Fifteen of the group had been cleared of involvement in a telecoms scam by a Kenyan court, the foreign ministry said.
The remaining 22, who were believed to be currently aboard a Chinese plane awaiting departure, had not faced trial following their arrest Friday on similar charges, it said.
China still regards Taiwan as part of its territory awaiting reunification, by force if necessary, even though Taiwan has ruled itself since 1949.
