ZHUHAI, Guangdong, May 14 -- A total of 32 Taiwanese fraudsters currently detained on the Chinese mainland have confessed to their crimes, said the Ministry of Public Security here Saturday.

The 65 mainland suspects and 32 Taiwanese suspects, deported together from Malaysia to the mainland on April 30, belonged to five criminal syndicates, said a ministry statement issued after mainland police and a delegation of judicial officials from Taiwan wrapped up a three-day meeting in the southern city of Zhuhai.

They were part of the 117 suspects detained in Malaysia for more than 100 telecom fraud cases. The other 20 Taiwanese had been sent back to Taiwan earlier.

The suspects are held at two detention centers in Zhuhai.

The police have treated the suspects equally and ensured their legal rights according to law, the statement said.

The Taiwanese were informed of their rights before the first interrogation, including the right to hire a lawyer, the statement said.

According to an earlier statement, most of the Taiwanese are in good health, except a few having skin infection and two showing symptoms of unstable blood pressure, which, however, is under control after proper treatment. Only one who has suffered hernia for eight years has been hospitalized but in stable conditions.

At Saturday's meeting, the mainland police agreed to arrange their families to visit as soon as possible.
