Three Legislators Detained for Bribery Case|蘇震清.陳超明.廖國棟3立委 北院:有羈押必要


The legislative Yuan's session agenda was changed in the last minute after it received a request from the Taipei District Court. Judges request consent to extend detention of three lawmakers, who were involved in the SOGO bribery case.


The Taipei District Court sent an urgent request at 8:20 am on September 22, requesting consent from the Legislative Yuan to extend the detention of three lawmakers, including Kuomintang legislators Chen Chao-ming, Liao Kuo-tung and Democratic Progressive Party legislator Su Chen-ching. Judges believe they were involved in a major crime and did not reveal the whole truth.

The judge believes the three including Su Chen-ching, Liao Kuo-tung and Chen Chao-ming, violated Item Three, Section One, Article Five of the Anti-Corruption Act. Since all three suspects are incumbent legislators, therefore according to the Additional Articles to the Constitution, a legislative approval was needed before the court can extend the detentions.

After cross-party discussions, we all agreed to the District Court's request to detain these legislators.

The legislative session agenda was adjusted immediately after the legislative Yuan received the detention request. After cross-party negotiations, Legislative Speaker
Yu Shyi-kun announced that all parties have agreed to the Court's detention request.

The Court has requested the detention of legislator Su Chen-ching, Liao Kuo-tung and Chen Chao-ming. All Party Caucus have agreed to the request.

Once the Taipei District Court received the legislative document, the three suspects would be notified and sent back to the detention center. In addition to the bribery case, prosecutors also suspected former legislator Tsai Huang-liang and Kao Chien-chih, the assistant to Su Chia-chuan for leaking information by alerting Su Chen-ching back in 2016 and 2017 that the prosecutor was investigating the SOGO bribery case so that Su would have the time to collude with others.

The Taipei District Prosecutors' Office has started another investigation into the case regarding confidential information leakages.

According to the Minister of Justice, the Prosecutors' Office has started another case investigating the illegal leakage of information and subpoenaed Tsai Huang-liang and Kao Chien-chih to explain their involvement.



台北地方法院審理立委集體涉貪案移審庭,22號凌晨認定民進黨立委蘇震清有避重就輕之嫌、以及國民黨立委陳超明、廖國棟三位立委,因犯罪嫌疑重大、有羈押禁見必要。由於立法院會期中,拘押立委須經立法院許可,一早台北地院緊急由法警8點20分送達公文,徵詢許可。

台北地方法院一庭長 李殷君表示:「被告蘇震清、廖國棟、陳超明的部分,合議庭是認為,三位涉犯貪汙治罪條例、第五條第一項第三款,犯罪嫌疑重大。因為三位為現任立法委員,依憲法增修條文,此部分待立法院許可,後續才有強制處分作為。」

民進黨立委 鄭運鵬表示:「目前各黨團的協商結論,也簽字了,會同意地方法院羈押這幾位委員。」

立法院院會22號上午,將三位立委羈押案,列入臨時議程,經黨團協商後,9點20分立法院長游錫堃宣布,各黨團都同意羈押。

立法院長 游錫堃表示:「(台北地方法院)函請本院許可,羈押委員蘇震清、廖國棟、陳超明一案,各黨團同意列入,予以許可羈押。」

台北地院收到立院函文後,將告知蘇震清、陳超明、廖國棟三人,立院同意羈押,稍晚將三人還送看守所。不過立委集體涉貪,也牽扯出洩密案外案,檢調偵辦SOGO案發現,今年7月底的搜索風聲提早走漏,前民進黨立委蔡煌瑯與蘇嘉全特助高建智,涉嫌在2016年、2017年間,數度向蘇震清事示警,讓蘇震清有機會提早串證。

法務部長 蔡清祥表示:「洩密的部分,台北地檢署,已經分案在偵查中。」

法務部長表示,洩密案已另立分案追查洩密者,檢調也傳喚蔡煌瑯、高建智到案說明。
