Readers, please pay special attention to David’s newest post on human rights concern that I have wanted to complete a post on but because of some other tasks I am involved in Europe that I could not devote myself to finishing it.
The charges laid on two human rights defenders, Lin Chia-fan (林佳範), President of the Taiwan Association for Human Rights (TAHR), and Lee Ming-tsung (李明聰), Vice-Chairperson of Amnesty International (AI) Taiwan and assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at NTU, are totally unacceptable as even the Amnesty International has noted the encouraging news of Taiwan’s ratifications of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights on 31 March 2009.
How can we openly tell the international community that we Taiwan have endorsed the international covenants but in the meantime secretly prosecuting innocent people at home?Scholars in Taiwan, please speak up in defending for your colleague. Unity and solidarity give strength! 團結才是力量!
