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.

Newsflash

The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT)-dominated legislature is expected to ratify the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) and amendments to related legislation as early as tomorrow after a consensus on how to review the pact was reached yesterday.

The consensus, pending confirmation at the legislature’s plenary session today, is expected to defuse the possibility of a boycott by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmakers should they be denied the right to vote on the agreement article by article.
