An advocacy group has called on President Tsai Ing-wen to address the legislature regarding a Taiwanese NGO worker detained in China.

Taiwan Democracy Watch on Friday claimed the government had done nothing in the ongoing case of Lee Ming-che. Lee is a staff member at Wenshan Community College in Taipei and a former staffer for the Democratic Progressive Party. He was detained in mid-March after crossing into mainland China from Macao. His whereabouts and condition are unknown and Chinese authorities have ignored repeated requests for information through both official and semi-official channels.

Chinese authorities have only said that Lee has been detained for “endangering national security,” though the exact nature of the charges has not been disclosed. It is suspected that Lee may have fallen foul of a new law governing the activities of overseas NGOs in China.    [FULL  STORY]
