They Met…

In one of my previous post (HERE), I guessed that the top Chinese envoy will not meet the President of Taiwan the Chief of the Special Region, so the way they address to each other won’t be a problem.

In fact, I just learnt (HERE) that they met at 11:00am today but ICRT mentioned that the meeting only lasted 5 minutes, the time to shake hands and exchange gifts.

So, can we call a 5 minutes encounter a meeting?

But concerning the main concern, it is not clear right now at posting time, how did they address each other.

Beside, it seems that according the media and witnesses who reported what they saw, the police used a heavy hand against protesters. Even the Taiwanese flag was prohibited…

Media also report massively about the arrest of several DPP members.

One case (among others) attracted my attention: Yunlin County Magistrate Su Chih-fen is into custody after a request from prosecutors for two months to facilitate probes into her alleged corruption.

I really don’t get it: judges offered to let her out (with a bail of TWD 5,000,000, roughly USD 150,000) but she refused to pay.

First question: if she could leave after paying a bail, it seems that judges did not consider it will be a problem for the investigation. So why put her in jail on the pretext that it will help the investigation?

Second question: as far as I know, they are only suspicions, no evidence at all. Normally, one is innocent until the opposite is proven. So why to put her in jail, just because suspicions?

I don’t get it… Or I am afraid that the reason is obvious…
