Human rights groups yesterday gathered at the Liberty Square in Taipei, demanding
that China immediately release Taiwanese human rights advocate Lee Ming-che (李明哲).
Lee was detained after entering Zhuhai City via Macau on March 19. He used to work for the Democratic Progressive Party and is currently a staff member at Wenshan Community College in Taipei, as well as a volunteer at the non-governmental organization Covenant Watch.
“We hope he will return soon,” Taipei Wenshan Community College president Cheng Hsiu-chuan (鄭秀娟) said.
The rally last night also sought to raise public awareness about forced disappearances.
