A guilty verdict to scorn

Prior to the onslaught of Typhoon Morakot, one name in the Cabinet stood above all others as a ripe candidate for removal in any reshuffle: Minister of Justice Wang Ching-feng (王清峰).

Wang, who has presided over and contributed to a punishing loss of confidence in the impartiality of the nation’s judicial system, survived this week’s reshuffle after lying low for some months. Her case was helped by not having a major role to play in the government’s diabolical response to the typhoon.

Former President Chen Shui-bian’s Plea of Not Guilty Outside the Court

Abstract 

On September 11, 2009, the Court of Judge Tsai Shou-hsun will give its verdict in the case of Taiwan versus Chen Shui-bian as regards charges of corruption, money-laundering, and misuse of state funds. 

When that verdict is given, the media and the public will be presented with simply that, a resulting verdict; they will not see the reasons, methods and machinations, proper or improper, by which the prosecutors and judge worked to achieve that end, nor will they see the defendant’s side of the story.

Unintentional sobriety

Since he came to office in May last year, President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) pro-China policies have become so transparent that a US-based satirical magazine was prompted to compare cross-strait relations to courtship, with Ma “wooing China.”

Deaflympic hubris — courtesy of the Ma team

During a flag-presentation ceremony for the 21st Summer Deaflympics on Wednesday last week, President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) said that during his term as Taipei mayor, Olympic medalist Chi Cheng (紀政) called to ask if he was willing to launch a bid to host the Deaflympics. Ma said he agreed on the spot.

This remark betrays Ma’s tendency to lie and spuriously claim credit for himself.

Behold China’s network in Taiwan

When asked to explain the nature of pro-China forces in Taiwan, I like to describe it as a network.

This network is different from a centralized command system in which everyone acts according to the same orders.

Denied a Fair Trial and Imprisoned by "Judge Shopping" and Other Abuses Chen Presents His Case Outside the Court

What follows is a summary and foreword to the arguments of Chen Shui-bian's defense team. It is presented to the people outside the court since Chen's team feel that the court was compromised long ago when it went "judge shopping" in order to find a judge that would imprison Chen though he was only indicted and the trial had not yet begun. Similarly by insisting that they be allowed to tape and listen in to all conversations with his lawyers and anyone else, the prosecutors denied him any chance to present a decent defense. We (Chen Shui-bian's defense team) firmly believe that:

Newsflash

The US has expressed concern over the navy’s accidental launch of a missile into the Taiwan Strait on Friday last week and offered to provide technical assistance to help determine the cause of the incident, Minister of Foreign Affairs David Lee (李大維) said yesterday.

Lee made the comments on the sidelines of a meeting of the legislature’s Foreign Affairs and National Defense Committee, which was held to review President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) achievements during her first state visit to the nation’s diplomatic allies in Latin America.
