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.

Worried that a demolition squad may appear any time to flatten the homes of four families in Dapu (大埔), Miaoli County, rights activists and students organized patrols and discussed defense strategies on Sunday night, while politicians worked to mobilize support for the forced demolition.

Tensions were high at the normally tranquil farming village yesterday, the first working day after the deadline set by the county government for the four families to demolish their own houses on Friday last week.
