4 Singaporeans arrested in Taiwan over alleged rape of 2 women

The four Singaporean men were arrested before flying off from Taiwan and three of them were charged on Tuesday night.  

TAIPEI: Four Singaporeans were arrested in Taiwan on Tuesday (Dec 13) after two Taiwanese women were allegedly raped. 

The men, all aged 23 and said to be students, had travelled to Taiwan last week for holiday. They met the two local women and invited them back to where they were staying, before allegedly getting them drunk and raping them.

The four men then tried to leave Taiwan on Dec 13 but were arrested before they could, according to a spokesman for the Shilin District Prosecutors Office.

Three of them have been charged with rape and could face a maximum of 10 years in jail if convicted. The other was allowed bail of NT$15,000 (S$673.50), because the women said he did not participate in the rape.
