Lin Yi-shih's mother released on NT$2 million bail

Shen Jo-lan (沈若蘭), mother of former Cabinet Secretary-General Lin Yi-shih (林益世) who is being held incommunicado on corruption charges, was released on NT$2 million bail for her involvement in Lin's case after arriving at the Special Investigation Division (SID) uninvited yesterday.

Shen arrived at the SID at noon with her attorney, who carried for Shen a piece of luggage holding reportedly NT$18 million in bribe money owned by Lin.

SID spokesman John Chang explained that because Lin's mother was not summoned, she was first questioned as a related party. She was later listed as a defendant after eight hours of questioning and faces charges over hiding the bribe money, holding the major illegal earnings of others and concealing criminal evidence.

The SID seized the money, claimed by Shen to total NT$18 million, but has yet to count it as it appears to have been stored in moist conditions, leaving the notes stuck together.

The SID also broadened its probe to search for more accomplices involved in the recent graft scandal surrounding the former Cabinet secretary-general.

Prosecutors suspect others are involved despite Lin failing to reveal any information about more accomplices or the whereabouts of supposed illegal gains during his partial confession.

Lin has been held incommunicado since Monday after confessing to involvement in a bribery scheme. According to media reports that exposed a transcript of a recorded meeting, Lin allegedly requested a bribe of NT$83 million from Chen Chi-hsiang (陳啟祥) to help secure a slag contract with China Steel Corporation (CSC). It was the second time Lin allegedly requested a bribe, coming after he accepted NT$63 million, reports claim.

REMEMBER Lin Yi-shih's.
_Be brave to face and take the consequences of what u done of your misdeed as a corrupt civil servant..
_Be brave in the court like Egyptian Mubarak and sons'
_Be brave and don't cry out LOUD u are sick to the foreign and local media for sympathy purposes.
_Be brave even you are really sick just keep your mouth close.

LASTLY.......
_Remember that all criminal of all sorts are healthy before they are caught and become SICK when thrown INSIDE the prison cell. That is man natural phenomenon of the Criminal mental disorder.....or growing old ages....naturally become real or faking sick....
_Remember whether a government officer in High or in Low rank position or any common citizens being caught as a Criminal. The Criminals should NOT think the option to be accorded and benefited with the privilege of the two words HUMAN RIGHTS to escape the LAW.
_Remember that the two words HUMAN RIGHTS was exclusively belonging to those Law Abiding Citizens and Clean civil servant of the government.

Prepare yourself and bow to the final verdict of the Judge INSIDE the court if you are found guilty and live INSIDE the prison cell as your new home.

Don't follow the footstep of the DPP and the TZU... coward to face the consequences of their misdeed.....

Good luck and have a pleasant weekend.....
