  • 18 Taiwan fraud suspects deported to China from Indonesia: MOFA

Indonesia has deported more than 140 Chinese and Taiwanese to China, where they are wanted for impersonating police and scamming businessmen and politicians out of hundreds of million of dollars.

Taiwan issued a protest to Beijing Thursday over a decision by Indonesia to deport 22 Taiwanese fraud suspects to China, the latest such deportation to hit the island amid frosty cross-strait ties.

In a statement the ministry said Jakarta had ignored Taipei's request that the Taiwanese suspects be returned to the island and instead sent them to the mainland cities of Chengdu and Tianjin on Thursday.

Taiwan also emphasized that China and Taiwan should cooperate to investigate cross-border crime.

Indonesia had cooperated with China to arrest the 143 suspects on Saturday, the statement said.

Indonesia's immigration office spokesman Agung Sampurno said all of the 143 suspects were Chinese nationals.

The Indonesian police were still detaining four people from China's Taiwan, and one Malaysian national related to the gang's operation in Indonesia.

Taiwan, an island China considers a wayward province, has protested to Vietnam, Cambodia and Kenya for doing the same thing.

The incident is the latest of several worldwide deportations of Taiwanese suspects to China since Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen came to power last May.

Under former China-friendly president Ma Ying-jeou, suspects would usually have been deported back to Taiwan as part of informal arrangements between crimefighting agencies in China, Taiwan, and countries where the fraudsters are operating.

There have been several cases in recent years in which Taiwanese nationals arrested overseas for alleged involvement in telecom fraud have been deported to China, with Beijing arguing that the victims were all Chinese nationals or that it provided information that helped crack the cases.
