Former U.S. attorney general urges government to heed rights of Chen Shui-bian

E-mail Print PDF

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark is in Taiwan to meet with the incarcerated former president, Chen Shui-bian. Clark is concerned about Chen's health and wants the ruling KMT to pay greater attention to Chen's legal rights. It is the fourth visit to Taiwan by Ramsey Clark, the former U.S. attorney general.

His first stop: Taipei Prison to see former President Chen Shui-bian. Clark said Chen is obviously suffering from confinement, which is never healthy. And less healthy under the circumstances but his will is strong. Support from people abroad, including me, is strong. And he will be free soon.  Clark wants Taiwan's ruling party to consider Chen's human rights.  And medical parole is one way, but he should be free of the harassment.

The novel coronavirus or NCoV, the tentative name given to a new strain of coronavirus which was first reported in the Middle East last year, may be becoming more easily transmitted between humans and doctors should be on their guard, the Department of Health said yesterday.

First discovered in a Qatari patient in Saudi Arabia last year, NCoV is a strain of virus similar to that which caused the SARS outbreak in 2003.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said the NCoV is a respiratory tract infection and has a latency period of between seven and 10 days, and causes certain SARS-like symptoms, while some cases may be accompanied by renal failure.
