MAC Defends Deportation of Chinese Scholar
Posted on 2019-04-15 17:06:14
The Mainland Affairs Council is defending the deportation of a Chinese
scholar.

The MAC says in Taiwan it is illegal to advocate war, therefore, the
government was justified in deporting scholar who has promoted the use of
force to unite Taiwan with China.

The MAC deputy minister says, "If the government failed to do so, it would
have been negligent in its duty."

He is citing the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which
was adopted by Taiwan as domestic law in 2009 and states that "any propaganda
for war shall be prohibited by law."

The National Immigration Agency says Scholar Li Yi would also have breached
the terms of his tourist entry permit if he had given a scheduled public
speech at a pro-unification rally in Taichung on Saturday, which was
eventually canceled.

Li was deported last Friday, three days after his arrival in Taiwan on a
tourist entry permit.
