September decision in Chen case

THE Taipei district court plans to deliver a verdict in former Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian's corruption case at around 4pm on September 11, sources at the court said yesterday.

Tsai Shou-hsum, the presiding judge in Chen's corruption case, said after a trial on a land purchase deal in connection with the former leader that the trial of Chen's cases was "drawing to a close."

The trial has entered its final stage of debate, he said. The last round of debate will be held on July 28, regardless of whether or not Chen chose to cooperate.

Chen was first indicted on December 12 for money laundering and bribery. He and his wife were charged with embezzling NT$104 million (US$3.15 million) in public funds and accepting bribes of at least US$9 million in a land purchase deal.

Chen was elected Taiwan leader about nine years ago, but was ousted in May last year.
