mum Ma not so mum

When Ma says its "not convenient to say" if A-bian may face further charges that have not yet been made public, he's not helping strengthen belief in an independent judiciary.

Just why would Ma even know what prosecutors may or may not have on A-bian? The cynical answer is that he's directing political persecution of the former DPP administration -- which, given the prosecutors' determination to convict A-bian, may be at least partly true. Second, though, it could be related to things like the national security documents that A-bian took home. You know, things the president would probably notice before the media got a hold of it.
