Taiwan, Democracy, and the Rule of Law
Recorded on November 25, 2008
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
Taiwan's democracy is a proud achievement. Among the more
serious challenges in its continuing development are legitimate
questions regarding due process and appropriate judicial
procedure. Joining us for a discussion of these issues is
someone who literally is a rocket scientist, Ching Jyh Shieh.
Dr. Shieh lived through a two-year process of detention, trial, and
eventual acquittal on July 30 this year. His personal
experience sheds light on the seriousness of the problem, its
context and what can be done to fix it.
