Taipei Councilor to Sue over Parking Fine Incident 徐巧芯遭爆違停不開單 信義分局稱是誤傳

Taipei City Councilor Hsu Chiao-hsin is embroiled in an illegal parking controversy after she is rumored to exert pressure on a police officer, who eventually left without issuing a ticket. Both Hsu and the police have denied such reports.


Taipei City Councilor Hsu Chiao-hsin apologizes to the public for parking illegally. However, she says the rumors of her pressuring the police not to fine her are false and she will sue the person that spread the rumor.

Hsu Chiao-hsin, Taipei City Councilor (KMT): “I told the officer I was Hsu Chiao-hsin, and this is my car. I did not say I was a city councilor or anything like that. Why would I declare that? It was the officer that asked for my ID first.”

Hsu says she told the officer several times to go ahead and write up the fine, but some people insist she must not have used a nice tone of voice and intimidated the officer into not fining her. Hsu says tone of voice is subjective and she did not try to unduly pressure the officer.

Hsu Chiao-hsin, Taipei City Councilor (KMT): “This has severely damaged my reputation and the situation has been extremely stressful. That's why I intend to sue.”

The person that started the story has already apologized, admitting they didn't research the story and spread false information without any evidence. However, Hsu says this isn't enough when her reputation has been damaged and police body cam footage showed she was telling the truth.

Hsu You-yu, Deputy Chief, Sanzhangli Police Station: “(Hsu Chiao-hsin) did initially mention that drivers are usually let off with a warning, but after that, she said it's OK, go ahead and write up the fine. At that point, the officer decided not to proceed.”

The police say the entire conservation between Hsu and the officer was very calm, and Hsu has been reissued a fine. It also says it will strengthen officer training.

 

 

 

國民黨台北市議員徐巧芯面對鏡頭再次向大眾道歉,因為紅線違停惹出爭議,更被爆出施壓員警不得開單,應該以勸說為主,但她嚴正反駁指控內容。

徐巧芯說:「我出去的時候我跟他說我是徐巧芯,然後這是我的車,但是呢我也沒有講說我是徐巧芯議員啦或什麼之類的,為什麼會表明身分是因為員警有主動先要求提供身分證件。」

徐巧芯回應,當下多次要求員警要開就開,但外界還是質疑她若語氣不佳反倒會讓警方不敢開議員罰單,她則表示,語氣各自解讀但絕對沒有施壓,而面對爆料者造謠,她也決定走法律途徑提告到底。

徐巧芯表示:「這對我造成很大的名譽的損壞,也給了我很大的壓力,所以這一方面我想我基本上,還是會提出告訴。」

儘管爆料者已經致歉,指稱查證不實誤傳訊息,但徐巧芯認為她的名譽受損更讓大眾扭曲誤解,決定不姑息。而警方檢視密錄器影像後也還原當時過程。

北市信義分局三張犁派出所副所長許佑宇表示:「(徐巧芯)有在提到說她知道是先勸導,那後來就說沒關係那還是一樣開,那我們同事就沒有做開單。」

警方表示,當下雙方態度很平和,已經補開紅單舉發,針對員警違失行為會依規定處理,加強教育訓練。但當時的密錄器畫面至今始終沒有公開,當下情況為何,對外界來說始終還是謎團。
