Suspecting false surgical documentation made by surgeon, the Commission transferred case to the Taipei District Prosecutors Office
A plastic surgeon in Taipei City used an unproven silicone gel for breast implant on a patient and was accused of violating the Physician Act by the Department of Health of Taipei City Government. He then filed an appeal to the Administrative Appeals Commission of the Taipei City Government but was dismissed after review, and the Commission transferred the case to the Taipei Distric Prosecutors Office for suspicion of violating the Criminal Code in which the surgeon made a false surgical documentation. The Taiwan High Court then rendered a sentenced of six months imprisonment to the surgeon.
