Shorter sentence for Chen's wife

TAIWAN ex-leader Chen Shui-bian's wife Wu Shu-chen was sentenced to nine months in jail yesterday.

Investigations showed she had collected personal invoices from Chen's two children and other people to get reimbursement from public money, Taiwan's high court said. Wu was sentenced to a year in jail in September in the first trial of her perjury case.

When the high court began the second trial in November, Wu and others confessed but pleaded for shorter jail terms.

Wu was accused of having told her son, Chen Chih-chung, and daughter, Chen Hsing-yu to give false testimony.

The high court also cut three months from the six-month terms imposed on her son, her daughter and son-in-law.

Diana Chen, former chairwoman of Taipei 101 Mall, received an eight-month jail term, down from the previous 18 months, as her statement at court "evidently" did not match investigation records.
