Taipei City Ethics Department determined that Chen did not avoid conflicts of interest, which is illegal, in its own investigation.


Chen Hsin-yu, Commissioner of Taipei City Labor Department, has been accused of corruption. Prosecutors executed a search warrant on the 27th. Chen was brought in and questioned as a suspect. She was later released that night on NT$200,000 bail.

Reporter: “Do you feel aggrieved? What do you think about the issue of bail?”
Chen Hsin-yu, Commissioner, Labor Dept., Taipei: “I respect the decision.”
 
She did not directly answer any questions and left quickly in a car. Prosecutors interviewed Chen because she was suspected of illegally using her special allowance. She submitted receipts from tens to hundreds of NT dollars, mostly small expenses, such as treating colleagues to meals. Prosecutors also found most of these expenses submitted were during her vacation time and the locations were near her home. However, not only were receipts falsely submitted, she was also suspected of using her special allowance to procure goods from her husband's company.

Chen Chih-han, Spokesperson, Taipei City Gov't: “Our Ethics Department is also actively investigating. We did find that she did violate the Recusal of Public Servants Due to Conflicts of Interest Act. We actually already sent our investigation report to the Control Yuan. We will discuss later today whether she needs to take time off as commissioner or if we need to appoint an interim commissioner.”

It was revealed that Chen spent several tens of thousands of NT dollars buying wine from her husband's company. Taipei City Government stated that the Civil Service Ethics Department determined that Chen did not avoid conflicting interests, which is considered an illegal act. The report has already been sent to the Control Yuan. Chen continues to be imbedded in constant controversies. First, she was questioned for being administratively impartial. Now, prosecutors will investigate her for possible corruption crimes.

 

 

 

台北市勞動局長陳信瑜,爆出涉貪爭議,檢調27日發動搜索,以嫌疑人身分約談到案,漏夜偵訊後,陳信瑜20萬元交保。

記者問北市勞動局長陳信瑜:「會不會覺得很委屈?」「對於交保這個事情,有什麼看法?」陳信瑜回應:「尊重,還是尊重。」

諸多疑問,沒有正面回覆,搭車快閃,這回,檢調搜索約談,因為陳信瑜,首長特別費使用,涉嫌不法。從數十元到上百元,多筆小額開銷,以慰勞同仁餐敘核銷申報,卻被檢調查出,多在她放假期間,地點還剛好選在她住家一帶,不過,不只報帳名目可能不實引發質疑,甚至還涉嫌護短,用特別費,向她丈夫成立的公司,進行採購。

台北市府發言人陳智菡回應:「我們政風處也主動調查,那調查結果是的確在相關報支的部分,有違反了公職人員的利益衝突迴避法,這部分我們已經送到監察院了,局長職務的部分,她會不會接下來可能會需要請假,或者是需不需要職務的代理,這部分我們今天也會來做討論。」

陳信瑜被揭露,好幾筆破萬花費,不避嫌和丈夫公司買酒,北市府表示,經政風處調查,認定沒有利益迴避,構成違法,已送監察院,陳信瑜風波連環爆,先是遭質疑行政不中立,現在又因涉貪惹議,檢方也將全案《貪污治罪條例》偵辦。
