Taichung Revokes Fine for Woman Who Gave False Info 女K歌實名制填父親手機  認疫調不實罰6千

A woman was initially fined for using a phone number under his father's name and deemed obstructing disease prevention efforts.


Presenter: Taichung City has revoked a NT$6,000 fine given to a woman who gave false registration information at a Karaoke has been revoked. The woman was part of the Karaoke cluster infection in May.

This woman tells Administrative Enforcement Agency personnel that her daughter did not mean to give false registration information. 

Mother of Ms. Tang:” We got this (cell phone number) when she was in high school. We registered the number using her father's name. So, it's been in her father's name all this time.”

In May, a cluster infection from a Karaoke gathering was reported in Taichung. One of the students, a woman surnamed Tang, visited more than one room that night. She registered at the Karaoke with a cell phone number registered under her father's name. The city fined her NT$6,000 after being unable to locate her while contact tracing.

Chou Lung-kuang, Officer, Administrative Enforcement Agency Taichung Branch:”Regardless of whether (the number) was registered to the daughter or the father, no one answered when we called. From a government standpoint, it appeared she had given false information.”

Tang's parents paid the fine even though their daughter was wronged. They say they got in touch with her after the incident and told her to go get tested. One lawyer says most contact registration uses cell phones for verification and most people feel fine that should be assessed on an individual rather than blanket basis.

Voice of Lin Chiung-chia, Lawyer:”You can find someone by calling them on their cell phone. She didn't intentionally break any laws. There is also no law saying the cell phone she uses has to be registered in her name.”

Citizen:” My mom's cell phone is registered in my name. When she goes to a supermarket and registers, she's the one going in and not me.”

The lawyer says cell phones registered to one person and being used by another doesn't cause problems with contact tracing unless someone falsifies information. The Taichung City Government has revoked the fine in question.

 

 

行政執行署人員來到湯姓女子的家中,但母親不斷解釋,女兒並非故意不配合疫調。

湯姓女子母親:「(手機號碼)是她在高二時申請的,那時只能請她爸爸的名字,所以那支手機到現在,還是她爸爸的名字呀。」

今年5月,台中爆發朝陽大學夜唱團的群聚感染,而湯姓女子在夜唱團隔天,也到同間KTV其他包廂唱歌,當時留的是登記在父親名下的手機號碼。市府後來擴大疫調,第一時間聯絡不上湯姓女子,被認為疫調不實,開罰6000元。

行政執行署台中分署行政執行官 周隆光:「(該手機)到底是湯女持有還是她爸爸持有中,從客觀事實是不明的。但是第一時間就是電話都沒人接,站在主管機關的認為說,她是不是在規避或妨礙疫調。」

湯姓女子父母雖然委屈,還是先將罰款繳清。但強調並非規避疫調,也聯繫到女兒前往快篩,已經提起訴願。有律師認為,目前實名制多是以手機進行驗證,行政單位裁罰雖然符合程序和正當性,但與實際狀況有認知差異,民眾也認為是否開罰,應該是個案狀況而定。

律師 林瓊嘉:「手機依規定都找的到人,她沒有存在故意違規行為,法律上也沒禁止她,手機必須要登記本人。」

民眾:「的確手機可能是登記我的,是給媽媽使用,可能走進商場(實名制的),不是我走進商場呀。」

律師指出,手機號碼的登記和使用不一定是同一人,如果使用者沒有偽造,回溯追蹤沒有中斷,就不該被認定規避疫調。台中市府表示,訴願委員會決議撤銷,將停止執行。
