Aaron Yan’s Travel Ban Gets Lifted

As a result of being investigated for filming and possessing intimate filming minor, Taiwanese artist Aaron Yan (炎亞綸), received a travel ban from leaving the country. The travel ban was set to expire at the end of the month, but the Shilin District Court in Taipei granted a lift on the travel restriction provided that Aaron pays a bail of $1.5 million New Taiwan Dollar.

Last June, Aaron was accused by male influencer Yao Le (耀樂) of engaging and filming their sexual activities when Yao Le was 16 years old. As investigations went underway, Aaron received a travel ban that was set to expire on February 25 of this year. Aaron applied to lift his travel ban in January for work reasons but the court ultimately rejected the request.

The court held a trial hearing a few days ago to reevaluate Aaron’s request and grant Aaron’s travel ban. The court’s ruling considered Aaron’s consistent court appearances as well as the nature of his career which relies on public trust and perception. The court agreed that Aaron’s career would be significantly damaged if Aaron flees from the country.

Due to the psychological and binding elements, the court ruled that Aaron’s travel ban can be lifted on the condition that Aaron pays his bail by 3p.m. on February 23. If Aaron fails to satisfy his bail, his travel ban would be extended for eight months and Aaron could appeal.
