Firefighter Who Released Recording Surrenders to Authorities 恩恩案錄音檔外流 新北消防局:該同仁自首

Clara Chou, a media personality, released the audio recording of New Taipei City Fire Department contacting Shuang Ho Hospital, confirming that the Fire Department could not get in contact the New Taipei City Health Department. The whistle blower firefighter who released the recording surrendered to the New Taipei City Prosecutors Office on the 19th.


A 2-year-old boy, Enen, died of COVID-19. Clara Chou, a journalist, and media personality, recently released a recording between New Taipei City Fire Department and Shuang Ho Hospital. It confirmed that the Fire Department called Shuang Ho Hospital directly asking if Enen could be admitted because it could not get in contact with the Health Department or New Taipei's public health centers. Controversy arose after the recording was broadcasted on a political talk show. The firefighter went to the New Taipei District Prosecutors Office on his own on the evening of the 19th to surrender.

Lin Shih-ming, Secretary, New Taipei City Fire Department: “After the recording was broadcasted, it violated privacy concerns and disturbed other fire department colleagues. The regretful colleague said that the recording should've been kept private. He turned himself in because he handed it over to a public person.”

The firefighter said that it was Cho Kuan-ting, a candidate for New Taipei City councilor and a high school classmate that contacted him for inquiries at the end of April. In response, Cho posted on Facebook angrily scolding the New Taipei Government for going after whistleblowers. He emphasized that he did not provide audio files to the media.

Hou Yu-ih, New Taipei Mayor: “Publishing the audio files has caused trouble and harm to our front-line colleagues. This behavior is not acceptable.”

Mr. Lin, Enen's Father: “I just ask you to hurry up and provide me with these key recordings. Make a detailed list and tell me what's there before providing me with the audio files. I don't want to hear any more that you're here to help, but I don't get any help at all.”

Hou responded that he will provide relevant information to Enen's father in accordance with regulations. Everything that can be provided has been provided. 

 

 

 

2歲男童恩恩染疫病逝,媒體人周玉蔻日前公開新北市消防局與雙和醫院的橫向錄音檔,證實消防局因連繫不上衛生局和衛生所,直接致電雙和醫院,詢問院方是否可以收治恩恩,錄音檔外流經政論節目播出後引發爭議,該名消防員19日晚間已自行前往新北地檢署自首。

新北市政府消防局秘書林世明表示:「錄音檔在媒體播出後,造成消防同仁隱私曝光和紛擾而感到相當地後悔,該同仁表示因電話檔案屬於應秘密的事項,他卻下載並交給一般民眾,才主動出面自首。」

該名消防員表示,是4月底時高中同學卓冠廷,也是新北市議員參選人主動連繫詢問,他一時思慮不周才會交付錄音檔。對此,卓冠廷在臉書發文怒斥侯市府追殺吹哨者模糊焦點,也強調並沒有提供錄音檔案給媒體。

新北市長侯友宜表示:「把橫向跟醫院消防同仁的錄音檔來公布,造成我們第1線同仁的困擾跟傷害,這種行為是不可取的。」

恩恩爸林先生說:「我只求你們趕快,把這些關鍵橫向錄音檔提供給我,同時在提供給我之前做好明細列表告訴我有哪些東西,我不想要再聽到說你們會全力協助,可是我都是沒有得到全力協助。」

侯友宜則回應,會按照規定,全力提供相關資料給恩恩爸爸,可以提供的都已經提供。
