Run­away mur­der con­vict sent back to Tai­wan: CIB

The China Post - - LOCAL -

A run­away con­vict who killed a man in 2004 was ex­tra­dited back to Tai­wan on June 5, the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Bureau (CIB, ) has an­nounced.

The man, sur­named Lin, was sen­tenced to a 15-and-a-half-yearprison term by Kaoh­si­ung Dis­trict Court for mur­der­ing a man, the CIB said in a re­leased state­ment.

Lin killed the vic­tim at a Karaoke bar in Kaoh­si­ung in Jan­uary 2004 dur­ing a scuf­fle.

In an at­tempt to avoid serv­ing prison time, Lin se­cretly left Tai­wan for China be­fore he was to be­gin serv­ing his jail term. He has been put on the wanted list by the Kaoh­si­ung Dis­trict Pros­e­cu­tors Of­fice in Au­gust 2005. Lin has also been wanted in con­nec­tion with three other cases, the CIB said.

The CIB re­cently re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that Lin was hid­ing at an apart­ment at Guangzhou city, Guang­dong province in South China. It then in­formed the Guangzhou author­i­ties be­fore they ar­rested Lin.

In ac­cor­dance with the Crossstrait Joint Fight against Crime and Mu­tual Le­gal As­sis­tance Agree­ment, Hsu was de­ported back to Tai­wan on June 5, the CIB said.
