Clark says Chen facing ‘murder’ by parole denial

By Chris Wang and Rich Chang  /  Staff reporters

The former president’s current health condition does not meet requirements for granting medical parole, Chen Ming-tang quoted Tseng as saying.

Separately yesterday, the Taipei District Court held a hearing in which the former president was accused of illegally seizing confidential government documents.

Chen Shui-bian’s lawyer, Hung Kuei-tsan (洪貴參), said his client is still suffering from breathing problems and chest pains and is unhappy and depressed.

Hung said Chen felt sick, but told the court that it was through sheer willpower that he was able to show up for the hearing because he wanted to make a statement to defend his innocence.
