Prosecutors in central Taiwan's Changhua county have indicted the first round of a dozen professors from four universities on charges of corruption for using false receipts to claim reimbursements.

The Changhua District Prosecutors Office, which indicted the 12 professors on Friday, said the professors came from four universities: National Chung Hsing University, National Yang Ming University, National Defense Medical Center and National Taichung University of Education.

Prosecutors said that they were tipped off in June 2011 that a professor surnamed Hung and an associate professor surnamed Chen at National Changhua University of Education had used false receipts to claim reimbursements from the school.

Hung and Chen took advantage of a regulation in the Government Procurement Act that stipulates procurement under NT$100,000 (US$3,444) can be carried out without an open tendering process, to collaborate with a New Taipei City company, Kuo Yang Scientific Corp., to obtain false receipts.

Investigators later searched the university and the company and found that more than 100 professors from all over Taiwan were involved in the same scam.

The prosecutors said they were "surprised" to learn that so many professors were involved. More professors are expected to be indicted in coming days.
