The Bottom Line...

Recently there are some new development in Chen's case, both from KMT and DPP side.

I have some personal feeling etc, and I am sure a lot of people do as well. However, personal feeling in this case are complicated, contradictory and hard to express. And everyone is a bit it is probably not worth to spill it all over the place.

The simple fact is this. Before, Chen's case, IMO, is not a big problem for Taiwan. But now it has become a mirror showing the sick, ugly and rotten side of Taiwan's judiciary process and system. The bottom line is, Taiwan has to face this problem and improve the system. It is not simply about Chen and politics, but about the long term development of Taiwan as a whole.

The recent DPP's petition from leaders of society and justice system is a small first step. There are a lot of follow ups. IMO, they might not have any short term effect and it might not make Chen's treatment any more fair. I am not even sure if they will have long term effect. However, some steps must be taken to get the ball rolling, to make the public aware of the problems, to start the improvement processes.
