The wife of Taiwan's jailed ex-president Chen Shui-bian said Thursday that her husband is sick and should be hospitalised rather than being treated in prison where he is serving time for graft. Wu Shu-chen, who uses a wheelchair, made the remarks after visiting Chen, who was jailed for 17-and-a-half years on two bribery convictions in a prosecution that saw her handed the same sentence. "He looks tired and has digestive disorders these days," Wu, who has been paralysed from the waist down since a car accident 28 years ago, told reporters. The 59-year-old, who has been spared prison because of poor health, said she was especially worried by the lung cancer records of his family members.
