This case has dragged on and on since the protests of the summer of 2006. Finally today, Chen Shui Bien was formally indicted and arrested.

It seems that Chen has already managed to find a way to delay the proceedings further. Even his wife has managed her own medical condition.

It’s hard to believe that he was injured at all, but what is evident: he will still be tried for three crimes, including corruption, withholding evidence.

Several news reports are saying that he was ‘injured’ but the circumstances are unclear. Who knows?
