Taipei, Oct. 30 (CNA) The debate over whether to pardon disgraced former President
Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁) has resurfaced after he was filmed taking a walk near his house in Kaohsiung and chastising the man who shot the video with his smartphone.
In a video shot on Saturday and later posted online, Chen was seen trying to stop the man, identified by some media outlets as bread vendor Huang Shi-fu (黃士福), from filming.
“What are you doing?” Chen asked angrily. “It is illegal (to do what you’re doing.) I can take you to court. I’ll do it.”
The video came less than two weeks after Huang posted a picture of Chen walking with another person near a fine arts museum in the former president’s neighborhood. Huang said he sells bread in the area and can often see Chen taking what he described as “a regular stroll.” [FULL STORY]
