Taiwan's former president cleared in political leaks case

Taiwan's former president Ma Ying-jeou has been acquitted in a political leaks case today. 

Ma was cleared of charges of leaking secrets and instructing a top prosecutor to disclose confidential information about a 2013 judicial probe in a final verdict handed down by the High Court. 

A Court spokeswoman said that the relevant evidence provided by prosecutors failed to prove any crime committed by the defendant and added that the decision was final. The High Court had initially sentenced Ma to four months in prison last year for violating the Communication Security and Surveillance Act but the Supreme Court revoked that conviction in January and ordered a new trial.

Ma was the third ex-president in Taiwan to be indicted on criminal charges. His predecessor Chen Shui-bian was serving a 20-year sentence for corruption before he was freed on medical parole in 2015. 

Lee Teng-hui was charged with embezzling state funds during his 1988-2000 presidency, but was acquitted.
