(CNA, By Shen Peng-ta and Elizabeth Hsu)
A family of Chinese nationals that fled to Taiwan after their church in Sichuan was shut down has asked for an extension of their limited visas until they are granted asylum in the United States with the assistance of the non-governmental organization Taiwan Association for China Human Rights. The Mainland Affairs Council said that due to Taiwan’s lack of a refugee law, there are no set laws for dealing with Chinese asylum-seekers, but that the government seeks to uphold the spirit of human rights when reviewing these cases. <Accessed 2019-07-10>
