台灣免申根簽證 歐洲議會正式通過

更新日期:2010/11/11 20:26 蕭介雲

【台灣醒報記者蕭介雲報導】台灣申請歐洲聯盟免申根簽證案獲重大進展。歐洲議會(EP)全會今天以559票贊成、40票反對、13票棄權的壓倒性多數,通過台灣免簽案,並將送司法暨內政部長理事會審查,如通過後即可經公告20日後正式生效。台北市旅行公會副理事長丁萊強調,國人未來將可省下約3千元的簽證費,再加上便利性將,至少帶動2到3成的旅遊成長。

歐洲議會全會今天表決通過後,全案將移交定12月2、3日舉行的司法暨內政部長理事會審查,一旦通過,台灣的免簽案將於歐盟公報上公告20日後生效。歐洲議會今天通過台灣免簽案,表決過程僅5分鐘。中華民國駐歐盟兼駐比利時代表林永樂,率代表處官員赴歐洲議會旁聽席全程觀察。

未來台灣民眾將可望免簽證進入歐盟22個申根公約國及挪威、瑞士、冰島、羅馬尼亞、保加利亞賽普勒斯等28國,半年內可停留90天。

爭取歐盟免申根簽證待遇案是當前台灣重大外交目標,台灣免簽案首先於10月上旬在歐洲議會外交委員會中通過,接著內政委員會於下旬更以壓倒性多數通過。

永利旅行社總經理丁萊對此表示,原來的申根簽證規定非常嚴格,先到那一國,就要從該國申請,但各國規定不同、申請表格和所需證件又不一樣,再加上要投保指定保險公司,臨時變更行程或前往,都會面臨不便和時間的耽擱。

如果未來通過,丁萊強調,民眾赴歐旅遊將可省下約3千元的簽證和保險費,對旅遊市場的擴大有很大的幫助,包括團體或個人行都更好作業,預計至少可帶到2到3成的成長。

1888年8月7日,陽光也無法穿透的黑霧,一如往常壟罩著潮濕陰暗的東倫敦。龍蛇混雜的白教堂區(Whitechapel),一位身中三十九刀的女性陳屍於暗巷。她是瑪莎.檀布蘭(Martha Tabram)一位年近四十的妓女,為一連串震驚社會的血腥案件揭幕。

幾十天後,瑪莉.安.尼可斯(Mary Ann Nichols)蒼白的軀體橫陳於白教堂地鐵站(Whitechapel Underground Station)後方的Bucks Row(現為Durward St.)。她僵硬的臉上浮現大片嚴重的瘀傷,部分門牙脫落,頸部有兩道割傷,下腹和陰部被穿刺,腸子拖出腹腔外。緊接著,9月8日的安妮.查普曼(Annie Chapman)案、9月30日的伊麗莎白.史泰德(Elizabeth Stride)案與凱薩琳.艾道(Catherine Eddowes)案,兇手殘暴的手法,讓白教堂區連續凶殺案頓時令社會大眾嘩然,東倫敦一時人心惶惶。

同年,9月27日,一封以紅色墨水書寫、措辭優雅卻又嘲諷戲謔的信,投入中央新聞社(Central News Agency)的信箱。

親愛的老闆Dear Boss):」寄信人這麼寫:

不斷地聽聞警察已將我逮捕可惜事實並非如此他們不可能這麼簡單的抓到我當聽到他們自作聰明的聲明一切皆在掌控之中我忍不住大笑不止那個關於皮圍裙的笑話真是取悅了我我痛恨妓女所以我將持續開剖她們直到手軟為止上回真的是件傑作我甚至令那位女士無暇尖叫他們警察又怎麼可能逮捕我呢我熱愛我的傑作而且渴望再來一次我想您將有機會很快地再次聽聞我那些有趣的小遊戲......

I keep on hearing the police have caught me. But they wont fix me just yet. I have laughed they look so clever and talk about being on the right track. That joke about Leather Apron gave me real fits. I am down on whores and I shant quit ripping them till I do get buckled. Grand work the last job was. I gave the lady no time to squeal. How can they catch me now. I love my work and want to start again. You will soon hear of me with my funny little games…

您誠摯的開膛手傑克 敬上 Your Truly Jack the Ripper

從此,開膛手傑克(Jack the Ripper)的名號,在世界上不脛而走。至今,他依然是世界上最惡名昭彰的殺手之一。雖然案件距今已逾百年,但有關該案的書籍與相關研究從未間斷。由於缺乏證據,真凶的身份與真實犯案原因仍是眾說紛紜,令案情更加撲朔迷離。

這一次,米豆班決定於聖誕節前夕,開膛手傑克犯下的最後案件瑪莉.珍.凱莉(Mary Jane Kelly)分屍案的寒冷十一月,邀請各位米豆加入我們的小小偵探團,由Jack the Ripper Walking Tour的專業導遊領隊,帶著大家穿越時空、逐一探訪當年案發現場,透過米豆們天馬行空的推理能力,大家一起抽絲剝繭、揭開白教堂神秘連續兇殺案背後的

Leeds International Film Festival Special: Tsai Ming-liang
Study Day to be held
The Taipei Representative Office in the UK, University of Leeds and Leeds
International Film Festival (LIFF) are cooperating to organise a special event
in Leeds focusing on the Taiwanese director Tsai Ming-Liang. The event will
be held on 15 and 16 November 2010.
This event begins on 15 November with a screening of his film The Wayward
Cloud. A workshop will be hosted by Tsai himself at the University of Leeds
in the morning of 16 November, which will be followed in the afternoon
by an event entitled “An audience with Tsai Ming-liang,” at the Hyde Park
Picture House. This latter event will include a screening of Tsai’s short film,
Madame Butterfly, followed by a Q&A session with the director. To mark
this occasion, Leeds International Film Festival plan to present the Golden
Owl Lifetime Achievement Award to Tsai to celebrate his achievements, and
his contributions to world cinema. Tsai will be the first ever recipient of this
Golden Owl Award.
Taipei-based Tsai Ming-liang is one of the most distinctive and creative voices
in contemporary cinema. His films have been granted numerous awards,
including the Golden Lion in Venice for “Vive l’Amour” (1994), and the Silver
Bear in Berlin for “The River”. Tsai’s films feature a detached but sensitive
vision of life, human relations and solitude. In his latest short, Tsai offers a
very free and personal interpretation of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, in which
he depicts a woman neglected by her lover amongst the crowds of people at
the bus station of Kuala Lumpur.
For more screening information, please visit the LIFF’s website: http://

For more information regarding the workshop to be held at the University of
Leeds, please visit WREAC’s website:
