5 Hong Kong Protesters Seized by Taiwan Gov't|媒體人鐘聖雄稱助5港人來台 卻遭政府扣人


Media personality Chong Sheng-hsiung claimed that he helped bring five protestors from Hong Kong to Taiwan, and has criticized the Taiwanese government for having detained them. The Mainland Affairs Council neither denied nor confirmed the situation, however Premier Su Tseng-chang said that providing tangible assistance to these HonKongers is the top priority.


Media personality Chong Sheng-hsiung claimed, in a Facebook post, that he helped to bring five protestors from Hong Kong to Taiwan, and has since criticized the ruling DPP for having detained them.

Chong's statement has attracted much attention. The Mainland Affairs Council has neither confirmed nor denied the situation. And Premier Su Tseng-chang said that the top priority is to provide tangible assistance.

People from all walks of life have different opinions on the matter. I believe they all feel similarly. And I cannot disclose anything regarding providing assistance to these Hong Kong protesters. I hope we can all agree that the top priority is to provide tangible assistance.

Former Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said that the criminals who have fled to Taiwan have committed heavy crimes and that the Taiwan government should detain them. According to reports from Radio Television Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Security Bureau said it has never received any information from Taiwan regarding the criminals. The bureau also reportedly said that all legal institutions should engage in collaboration and has called on Taiwan not to shelter criminals from Hong Kong and return them. Last year, when the Taiwanese government called on its Hong Kong counterpart to assist with the legal proceeding on Chen Tong-kai, a Hong Kong man who admitted to have committed murder in Taiwan, the request was turned down. Taiwan-based Hong Kong professor Leung Man-to said that Hong Kong and Taiwan have not established any collaborative legal mechanism and the two sides should work on the matter.

The problem is that there is no collaborative legal mechanism between Taiwan and Hong Kong. Taiwan has never had a mechanism, like its so-called "political asylum" that the five people in question are currently in Taiwan. Taiwan really hasn't actively engaged in anything to help Hong Kong deal with them.

Taiwan's government has claimed that it will support Hong Kong and the government accepts those who come to Taiwan through legal venues. Chong Sheng-hsiung's latest statement has indirectly proved that the some Hongkongers could come to Taiwan through under-the-counter venues. After the Hong Kong national security law was put in place, some in Hong Kong have called on people not to share, respond or comment on people who try to flee the area or it could cause unnecessary troubles.



媒體人鐘聖雄在臉書公開宣稱,自己是幫5位香港反送中抗爭者來台灣的主要協助者,還批評民進黨政府扣留他們。引發各界高度關注,陸委會對此抱持不承認也不否認的態度,行政院長蘇貞昌則強調,給予實質幫助最重要。

行政院長 蘇貞昌表示:「各界有不同的意見,相信都是同樣這個心情,我們對於港人的幫忙,有些個案,我們也不能透露。就是希望,大家都秉持,希望能給予最實質的幫助,最重要。」

香港前特首梁振英表示,畏罪潛逃台灣的人,涉嫌犯的不是一般的罪行,人即使潛逃到了台灣,台灣當局也要把這類人關起來。根據香港電台報導指出,香港保安局對此回應表示,沒有收到關於台灣方面,截獲逃犯的任何信息,但又說,各負責任的司法管轄區,應該互相合作,呼籲不要窩藏任何在香港涉嫌犯案的人,並將他們送回。但對比先前,台灣曾要求港府,將涉嫌在台殺人的港人陳同佳提供司法互助,卻被港府拒絕。在台香港學者梁文韜認為,台港本來就沒有司法互助,台灣政府協助港人機制,應該更加強。

成大政治系教授 梁文韜表示:「現在問題,兩邊沒有司法互助,他提出根本沒有意義。因為台灣一直沒有這個機制,可以有"政治庇護"的機制嘛,所以才會發生這種的事情。面對這個情況,沒有比較積極去幫香港 是真的。」

台灣政府喊說要撐香港,從正常管道來台的,合法沒問題,但有沒有檯面下的管道,經由媒體人鐘聖雄的披露,則間接被證實。在港版國安法的威脅下,香港邊城青年三點呼籲,不轉發、不回應、不留言,因為任何指認港人逃亡的描述,都會為留在本地的港人,造成不必要危險。
