    Taiwan ex-leader jailed for life


    [​IMG] Mr Chen chose to stay in detention rather than hear the verdict in person

    Taiwan's former President Chen Shui-bian has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of corruption by a court in Taipei. Mr Chen was charged with embezzlement, taking bribes and money laundering, involving a total of $15m (£9m) while in office from 2000-2008.
    Mr Chen had denied the charges, saying they were politically motivated.
    His wife, Wu Shu-chen, already jailed for perjury in the case, was also sentenced to life for corruption.
    'Illegal' sentence
    Taipei District Court convicted Mr Chen on six charges and Mrs Wu on seven charges. The were also fined $15m.
    "Chen Shui-bian and Wu Shu-chen were sentenced to life in prison because Chen has done grave damage to the country and Wu because she was involved in corruption deals as the first lady," said court spokesman Huang Chun-ming.
