Legislature approves top prosecutor's nomination

TAIPEI--The Legislative Yuan on Tuesday approved the nomination of Yen Da-ho (顏大和), currently chief prosecutor of the Supreme Prosecutors Office, as the next state prosecutor-general.

The nomination was approved by a 62-0 vote in the 113-seat Legislature, with 50 lawmakers, mostly from the opposition Democratic Progressive Party, abstaining.

The 65-year-old Yen, who has a bachelor's degree in law from National Taiwan University, has served in the prosecutorial system since 1978.

He is also a former vice minister of justice.

Yen will succeed 64-year-old Huang Shyh-ming (黃世銘), who resigned on March 21 after he was found guilty by a district court of leaking classified information related to an ongoing investigation.

Huang's four-year term was originally set to end April 18.
