Taiwan Ex-President Chen Shui-bian’s detention


Both Michael and Jerome Keating have written about the injustice in Chen Sui-bian’s detention. Today, the Detention Centre illegally confiscated Chen’s handheld TV and radio as a penalty for quietly going on another hunger strike. He did not make any noise or create any havoc in the detention centre and yet he’s not allowed visitation once and is banned from any outdoor activities for 3 days. During the DPP legislators’ visit yesterday, Chen was not allowed to talk to them face to face.

So under the Ma regime, one’s not even allowed to protest against the injustice in his trial in any way.

    Claudia Jean, I just tried the Liberty Times link, and it didn’t work.

    Is this the same piece?

      Hi Tim,
      Thanks for letting me know about this. The link I used was in 即時新聞. Liberty Times must have re-edited it and taken the original post down. I’ll update my post accordingly.
