Dear Mr. Vice President Al Gore,
   Mrs. Madeleine Korbel Albright,

It is necessary for the possibility of signing a mutual judicial assistance agreement between Washington-Taipei.

The lack of a bilateral agreement to provide a legal basis often posed problems for law enforcement agencies to pursue cases in each other's country.

The conclusion of a well-designed mutual judicial assistance pact is also necessary to enable Taiwan and U.S. to increase cooperation in the battle against major cross-border crimes such as drug trafficking, money-laundering and illegal immigration.

Beijing has no reason to intervene or to block Taiwan from signing a judicial agreement with the U.S.. The communist regime, which has never ruled Taiwan, has no jurisdiction over this island and Taiwan. As a sovereign political entity, has its own judicial authority.

Taiwan wants to sign a judicial agreement with U.S. because it believes there is a need for joint efforts to fight crime. Apparently, the U.S. also sees such a need, as such, it will be unreasonable for Beijing to prevent Taipei and Washington from undertaking such important cooperation. When U.S. position referred to as the "three no's" policy, Taiwan was dropped into mess of "international isolation" by communist China. On the other hand; Taiwan still on its solid as a rock.

Recently; Taiwan tied Singapore at second place in the newly released BERI investment climate and business profit opportunity rating. The BERI (Swiss firm Business Environment Risk Intelligence) rating is based on three criteria

--- the business operations risk index.

--- the political risk index.

--- the foreign exchange payment capability.

On above reasons, we need your support.

God be with you.



Sincerely Yours,
Yang Hsu-Tung.
President of
