Calling President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) a human rights violator who had no right to talk about human rights, dozens of former political prisoners yesterday protested as the president delivered a speech at the Jingmei Human Rights Cultural Park as part of events to mark International Human Rights Day.

“You’re a transgressor!” “Ma Ying-jeou, step down!” “You don’t deserve to stand there and talk!” “We don’t want to listen to your lies!” the protesters shouted.
