Council of Labor Affairs revokes starlet's work permit

Taipei, March 5 (CNA) The Council of Labor Affairs (CLA) said Monday its work permit issued to Makiyo, a half-Japanese starlet working in Taiwan who was indicted for her part in a brutal assault on a cabdriver, has been revoked, which means she cannot work in Taiwan for three years. Fu Hui-chih, a section chief at the CLA's Bureau of Employment and Vocational Training, said Makiyo's work permit was revoked Feb. 16. The woman was barred from leaving Taiwan when the Taipei District Prosecutors Office indicted her and a Japanese friend, Takateru Tomoyori, for "inflicting serious bodily harm" to the taxi driver Feb. 10. The prosecutors have recommended a six-year prison sentence for Tomoyori and a four-year term for Makiyo. Fu said that according to article 73 of the Employment Services Act, foreign workers who are involved in serious violation of local laws will have their employment permits annulled.
