Taiwan Maritime Commission reports on the reasons why China's "Three Nos" speedboat capsized in Jinxia waters

The incident of a Chinese "Three Nos" speedboat capsized in the Jinxia waters continues to unfold. On Monday this week, Taiwan's Legislative Yuan Internal Affairs Committee held a special report meeting on this issue, and Taiwan's Coast Guard announced for the first time the complete cause of the capsize of the Chinese speedboat.

On Monday, the name of the report submitted by the Maritime Commission to the Legislative Yuan was changed to "The case of banning mainland speedboat accidents on February 14, 113 (Republic of China)". This move triggered a verbal conflict between blue and green in the Home Affairs Committee, with the opposition parties accusing the IOC of being in contempt of Congress.

Report names deadlock, opposition parties criticize for contempt of parliament

Ding Xuezhong, a KMT legislator: "You changed the title of the project report yourself."

IOC Chairman Guan Biling said: "This report was submitted to me by the Coast Guard, and I did not tamper with it. I support the Coast Guard changing the title in this way, because they cannot accept it."

Ding Xuezhong: "This is the Coast Guard taking responsibility for you."

Guan Biling: "This is a clampdown incident. They are not going to hit people, so this is not a collision incident. I make everything public and I am willing to be blamed."

Kuomintang legislator Zhang Zhilun: "If you don't apologize, you will set a bad example."

Guan Biling: "The position of the Coast Guard must be defended. The committee members and I sincerely ask everyone to support the Coast Guard and support us in changing the name."

However, Gao Jin Sumei, a member of the convening committee who presided over the meeting and has no party membership, emphasized: "The Home Affairs Committee did not accept the name change of the Coast Guard. We have read out the name of today's project report."

The Coast Guard's refusal to make a decision "capsizes the ship" and affects cross-strait negotiations

Among the three ministries and committees that submitted inquiries, Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense report still uses the name "Capsized Ship" from the Home Affairs Committee, while the Mainland Affairs Council, which is in charge of cross-strait affairs, omits the name. Only the Maritime Affairs Commission insists on refusing to use the name "Capsized Ship". “Tone-setting event.

DPP Legislator Su Qiaohui: "The change in the name of the report was suggested by the Coast Guard. Does this have any impact on the negotiations between the two parties?"

Coast Patrol Director Zhou Meiwu: "We believe this is a single law enforcement incident, and we are clamping down on it illegally."

Su Qiaohui: "Does this name have any impact on the negotiations? As far as I know, you have negotiated 14 times now, and you are just struggling with the name."

Zhou Meiwu: "You are very right. This will be about the attribution of responsibility. If Taiwan calls it a 'collision' or a 'collision,' the tone of 'collision' will be the same as what China is saying now."

The coast guard blamed three main reasons: "Three Nos": the ship turned right at high speed, uneven weight, and the captain drove without a license

On February 14, when Taiwan's Coast Guard enforced the law in the Jinxia waters to seize the Chinese "Three No Ships" with no ship name, no ship certificate, and no registration at the port of registry, the speedboat capsized and two people died. However, during the crackdown, law enforcement officers did not videotape, and the Coast Guard’s several press conferences or press releases either included incorrect dates or had doubts about the process, which led to opposition party legislators repeatedly questioning whether the department had the so-called Information is "hidden".

After being questioned by many legislators, Taiwan's Coast Guard Administrator Zhou Meiwu gave a complete account of the incident for the first time and revealed the main cause of the capsizing. He showed several photos of the capsized ship at the venue and pointed out that first of all, the switch of the capsized ship was turned on, the steering wheel was turned to the right full rudder, and it turned all the way to the right, that is, turning right at high speed: "Secondly, the configuration of this flat-bottomed speedboat There is a problem with the weight. It has two very heavy 400-horsepower outboard motors at the rear end, which are usually tilted. In addition, its net collecting machine is on the right side and will tilt to the right at high speeds; thirdly, the captain only drives less than 10 This is my second boat. I just bought this boat in January and I can’t operate it without a license.”

Coast Guard: Radar track map can restore the truth

"How is it possible that we don't have radar tracks and images?" Zhou Meiwu said in reply to the question that these information have been handed over for inspection and investigation, and it is not as China falsely accused that the illegal ship was parked there but was hit by a coast guard ship at high speed. He showed photos of the capsized boat, which showed that except for the obvious impact point on the port side one-sixth of the way, there were no holes in the rest of the hull. He said: "If it had hit it vertically at a high speed of 40 knots, it would have been broken into pieces. How could it be so complete?"

Zhou Meiwu said that whether it is a Taiwanese coast guard ship or a Chinese speedboat, very clear heading and speed information can be seen on the radar. Whether it is in restricted waters should be investigated by inspection. He emphasized: "If the radar data were on site, there would be public comment immediately, but it is not allowed now."

The coast patrol agency is in trouble due to non-disclosure of investigations

After hearing the information disclosed by Zhou Meiwu, Gao Jin Sumei, convener of the Home Affairs Committee, immediately criticized these details for not being presented in the project report. In an interview with the media, she said that if the project report had been complete, there would not have been the turmoil today. She said: "They have been selective in their words, lied, and kept squeezing out toothpaste, which is why this project report is scheduled today. Second, if this will affect their negotiations, they can come and explain it to me in advance. .”

Faced with pressure from legislators and public opinion, Guan Biling explained that the reason she was unwilling to talk more about the incident in the past was that during the negotiation process, if the Coast Guard revealed the facts of the case and all faults were attributed to one party, it would lead to a lack of integrity and lack of integrity in the negotiation process. respect. She said: "When I came to Congress today and there are so many doubts in the society, the Director must say that we have really endured the humiliation for a long time."
