Lee Ming -Che, a Taiwanese citizen has been sentenced by a Beijing court to 5 years, while on a visit to China. His only crime is to post a blog and engage in online conversation. This is a blatent move by China to shut up any kind of free discussion and also send a strong message: Taiwan you belong to us, your ‘citizen’ is Chinese under Chinese control.
He has already been forced to ‘confess’ on video, under standard prison torture and abuse in that barbaric system.
Pope Francis enters the toxic mix of narrow minded greed and nationalism that lie at the core of today’s Myanmar. Even using the word Rohingya is likely to incur an extreme reaction from Buddhists, who will see the term as offensive and inflammatory. 600,000 flee from rape, burnings, torture and murder. They are ROHINGYA people who have lived in that area for generations.
