FAHR Supports People Revolution
by Taiwanese Rescue-Abian Volunteers
Formosan Association for Human Rights (FAHR) supports the people revolution by the Taiwanese Rescue-Abian Volunteers, led by Prof. Tsay Ting-Kuei of Alliance of Referendum to Safe Guard Taiwan and Rev. Cheng Kuo-Chung, pastor of Taiwan Justice Action Church. Since November 3, they have started a 36-day march by foot around the Taiwan island, chanting the slogans of "Save Taiwan, Save judicial System, and Save ABian".
The “Abian case” is not an ordinary judicial case, but a political persecution through malicious and premeditated acts. Over the last four years, this political persecution went through stages of custody, sentencing, and imprisonment, mared by many illegal judicial procedures, including extended custody without charges, illegal judge replacement with someone willing to be a hitman for the govenment, and most absurd of all, the only guilty verdict being based on perjury by a coerced witness. With a close examination of the Abian case, one will find that it is covered by the fingerprints of "judicial dictatorship", which aims at suppressing political dissidents and has caused a serious setback to the democratic development of Taiwan society.
FAHR has sponsored international human rights organizations and activists this year to visit Taiwan over the concern of President Chen’s human rights. They openly asked Ma Ying-jeou to release President Chen on medical parole. We continue to call on all brave and justice-minded Taiwanese to take action and occupy Ketagalan Blvd to demonstrate people’s power and demand the abolishment of judicial dictatorship and the release of President Chen Shui-Bian. We support the action by the Taiwanese Rescue-Abian Volunteers and supporters to occupy Ketagalan Blvd, starting December 8, and to take up non-violent disobedient actions indefinitely to cultivate people’s will.
We support the following calls of the Taiwanese Rescue-Abian Volunteers and supporters:
1. An immediate release of President Chen Shui-Bian.
2. Resignation of Tseng Yung-fu and Huang Shi-ming.
3. Replacing prosecutors of the Special Investigative Unit.
4. Enacting the jury system.
