Does not look good.
Chocolate appealed to the Taipei High Court. Chocolate and the Taipei City Police made statements. The court did not make a ruling but noted that not issuing a ruling would not stop Chocolate’s deportation (today). The Court emphasized that even if it ruled in Chocolate’s favor he would have to leave the country.
The court asked Chocolate to speak in Mandarin, but Chocolate used an interpreter claiming that he (choc.) speaks broken Mandarin.
The police say Chocolate was reported as a missing person, had syphilis, and had sex with people while he had the disease. Because he is an entertainer, they are deporting him as a threat to good morals and a bad influence on young!
I have to go to lunch, but this a travesty! I mean, what are they gonna do, deport the whole legislative Yuan next?[/quote]
So the police can overide any judgements made against them ? Does the term “Police State” apply here ?
What exactly is his crime ? Being a missing person ? Spreading Syphilis ? Rape ? I would have no objection if he was punished for that, if he was tried and convicted, nope, his crime is to have a disease that is not contagious in normal circumstances (unlike SARS), no evidence that he had sex while infected, not even an offical complaint. A disease that he couldn’t have purposely contracted (unlikely anyway). Only foreigners are punished for having Syphilis So he is being thrown out of his family, and his home for accidentally having a non-contagious desease and for being a foreigner. Any locals, or Chen Shuibian worshippers want to comment ?
Yes, I know Chen or (Taipei Count Magistrate) Su were not personally involved in this case, but they had the power to stop this before it happens, and niether of them would be sad to see this human rights abuse on their turf (Because it doesn’t involve a Taiwanese person)
