Lee Ching-yu (李淨瑜), the wife of detained human rights advocate Lee Ming-che (李明
哲), said remarks by China’s Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO) substantiated an accusation that Beijing has its compradors in the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT), after the office yesterday confirmed that it had commissioned a third party to “relate the relevant situation” to Lee Ching-yu and pass letters from Lee Ming-che to her and his parents, while warning other groups not to intervene in the case.
Outside intervention would complicate matters and harm already tense relations between Taipei and Beijing, the office said.
TAO spokesman An Fengshan (安峰山) said that China had passed letters from Lee Ming-che, who is under investigation for endangering China’s national security, to his wife and parents. [FULL STORY]
