Taiwan - A Taiwanese man could be arrested if he does not pay a NT$1 million fine for a quarantine violation.

If the man does not respond, the department said it will issue an arrest warrant from the court.

A man could face jail if he does not pay a NT$1 million (US$35,000) fine for violating COVID-19 quarantine restrictions in 2020.

According to a news statement published by the Administrative Enforcement Agency's (AEA) Yilan Branch on Monday (March 7), the man surnamed Tseng () returned to Taiwan from the Philippines in July 2020, however, he failed to comply with the 14-day quarantine rule.

Tseng had left the quarantine facility for meals one or two times per day, according to the AEA's Yilan Branch, and had even stayed overnight at another location after the third day. He told Yilan County's Public Health Bureau that he left because the facility was too hot and dull for him to stay.

Due to the gravity of his violation, the public health bureau fined him NT$1 million for leaving the facility for a total of 72 hours and 45 minutes. Tseng's case was sent to the Yilan Branch when the fine became late.

After taking over the case, the department proceeded to take Tseng's property. AEA authorities implementing the seizure at the man's property encountered him during the procedure, and he stated that he was willing to settle the fine in three annual installments of NT$360,000 per year, according to the department.

Tseng, however, stopped paying after giving in NT$120,000, and he refused to appear despite receiving several hearing notices since November 2021. According to the branch, which added that it had canceled the payment agreement and issued an ultimatum requiring his appearance.
