As the DPP prepares a petition drive to "free Chen Shui-bian" from his detention, a tremendous blow is dealt to Chen's case; his daughter Chen Shing-yu (陳幸妤) and son-in-law Chao Chien-ming (趙建銘) plead guilty hours ago in court to perjury, according to lawyers. Apparently son Chen Chih-chung (陳致中) also admitted guilt today.

Chen Shing-yu was, as always, hounded by reporters and she apparently even somehow took an umbrella to the face. She came with a group of body guards who ended up getting into a shoving match with the media, since I'm sure everyone wanted a camera very close to her face. You can see the very unflattering picture TVBS submitted on the right here.

In any case, I imagine this development is really going to put this circus of a case on the fast track to completion. So far they are apparently only pleading guilty without providing more details like which parts of their statements were false; we'll see what happens.

What a nightmare.
