Taipei, July 28 (CNA) Tsai Ching-hsiang (蔡清祥), a career prosecutor, has been appointed as the Ministry of Justice Investigation Bureau's (MJIB) new director-general to replace Wang Chung-yi (汪忠一), an official of the ministry told CNA Thursday.

Tsai, former president of the ministry's Academy for the Judiciary, will head the MJIB, but it is not yet known when he will assume the office, Deputy Justice Minister Chen Ming-tang (陳明堂) said.

Tsai had served as deputy justice minister, chief secretary of Justice Ministry, and chief prosecutor in Kinmen, Miaoli, Keelung, Taoyuan and Shilin district prosecutors offices.

This is part of senior-ranking personnel shuffling of the ministry in recent months.

Tsai Pi-yu (蔡碧玉), former chief prosecutor of Taipei District Prosecutors Office, assumed presidency of the Academy for the Judiciary on July 18, while Hsing Tai-chao (邢泰釗), former deputy justice minister, became chief prosecutor of Taipei District Prosecutors Office that same day.
