The KMT's Calculated Deflection: the Unjust and Unconstitutional Trial of Chen Shui-bian

The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) is seen by many as the proverbial beggar who came and took over Taiwan's Temple. They came as a colonial power, destroyed the island's economy to support their losing war effort in China, and finally retreated back to the island to grab the positions of power, property and wealth as their own. It is in this context and with this perspective that the charade of the corruption trial of Taiwan former president, Chen Shui-bian needs to be seen. In that trial, the evidence mounts and mounts not as regards Chen's guilt, which has yet to be proven but towards the double standard of justice in Taiwan. That double standard has always been a characteristic of the KMT from its Martial Law days on. Chen's greatest fault remains that he is Taiwanese and he stood up to the KMT; he not only stood up to them but worse than that he used the corrupt system that had been installed by the beggar in the temple for his own and not for their profit.

Cross-strait rules that may harm the public

After a consensus in the third meeting between Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) Chairman Chiang Pin-kung and China’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait (ARATS) Chairman Chen Yunlin, the Ministry of Economic Affairs announced on June 30 that Chinese investment would be allowed in Taiwan.

This violates both the Constitution and the Act Governing Relations between the Peoples of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area and could damage national security and infringe on the rights of Taiwanese.

The shame of restoring a memorial to a killer

Five days before the administration of President Ma Ying-jeou abruptly changed the name of National Taiwan Democracy Memorial Hall back to “Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall,” the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) held a ceremony in memory of the victims of the 228 Incident and the White Terror at Liberty Square in front of the edifice to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the lifting of martial law.

A true experience of White Terror

At about 9pm on July 14, my wife received a phone call from the local section chief of the Investigation Bureau of the Ministry of Justice. He said there would be a report on the alleged arrival of pro-­Xinjiang independence activists in Taiwan in Next Magazine magazine the following day and that according to information obtained from the bureau’s Kaohsiung office, the activists were in some way connected to me. The man first requested to visit us at home and then said he was already downstairs.

Thanks for nothing, Mr Ma

President Ma Ying-jeou is the most pretentious of all presidents in the world. It is clear that he has no interest in Taiwan’s sovereignty, as he has shown throughout the preparations for the World Games. He showed no interest until he decided to attend the Games two days before the opening ceremony.

Sovereignty is what we could find in the opening ceremony of the Games through its amazing performances that all related to Taiwan’s culture.

Newsflash

Following the demonstration outside its office on Friday, the Zhongzheng First Police Precinct yesterday said it resolved after a meeting that the Alliance of Referendum for Taiwan (ART) would again be allowed to assemble on Jinan Road, as it has been doing for the past five years.

More than 1,000 people gathered outside the precinct office on Friday night to protest against Precinct Chief Fang Yang-ning (方仰寧) reneging on his pledge, made in the early hours of Friday morning, to not disperse protesters from the square outside the Legislative Yuan, the venue where the ART had organized talks during the occupation of Legislative Yuan and continued to do so after the Sunflower Movement’s exit on Thursday.
