Former Taiwan leader Chen Shui-bian was indicted on corruption charges, prosecutors said in Taipei on Friday.

Chen, his wife Wu Shu-chen, his son Chen Chih-chung and 11 others were indicted on charges including corruption, money laundering, embezzlement and forgery, prosecutorial spokesman Chen Yun-nan told a press conference.

Prosecutors had largely concluded their probe and severe punishment was expected for Chen, the spokesman said.

Chen was detained on Nov. 12 on accusations of money laundering and misusing a special fund during his eight years in office. His term ended in May.
