NPM Rejects Online Fake News 網傳移轉文物至美日 故宮駁斥假消息

Aside from the military drills, China is also stepping up its online information war on Taiwan. 


The headline said that Taiwanese authorities were planning to transfer National Palace Museum's cultural relics overseas and also scolded President Tsai Ing-wen. A Chinese netizen posted on a Chinese website, saying that Taiwan has already made plans for the worst, and 90,000 selected collections from NPM will be transferred to the U.S. and Japan. However, NPM immediately refuted the news.

Huang Yung-tai, Deputy Director, National Palace Museum: “We solemnly refute such news. We have never proposed a so-called plan to move the artifacts, especially overseas. There is no such thing. All 690,000 pieces (cultural relics) are exquisite artifacts that are worthy for us to cherish.”

The situation in the Taiwan Strait has heated up. NPM, which has more than 690,000 precious cultural relics, has also attracted attention for how it evacuates in the event of war. NPM pointed out that it has held relevant drills and evacuation plans, but details cannot be shared with the public. Feng Ming-chu, NPM's former director, believes that it is safest to leave cultural relics in place.

Feng Ming-chu, Former Director, National Palace Museum: “Many issues were considered in 1965. The National Palace Museum in Taipei is located on andesite rock. So it is the safest place to be. It is best not to move the cultural relics.”

Huang Yung-tai, Deputy Director, National Palace Museum: “In the time of war, any one factor is a risk. The museum is a great location due to its environment and warehouse.”

The red background map reads "there is only one China in the world." Not only is fake news being spread about NPM, but the National Taiwan University websites of its Academic Affairs Office and Research and Development Office have also been hacked and replaced with slogans. The university is still fixing its web pages on the morning of the 8th. The PLA has recently conducted military exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan to intimidate the country with force. At the same time, it has also launched cyber-attacks. Many public and private sector websites have suffered damage. Therefore, the government, schools, and the public must all face this cognitive aggression cautiously. 

 

 

 

斗大標題,寫著台灣當局準備將故宮文物移轉到海外,還痛罵總統蔡英文。在中國的網站有人po文,指出台灣為了台海局勢做最壞打算,要從故宮館藏中,挑選9萬件精品,移轉到美國和日本,但故宮也立刻駁斥這項消息。

國立故宮博物院副院長黃永泰嚴正的聲明:「絕無此事,還沒有提出所謂的要移置的方案,尤其是移置到國外,這沒有,69萬件文物全部都是精品,每件都是值得我們國人來珍惜的。」

台海局勢升溫,讓擁有69萬多件珍貴文物的故宮博物院,遇到戰爭時該如何撤離,也備受關注,故宮指出有舉行相關的演練疏散計畫,但細節牽涉文物安全,因此無法對外說明。而故宮博物院前院長、馮明珠則認為,文物留在原地最安全。

國立故宮博物院前院長馮明珠說:「1965年時期,很多問題都考慮過,台北故宮也座落在安山岩盤上面,所以它是最安全的,文物不要動最好。」

國立故宮博物院副院長黃永泰表示:「在戰爭的時候,任何一個因素都是一個風險,基本上在環境上,或是庫房,這都是一個絕佳的地點。」

紅色底圖,寫這「世界上只有一個中國」,現在不只故宮被傳假消息,台大的教務處和研發處網站也被駭客入侵、換上標語,直到8日上午,校方都還在進行網頁修復。近期,中國共軍在台海周邊海域軍演,以武力恫嚇台灣同時,也發動網路攻擊,許多公、私部門網站都受害,也因此從政府、學校到民間,都必須審慎面對這場來勢洶洶的資訊戰考驗。
