Taipei, June 6 (CNA) The ruling Kuomintang (KMT) decided Friday to expel former Taoyuan Deputy Magistrate Yeh Shih-wen over his involvement in a case of alleged corruption. The KMT's central disciplinary committee reached the decision based on a recommendation by the party's clean government committee, said KMT spokesman Chen I-hsin. He said the party dealt with the matter case in the shortest possible time to reaffirm its commitment to clean government. Yeh was detained by prosecutors on corruption charges May 31 for allegedly taking bribes from a real estate developer to help the company win a tender for the construction of a low-cost housing project in Taoyuan County. Yeh was dismissed by Taoyuan Magistrate Wu Chih-yang immediately after the case came to light. (By Claudia Liu and Y.F. Low)
