MAC Finalizing "Humanitarian" Plan for Hong Kong|人道救援港人 陸委會主委提四大原則

China's National People's Congress passed the Hong Kong National Security Law. In response, ROC President Tsai Ing-wen has proposed a "humanitarian rescue action" plan that is being drawn up by the Mainland Affairs Council.

Mainland Affairs Council Minister Chen Ming-tong briefed lawmakers on the 28th on a "humanitarian rescue action plan" that would grant Hong Kong citizens residency, resettlement and care in Taiwan. Chen said the plan has not yet been finalized, but is based on four principles.

First of all, the program will be directed by the government. Second, the Mainland Affairs Council will consolidate efforts with other agencies. (Third), a non-governmental organization established by the government will execute and consolidate civil and cross-agency cooperation. Fourth, the government will draw up a budget to provide funding.

Asked about President Tsai Ing-wen's Facebook post on the suspension of Article 60 of the Laws and Regulations Regarding Hong Kong and Macao Affairs, Chen said more observation and evaluation will be needed if China lowers Hong Kong's autonomy by promulgating the Hong Kong National Security Law.

Article 60 was written to remind Beijing of the value of a high degree of autonomy. This legislation reduces that value. In the future, will any policy decided by the Hong Kong government be the result of the Hong Kong government's autonomy, or the will of Beijing? This will have a certain impact on every aspect of our national security.

Chen said Taiwan's Laws and Regulations Regarding Hong Kong and Macao Affairs and Act Governing Relations between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area differ in that one is political and the other is civil, and both are needed because Taiwan views Hong Kong as a political "third territory." However, Kuomintang lawmaker Chen Yu-jen pointed out Tsai promised support for Hong Kong during the anti-extradition protests last year but never backed up her promise with actual action. Chen called on the government to stop with its lip service.

Everyone here and all of our citizens are waiting for you to finalize a plan. It won't be later than you think. It won't? I was hoping you would have the plan ready for us today since the government said it wanted to do something like this before the election. I thought the government would have had a plan to show us ages ago. That's how deep my hopes for you are.

Both the council and National Immigration Agency say the number of Hong Kong citizens applying for visas, temporary residency and permanent residency rose in 2019 because of the protests, but neither will say how many applications have actually been received.

香港版國安法,將在中國全國人大會議表決通過,台灣要如何撐香港?到立院進行專案報告的陸委會主委陳明通指出,人道救援行動方案,將對港人來台居留、安置和照顧,進行完整規劃,並有四大指導原則。

陸委會主委 陳明通表示:「第一個、政府主導;第二個、由陸委會做跨部會的整合;(第三個)由政府所成立的法人機構,來執行整合民間跨部門的公私的協立;第四個政府編列預算、挹注經費。」

有鑑於香港局勢動盪,總統蔡英文先前在臉書抛出港澳條例第60條的停止適用條款,引發議論。陳明通強調,若港版國安法實施,將降低香港的高度自治,必須密切觀察與評估。

陸委會主委 陳明通表示:「60條是提醒北京高度自治的含金量,因為這個代為立法這樣子的,它的含金量就下降,將來港府所做出的決策,是你港府基於高度自治做的?還是奉行北京的意志做的?這個本身對我們國安方方面面,有一定衝擊。」

陳明通指出,港澳條例與兩岸人民關係條例不同,差別在於,一個是關乎政治,一個是關於人民,因為我方把香港在政治上看成第三地。但國民黨立委陳玉珍在質詢時,質疑從去年的反送中事件,蔡總統就說要撐香港,卻沒有具體作為,認為政府不應該口惠而實不至。

陸委會主委 陳明通 vs. 國民黨立委 陳玉珍表示:「(在座的各位,還有我們全國的人民,都在期待你趕快提出的方案。) 不會比你想像的晚。(不會嗎?我本來期待,你今天就會提出來,因為你們在選舉之前,就想這件事情,我想你們早就做好規劃,我對你的期待是如此的深。」

也因為反送中事件,2019年申請來台停留、居留以及定居的香港人數,都比前一年明顯成長,具體已經有多少人申請?陸委會與移民署都不願透露。
