The former director of the Taipei Academia Sinica was formally reprimanded for failing to disclose personal assets and not revealing conflicts of interests after the Civil Service Disciplinary Committee found him responsible. He was fined on three separate offenses, with one totaling 1.5 million, and two other 600,000 dollar fines, before appealing them and having them cancelled. 

The disciplinary court maintains that public officials must declare all of their assets in order to maintain public trust in institutions. His final appeal was rejected yesterday.
