Prosecutors said yesterday they would pursue the family of a man accused of reaping hundreds of millions of dollars from a controversial French arms deal more than two decades ago, even after he died this year.
Andrew Wang (汪傳浦) was indicted on corruption charges in 2006 over his involvement in a slush fund linked to a US$2.8 billion contract to buy six Lafayette-class warships in 1991.
Wang was put on the most-wanted list after he and his family fled the nation shortly before the scandal broke in 1993. He died from an illness in London in January at the age of 87, officials said.
