Washington-based group slams opposition arrests

WHITE TERROR REDUX? FAPA asked the US to speak up in response to the ‘deterioration of human rights and democracy in Taiwan’ after recent detentions

By Charles Snyder  /  STAFF REPORTER IN WASHINGTON

The Kaohsiung Incident, also known as the Formosa Incident, was an anti-government demonstration organized by Formosa Magazine on Dec. 10, 1979. The event turned into a violent confrontation, and as a result, Lu and seven other pro-democracy activists were arrested by the former KMT government.

Lu said recent developments in the allegations against former president Chen Shui-bian and his former aides were “unbelievable” to her, adding it was difficult for her to believe that what the prosecutors have said was all true.
