Taiwan president's son-in-law was sentenced to prison for insider trading
Kyle Webster at 12:00 AM ET

On December 27, 2006, President Chen Shui-bian's son-in-law Chao Chien-min was sentenced to six years in prison for insider trading. This was one of several scandals involving Chen and his family during his two terms as president. In October 2011, Chen was sentenced to 18 years in prison for financial fraud on top of a 20 year prison sentence he received in June 2010 for corruption charges. Chen claims that these charges are political retaliation by current President Ma Ying-jeou.
