Nhà hoạt động Trung Quốc cắm trại tại sân bay ở Đài Loan để xin tị nạn

hơn một tuần rồi,

nhưng có lẽ phải đợi lâu đấy, và không biết số phận ra sao,

đài loan không có luật tị nạn chính trị, và cũng tính toán nhiều yếu tố phức tạp, không muốn căng thẳng với đại lục khi trở thành nơi trú ẩn cho (nhiều) nhà hoạt động china...
Chen Siming, an activist who fled China (nhà hoạt động trốn khỏi Trung Quốc), has been camped out at an airport in Taiwan for nearly a week, hoping to gain asylum (tị nạn) in the West. He is willing to wait for much longer, as long as he is not forced to board a plane back to China.

Mr. Chen, 60, is among a wave of activists and human rights defenders who have recently attempted bold and hazardous escapes (trốn thoát một cách táo bạo và nguy hiểm) from the country as a crackdown on civil society has widened.

Mr. Chen’s predicament (tình trạng khó khăn) in Taiwan is unusual. While the self-ruled island is an attractive refuge (nơi ẩn náu hấp dẫn) for people fleeing Chinese state oppression, it is also wary of raising tensions with Beijing by accepting too many critics of its Communist Party.

...Under Mr. Xi, China’s most iron-fisted leader in decades (nhà lãnh đạo có quyền lực tàn nhẫn nhất trong nhiều thập kỉ), the authorities have offered bounties (tiền thưởng) for critics who have fled overseas, and secured the detention (giam giữ) or deportation (trục xuất) of exiles (người lưu vong) passing through neighboring countries.

...dissidents like Mr. Chen live in a state of limbo because Taiwan does not have refugee and political asylum laws. The government must deal with asylum applications on a case-by-case basis, Mr. Tseng said.

Taiwan is also wary of further inflaming tensions (căng thẳng gia tăng) with China.

“They’re trying to balance a lot of complicated factors. They don’t want to raise tensions with the mainland if more and more activists are trying to make it to Taiwan,” said Thomas E. Kellogg, the executive director of the Center for Asian Law at Georgetown University.
