Taipei--A South Korean suspect has been identified for his possible involvement in the burglary of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) headquarters earlier this week, the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said late Friday.
The man, identified as Cho Jun Ki, was found to have entered Taiwan after having been denied entry into Japan on Aug. 2 due to unknown reasons, the CIB said.
The ruling party suffered a loss of NT$90,000 (US$2,984) in a burglary of its headquarters in Taipei on Wednesday, but its files and equipment remained intact, the party said in a statement Friday.
Surveillance footage showed that a man infiltrated the 8th floor of the building for approximately 10 minutes and left without taking any files, computers or equipment, the DPP said.
The case was reported to the police upon discovery of the theft and is now currently being investigated, according to the statement.
The DPP headquarters is located in the Huashan Business Building on 30 Beiping East Road in Taipei.
