Indonesia to deport 11 fraud suspects to Taiwan: police
Jakarta, Sept. 13 (CNA) Eleven Taiwanese nationals arrested on suspicion of fraud in Jakarta were to be repatriated to Taiwan on Tuesday instead of being sent to China, in a joint operation between Indonesia and Taiwan police, Indonesian police said.

The 11 Taiwanese were among 31 suspects arrested in Indonesia for alleged involvement in telecom fraud, after a police raid on two residences in Jakarta on Aug. 4, Indonesian police said at a press conference at the airport.

In the joint police operation, the 11 Taiwanese suspects will be sent back to Taiwan via a direct charter flight arranged by Taiwan, the police said.

The suspects were scheduled to board the flight in Jakarta Tuesday afternoon and arrive in Taiwan around 9 p.m. (By Jay Chou and Evelyn Kao)
