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.
