Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-Je was reportedly furious about the leakage of government information and had begun to strike back by ordering the Department of Government Ethics (DOGE) to start "anti-pinhole cameras and anti-wiretap testing". Mayor Ko expressed on May 2nd that he did not give this order but had confirmed the leakage of classified information.


Security guards are constantly stationed outside the Taipei Mayor's office on the 11th floor and keeping a close eye on the people who come in and out of the office. Taipei City Mayor Ko had complained about the leakage of classified information, where even unconfirmed decisions had been exposed. It is reportedly that Ko had asked the Department of Government Ethics (DOGE) to start "anti-pinhole cameras and anti-wiretap testing" starting this month.

Ever since I'd been elected Mayor, there has always been a leakage of classified information. So why not just be open and straightforward about it. You can ask the Department of Government Ethics (DOGE) to answer this question. I did not order them to do such thing.

Mayor Ko denied ordering the DOGE to carry out an anti-pinhole camera and anti-wiretap test. The DOGE said the open-spaced nature of the city government benefits the general publics, but it has to prevent people who use high-tech methods to steal official classified information for their own interest. Starting from 2008, the Department will coordinate with the judicial police department to carry out the test once a year. This year's test is scheduled in May.

This testing is a routine check and we will ask the key government officials if the testing is required. If he thinks such testing is necessary, we will then carry out the test. It is not a obligatory.

The DOGE also expressed that the routine test did not lead to worries of white terror in the city government and that the Mayor has to give consent before carrying out the task.The test is mainly performed for the Mayor and department heads' offices, and no wiretap devices have ever been found.
 
 
 
來到市政府11樓的市長室外,固定有駐衛警坐鎮,嚴密把關進出人員,但台北市長柯文哲曾抱怨,市府的機密不斷外洩,還未定案的決策也曾經被揭露,傳出要求政風處,這個月起進行「反針孔反竊聽檢測」作業。
 
台北市長 柯文哲表示:「自從我當市長以後,我就是,我們老是消息走漏,所以乾脆公開透明。(反竊聽?) 叫政風處出來回答吧,我又沒叫他做這件事情。」
 
柯文哲否認有要求政風處進行反針孔反竊聽作業,政風處表示,因市政府為開放性空間,便利民眾可直接洽公,為了避免有心人士利用科技手段獲取公務機密,從民國97年起,每年固定1次,協調司法警察機關辦理檢測作業。今年的時間就安排在五月。
 
台北市政風處長 沈鳳樑表示:「這個檢測是例行性的,而且是先經過問過機關首長,他有沒有需要?如果他認為有需要,才去檢測,並沒有強制性。」
 
澄清例行作業沒有引發市府白色恐怖疑慮,政風處也表示,檢測會經過首長同意,以市長辦公室和局處首長為主,過去並未檢出有竊聽裝置。
