Home care better for Chen: Veterans hospital chief

By Chris Wang  /  Staff reporter

US Representative Robert Andrews of New Jersey has also written a letter to the US Department of State expressing his concern over the prison conditions and medical care for Chen Shui-bian, said Lin, who is visiting Taiwan in a private capacity.

Lin, a Taiwanese-American, led a medical team of US-based experts on a trip to Taiwan in June last year and concluded that the former president’s confinement in prison was “unacceptable” and had affected his physical and mental health. The team later submitted its findings to the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission.
