Authorities in Taiwan have re-arrested 18 telecom fraud suspects and slapped a travel ban on two others just days after they had been freed for “lack of evidence” — a move that was heavily criticized.
Taichung District Court issued its ruling early Thursday morning after the district prosecutor’s office summoned the 20 suspects, who were released last Saturday by Taiwan police, Xinhua News Agency reported.
The office said it had obtained evidence from Malaysia that was enough to support the arrests. The decision to release the suspects last Saturday was met with criticism from major media outlets and the public.

The 77 alleged telecom fraud syndicate members were deported from Kenya earlier this month. They will be tried on the Chinese mainland, a Ministry of Public Security (MPS) official said Thursday.
Chen Shiqu, a deputy inspector with the MPS criminal investigation bureau, explained that a delegation from Taiwan is now in Beijing to discuss the case with mainland police. Forty-five of the alleged fraudsters are from Taiwan.
"The suspects specifically targeted people on the Chinese mainland, and their victims are from the mainland. Not to mention that many of the suspects are themselves from the mainland," Chen said.
"They will therefore be investigated, prosecuted and tried in accordance with mainland law," he continued.
All 45 Taiwanese suspects have already "admitted their guilt," Chen said.
