1,199 Taiwan Businessmans Jailed in China In 10 Years

Posted by Author on August 25, 2007

As of the end of last month, 1,199 men and women from Taiwan had been charged with tax evasion, operating illegally, fraud and other offenses, an official said.

China has detained and jailed more than 1,000 Taiwanese in the past decade, showing it is risky to do business on the other side of the Taiwan Strait, a Taiwanese official said yesterday.

“As of the end of July, 1,199 Taiwanese businesspeople have been locked behind bars in China in the past decade after being charged with evading taxes, illegal operations, fraud and many other offenses,” Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) Vice Chairman Jonasson Liu (劉德勳) said.

Liu said that most of these businesspeople, unaware of China’s laws, had been framed or set up by Chinese nationals who ended up taking over their business investments in China.

“This shows that it is risky for Taiwanese who are not aware of the laws there to do business in China,” Liu said.

Meanwhile, 42 Taiwanese tourists have been stranded in China after the head of a travel agency they hired disappeared with more than NT$4 million (US$122,000), the Taiwan Tourism Bureau said yesterday.
