Three Kaohsiung police officers were yesterday convicted of taking bribes from illegal electronic gaming operators and were given prison sentences of 12 years or more.
When the investigation began last year, all three officers were suspended before being detained. They were later released on bail.
Kaohsiung police inspector Tsai Ching-te (蔡景德) received the heaviest punishment of 18 years, 6 months in jail, with the court also imposing an NT$8 million (US$258,732) fine for contravening the Anti-Corruption Act (貪污治罪條例).
