Former Taiwan leader Chen indicted again

Former Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian has been indicted on new embezzlement charges after the court convicted him of corruption and sentenced him to life in prison earlier this month.

Prosecutorial spokesman Chen Yun-nan said new charges were filed Tuesday against the former leader for allegedly embezzling $330,000 from official expense funds for his 11 overseas trips as the "president".

Chen Shui-bian was sentenced to life in prison on September 11 after the court found him guilty of embezzling $3.15 million during his 2000-2008 presidency from a special "presidential" fund, receiving bribes worth at least $9 million, and laundering some of the money through Swiss bank accounts.

He has appealed the sentence.
