Justin Lee Surrenders Himself to Police for Sex Crime Charges
Taiwanese socialite, Justin Lee (李宗瑞) has been wanted by the police for allegedly drugging and raping numerous female celebrities. The police awarded $200,000 TWN for information on Justin’s whereabouts. After missing for 23 days, Justin surrendered and turned himself in to the police. Due to the severity of the sex crimes involved, the police held Justin in custody.
It was reported that Justin had videotaped 60 models and actresses while performing sexual acts. As several of the women were unconscious, it was suspected that Justin had drugged and raped them. The public had begun to speculate on the identities of the victims. After several of Justin’s sex photos leaked on the internet–to the embarrassment of Taiwanese authorities–the clues to the identities of the women emerged.
After the police confirmed Maggie Wu (吴亚馨) to be one of the sex scandal’s victims, the Taiwanese model and actress had an emotional breakdown. Initially, Maggie intended to address the matter during a media conference. However, it had been called off as Maggie was unable to face the public at this time.
Justin Had Not Changed Clothes in Days
Missing for close to a month, Justin appeared at the police station at 8:30 PM last night. Wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans, it was evident that Justin had not changed clothes in days. At the police station, Justin who had messy hair, attempted to keep a low profile and acted as a “passerby”. However, reporters still recognized him, thus Justin rushed inside. Police officers then escorted him to an interrogation room. Soon after, three lawyers arrived to assist with Justin’s case.
Police Department Holds Press Conference on Justin’s Surrender
At 9:30 PM, the police held a media conference to advise on the development of Justin’s surrender. The spokesperson indicated that contact to the police was initiated by Justin at approximately 4 PM. It was stated that Justin wanted to surrender with a “Ms. Chan”. After the police confirmed Justin’s identity, the prosecutor told Justin to drive towards Taipei. At approximately 8:30 PM, Justin arrived at the police station along with his lawyers.
As Justin was a wanted criminal, he was apprehended and his case would be thoroughly investigated. Regarding the aforementioned Ms. Chan, her relationship with Justin is still unclear. Police will be conducting an investigation to obtain a better understanding of whether she was harboring a fugitive or an accomplice to the crimes. Once it becomes clear, another media conference would be held to address her involvement.
In addition, tabloids earlier linked Dee Hsu’s (徐熙娣) husband, Mike Hsu (許雅鈞) to Justin Lee’s sex scandal. Yesterday, Mike Hsui issued a press statement claiming that he did not know Justin well and did not have any monetary exchanges with him. Mike further stated that he did not know the women implicated in the sex scandal other.
