Lee Ching-yu (李凈瑜), however, said she is still on the waiting list because all the flights to Yueyang, Hunan province are fully booked, adding that she will seek the assistance of the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) if necessary.

Lee also said that former Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Wang Li-ping (王麗萍) will accompany her on the trip.

Lee Ming-che went missing after entering China via Macao on March 19 and was later confirmed to have been detained by the Chinese authorities.    [FULL  STORY]
