Fifth suspect held in latest oil scandal在最新的石油醜聞舉行的第五次犯罪嫌疑人

 


Hsin Hao is suspected of supplying questionable oil to Cheng I Food Co., a subsidiary of industry giant Ting Hsin International Group (頂新國際集團) that has come under fire for selling edible oils containing oils not intended for human consumption.

The Chiayi District Prosecutors Office asked the local court to approve the detention of Yung Cheng Oil Co. owner Tsai Chen-chou (蔡鎮洲) on fears that he may destroy evidence showing that his company sold animal feed oil to Hsin Hao Co (鑫好).Chiayi District Court on Sunday approved a prosecution request for detaining an executive of an oil company on suspicion of selling lard-based cooking oils that were made with oils used in animal feed.


TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Late yesterday, Kaohsiung prosecutors obtained court approval for the detention of Cheng-I Food Co.'s (正義食品) upstream oil supplier Lin Ming-Chung (林明忠). Lin is the fifth suspect to be detained over the tainted oil scandal that has rocked the nation.
 

Tsai was detained also because of concerns his company will continue to sell animal feed oil to local edible oil refiners in violation of food safety regulations, said Lin Kun-chih, spokesman for the district court.

Chief prosecutor Tsai Ying-chun said Yung Cheng (永成物料公司) is suspected of having supplied Hsin Hao with animal feed oil for over two years, with the total volume possibly exceeding more than 10,000 tons.

Tsai was the fourth individual implicated in the scandal gripping Taiwan that prosecutors have wanted to take into custody.

Earlier in the day, three individuals, including a division chief at Changhua County-based Ting Hsin Oil & Fat Industrial Co., were detained on suspicion of committing fraud and violating food safety regulations.

The three are Ting Hsin Oil & Fat quality chief Tsai Chun-yung (蔡俊勇), retired Ting Hsin Oil & Fat general manager Chang Mei-feng (常梅峰), and Yang Chen-yi (楊振益), who owned the trading company that sold oil for animal feed to the edible oil producer.

Ting Hsin Oil & Fat, another subsidiary of the Ting Hsin conglomerate, produced and sold 54 lard and lard-based edible oil products, and some or all of them may have contained animal feed oil.

During a meeting with Kuomintang (KMT) officials in Keelung, President Ma Ying-jeou said “the black-hearted” businessmen will “pay a dear price” for gaining illicit profits by unethical means.

“I believe the prosecutors will pursue the case to the very end, and will never let slip off the legal net any black-hearted manufacturer,” said Ma, who doubles as KMT chairman.

Ting Hsin Criticized for Failing to Check on Vietnam Supplier


Chiang Yu-mei, acting director-general of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), said at a press conference that Ting Hsin subsidiary Ting Hsin Oil & Fat Industrial Co. has imported oil from Vietnam since 2012 but never sent people to Vietnam to check the supplier.Taiwan's food and drug regulator on Sunday criticized Ting Hsin International Group, a food giant mired in a cooking oil scandal, for failing to learn more about the Vietnam supplier from which a subsidiary purchased lard and beef tallow.

That is not the attitude that a good and reputable company should have, Chiang said of the company.

Chiang stressed that food makers are responsible for checking on their suppliers to ensure the safety of their products.

The criticism implied that Ting Hsin may not have known it was importing oil for use in animal feed rather than for human consumption, a contention the company itself has made, pointing to certificates from the Vietnamese exporter saying the product was “fit for human use.”

But there are also suspicions that the company knew what it was doing, and a court on Sunday ordered that three executives involved in the procurement and quality control of the imported oil be detained on suspicion of committing fraud.

Legal sources of lard in Taiwan are insufficient to meet the demand for lard-based oils, forcing producers to rely on imported edible oils or raw materials, many of which are sourced from Vietnam.

The Ting Hsin International Group, best known for its instant noodle brand Master Kong, has been the target of public outrage since another of its subsidiaries, Cheng I Food Co., was exposed on Oct. 8 as having sold lard mixed with animal feed oil not meant for human consumption.

The discovery Friday that Ting Hsin Oil & Fat was apparently involved in a similar scheme only compounded the woes of the parent company and its flagship food company, Wei Chuan Foods Corp.
