Rights group accuses Taiwan of failing to grant political asylum to Chinese dissidents
Activists on Monday accused Taiwan of violating human rights by detaining two Chinese dissidents for months and denying them political asylum.
One of the dissidents, Yan Peng, fled to Taiwan in June after being jailed for 18 months in China on charges of sedition for supporting the 1989 democracy movement, the Taiwan Human Rights Association said in a statement.
The other detainee, Chen Rongli, fled to Taiwan in January after serving eight years in a Chinese jail for attempting to set up an opposition political party, the group said. "
