Judge chosen to oversee Lee case

POLITICAL GAMES:The indictment has prompted supporters of the former president to write an open letter to Washington leaders to stop the ‘political trial’

By Rich Chang and Vincent Y. Chao  /  Staff Reporters

The open letter is addressed to US President Barack Obama, US Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton and US congressional leaders.

“The indictment is political persecution pure and simple against Dr Lee ... who has been tireless in preaching the importance of protecting Taiwan’s sovereignty, freedom, democracy and human rights and in warning against selling out to China,” the letter said.
