“In a democracy, people have the right to express their views as long as they act in a rational way. The government should give these rights its full respect,” Cheng quoted Jiang as saying.

Jiang appealed to people and civil groups planning to stage protests to abide by rules under the Assembly and Parade Act (集會遊行法) and related laws, Cheng said.

Cheng said Jiang also appealed to officials at the Ministry of the Interior and at the National Police Agency to mind their attitudes and to be more skillful when they carry out their duties to avoid unnecessary controversy.
