Human rights activists yesterday celebrated a court decision declaring Taiwan Association for Human Rights chairman Lin Chia-fan (林佳範) not guilty of violating the Assembly and Parade Act (集會遊行法), but continued to press for the law to be amended.

Walking out of the Taipei District Court building with a smile, Lin was greeted and surrounded by his cheering supporters.
