Taiwan: A Funny Joke From The President

I read a very good joke from the Taiwanese President (?) Ma Ying-Jeou (HERE):


The ministry and the NPA must do a better job combating crime and improving police integrity. I need the two agencies to present solid results in a month and respond to public concerns


Wait, there is one more from M. Ma:


Attending birthday celebrations of a gang leader’s father, for example, is inappropriate. Police and civil servants should behave more cautiously



Few weeks ago there were the funerals of a gang leader in Taipei, with I don’t know how many luxurious cars and everything was done in public.

According the news, officials from the Taiwanese administration attended (the mayor of Taichung?) the funerals.

Did at that time M. Ma said it was inappropriate?

So, is his speech a joke or what?

And beside, There is one more related news (HERE), concerning the Tainan Prison Chief Guard Hsieh Shih-lun, who has been removed from his position.

The story is too beautiful:


Hsieh was at the residence of Taichung gangster Lin Yi-hung (林亦宏) at the time he was murdered on Oct. 17.
After receiving a DVD of the crime from an unidentified source, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Chiu Yi-ying (邱議瑩) made it public at a press conference on Tuesday.
In the video, Hsieh is seen walking into Lin’s residence about six minutes prior to the crime. Two gunmen suddenly enter Lin’s residence and begin shooting at him. Footage shows Hsieh hiding behind a sofa. After the two gunmen leave, Hsieh checks on Lin and then leaves without calling police or an ambulance

[…] (By the way, who made the DVD?)

So what do you think about M. Ma announcement especially after everyone knows (see the news) that politics in Taiwan is linked with the mafia and even some mafia members are elected (HERE and HERE)?

A beautiful joke isn’t it?


Maybe it was not a joke at all but it was like the story parents used to tell to their kids before they go to sleep.

Taiwanese, sleep peacefully…

Taiwan: Pirates Attacked a Fishing Vessel. Why?

Somali pirates have hijacked a Taiwanese fishing vessel and a British cargo ship, according news (HERE).

The Taiwanese ship MV Win Far 161 was seized near an island in the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.

The hijacking of the Taiwanese ship is the latest in a series of attacks in the Indian Ocean.

Analysts say the pirates have moved many of their operations out of the Gulf of Aden, which is heavily patrolled by naval warships from countries as diverse as China, the United States, France and India.

Instead, they are attacking off the east African coast, targeting ships coming out of the Mozambican channel.

That is quite far away from their base. Have a look:


Obviously, pirates succeeded to extend their support…

I am just wondering why Somali pirates are interested by a simple Taiwanese fishing vessel…

A cargo, I could understand.

But a fishing boat?

No way to expect a multi-million-dollar ransom.

So why?

Please my readers, don’t tell me that China asked them to do it! (I know… Bad joke)

China Denied Using Torture

The Chinese Foreign Ministry rejected a UN panel’s report alleging that police in China used torture, calling the accusations “untrue and slanderous” and saying some panel members were prejudiced against Beijing…”

The today news in Taipei Times mentioned a report published last week by a panel of the U.N.

The UN report alleged the use of torture and violence in police custody in present and past incidents.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Qin Gang said that members of this panel were “prejudiced” (sic) against China…

Just have a look on this picture:


Chinese police kick a protester after rioters burned and smashed local government buildings and destroyed vehicles in Longnan, Gansu Province, on Wednesday. Police arrested 30 people during two days of protests that erupted after homes were demolished to make way for a new government building.

So of course, we can notice that there are no reasons to believe Chinese police is violent.

… And thus, the report from the UN panel must be considered as an evil oriented document against the poor and noble China.
