China urged to give details on detention of Taiwanese activist

Taipei, April 27 (CNA) Taiwan's government has once again expressed regret that Beijing has failed to provide any further details on the detention of Lee Ming-che, a Taiwanese human rights activist, who has been detained for 40 days in China on suspicion of endangering national security.

Chiu Chui-cheng, deputy head of the Mainland Affairs Council and its spokesman, on Thursday called on China to ensure Lee's personal safety, provide the medical assistance he needs and protect his rights.

Chiu issued the call after Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO) spokesman Ma Xiaoguang told a regular news briefing in Beijing on Wednesday that Lee's case is still being investigated and that he is currently in good health and has no medical issues.

However, Ma refused to confirm whether Lee received medicine his family sent him, if he is being detained in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province or whether he has been detained for violating the Law on Administration over the Activities of Overseas Non-government Organizations within China.

Chiu also urged Beijing to provide more details on Lee's case and to grant Lee family visitation rights through formal channels.

Lee was detained after entering Zhuhai City via Macau on March 19.

He used to work for Taiwan's ruling Democratic Progressive Party and is now a staff member at Wenshan Community College in Taipei, as well as a volunteer at the local NGO Covenants Watch.

Chinese officials have said that Lee is being investigated over matters related to national security.
