Taiwan Democracy Watch yesterday called on President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) to present a report on China’s detention of human rights advocate Lee Ming-che (李明哲) to the Legislative Yuan.

The group issued a statement listing six demands, including that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) should offer assistance to Lee, who has been held for 27 days as of yesterday.

It also demanded that the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) and the Ministry of Education investigate whether Lee Chun-min (李俊敏) — a Taiwanese who said he could help Lee Ming-che’s wife, Lee Ching-yu (李凈瑜), gather information about his arrest — violated the Act Governing Relations Between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area (兩岸人民關係條例).   [FULL  STORY]
