[Story] Lin Shui-chuan

A court sentencing document hand copied in prison by a political inmate. This was in the 1950s, when many political prisoners did not receive their official court document. While in the New Life Correction Center, prisoners called on for delivery service would etch the text into a metal plate, and then the prisoner involved in the case would hide the printed result. Caught up in the 1964 National Youth Solidatity Promotion Association Case, Lin Shui-chuan, having failed to receive his sentencing document, copied it down in densely packed characters.
