He was sentenced to 8 years in 2017 without serving a prison sentence. He even participated in the event at the end of November. On December 1, the Miaoli police seized it in Zhonghe District, New Taipei City, and arrested him.

He joined the DPP in 2004 and was appointed chairman of the Taiwan Water Company in 2005. From September 2005 to September 2007, he served as chairman of the water company and received a 5 million yuan bribe from Jintang Company. He was sentenced to 8 years in prison in 2017 and was wanted by the Taichung Procuratorate in March last year. Unexpectedly, he circumvented his criminal responsibilities. On November 21, Dasao and Miaoli County government officials received the delegation.
Lai Ming, the chief of the Miao Li Police Sub-committee, said that Xu Xiangkun had a citizenship township, but he lived in northern Taiwan for a long time and rarely returned to Miaoli. When he was arrested, Xu Xiangkun looked blank, and asked, "Are you still appealing?" Finally he was handcuffed to end the 20-month escape. In the evening, Xu Xiangkun was detained by the police and returned to the Miaoli Police Station. He was asked if he knew he was wanted, but he did not respond. After completing the transcript, the police sent the case to the Taichung Procuratorate for final investigation.
A person in charge said that Xu Xiangkun was very enthusiastic about politics. He originally wanted to choose the county head of Miaoli, but he later switched to the Green Camp. The position of "Ministry of Economic Affairs", even with the assistance of a certain senior executive of the "Executive Yuan", wanted to be ranked as the "secretary of the Ministry of Economic Affairs." However, at that time, because he had been questioned for ethics in the previous lawsuit, he was not promoted, but he was also promoted to be the chairman of Taishui. (China Taiwan Net Jia Ruolan)
