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.

President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) yesterday said he would honor the legislature’s decision to amend a food safety law even though it would contravene a bilateral beef trade protocol signed by Taiwan and the US in October. The president, however, was evasive about who should be held responsible for the about-face.

“The top priority at the moment is to find out how the US government will react to the legislature’s decision and minimize the damage,” Ma said at a press conference at the Presidential Office yesterday afternoon after the legislature in the morning passed an amendment to the Act Governing Food Sanitation (食品衛生管理法), banning imports of specific beef products from countries with documented cases of mad cow disease in the past decade.
