Ko Chen-Tung after being detained for 14 days in Beijing for drugs has already been released and returned to Taiwan. Earlier he answered a Taipei Prosecutor's Office summons and provided urine and hair samples for testing. According to Taiwan media, Ko Chen-Tung's urine test results came back yesterday and he did not test positive for any drug.
According to prosecution, the hair sample test could go back half a year. It will be the key to whether Ko Chen-Tung was using drugs long term. The test results will be returned next week at the soonest. The prosecution may again call Ko Chen-Tung to court. If confirmed that Ko Chen-Tung has used marijuana, the prosecution can send him to a rehab center to observe his rehab. The longest effect observation period of rehab will be 2 months, or he may be charged for his own therapy for a year. Reportedly Ko Chen-Tung's representative lawyer has asked the prosecutor his willingness to pay for drug addiction treatment at the Cathay General Hospital, but the prosecutor has not replied. A decision will be made depending on the report.
