Taipei, Sept. 30 (CNA) A Central Police University associate professor who was suspected of acting as a spy for China was detained by prosecutors Friday.

Wu Chang-yu allegedly was working for Beijing to collect information about Chinese democratic activists, Tibet independence activists, and Falun Gong followers in Taiwan, according to an investigation by the Taipei District Prosecutors Office.

However, Wu denied the charges.

Prosecutors found that in August 2010, Wu obtained the border entry records of a Chinese dissident through the help of Lin Po-hung and Wu Tung-ling, who were then working for the Hsinchu County Police Bureau.

Wu Tung-lin was granted bail of NT$100,000, while Lin was released without bail after they were questioned by prosecutors Thursday.
