Former U.S. attorney general urges government to heed rights of Chen Shui-bian

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.

Police in Beijing rounded up dozens of followers of an underground Protestant church yesterday, a rights group said, as a widening crackdown on dissent appeared to spread to religious figures.

Police late on Saturday also detained Jin Tianming (金天明), a senior pastor of Beijing’s Shouwang church, an unregistered Protestant congregation, and other church leaders, before releasing them early yesterday, the US-based China Aid group said.

Jin’s detention came after the church called for an outdoor worship meeting following a similar gathering last Sunday that resulted in police rounding up nearly 170 church followers, most of whom were later released.
