broken into a server in Taiwan (unless information of working through
Taiwanese authorities, or that someone else has done this for Google,
becomes available)."

So... you're taking incomplete information hyped up by "tech"
reporters operating based on leaks from people tangential to an
investigation as fact, and deciding that if Google doesn't tell you
the details of an ongoing criminal investigation that you'll assume
they broke the law.
