘇震清收賄2580萬元最多,國民黨立委廖國棟也收賄790萬的賄款。

北檢襄閱主任檢察官 陳玉萍表示:「更不惜以我國為質,欲藉由公聽會等方式,將太流公司經營權之爭,強行透過上開協定訴諸國際仲裁。惡意扭曲,濫用我國與新加坡簽訂協定的初衷,並將司法問題政治化,藉此實質侵犯我國司法權,強行將我國無端捲入國際紛爭。」

由於李恆隆和白手套丁復華,為爭取減刑,在偵查中,已經自白,轉為汙點證人,而前立委陳唐山則獲不起訴。另外,檢方也查出無黨籍立委趙正宇,涉嫌替殯葬關說案件,將他提起公訴,建請法院從重量刑,並宣告沒收不法所得。
