〔即時新聞/綜合報導〕澳洲媒體日前揭露國民黨副秘書長蔡正元與商人孫天群等人,威脅共諜案主角「王立強」,要求他更改說詞,謊稱遭到民進黨收買。澳大利亞戰略政策研究所研究員周安瀾(Alex Joske)10日在推特公布王立強與孫天群對話截圖,還把與蔡正元的對話與「講稿」傳給王立強。

周安瀾在推特上PO出數張孫天群與王立強的對話截圖,孫天群某日私訊王立強,稱兩人可能在上海見過面,要求視訊通話把事情當面說清楚,王立強以小孩在睡覺為由拒絕通話,孫天群隨即講明自己是受國民黨所託。

孫天群更把他與蔡正元的對話截圖傳給王立強,其中包括蔡正元的3個承諾,「讓中國撤銷他的通緝,且不干擾他在海外居留」、「有台商會替他清償在中國的債務,不讓他姐姐和父親為難」、「讓中國輕輕處理他的司法責任,可以自由進出中國」,兩人通話間,孫天群還傳給王立強「擬好的講稿」截圖。

講稿截圖全文:

立強好,請將我們今天電話中詳細闡述,關於你在澳洲被台灣民進黨操縱的以下內容,全部過程敘述一下,錄一個視頻發我,以便我幫助向心及你本人澄清事實,還世人有關此次共諜案事實真相。

錄製視頻內容如下:

我起初只是想單純編一個間諜故事解決自己在澳洲申請到政治避難初衷,後來到台灣民進黨受到邱毅仁先生指派的人與我在澳洲見面後,並要求我通過媒體爆料說:

自2017開始用網軍介入滲透台灣選舉,在2018年台灣9合1選舉及2020總統大選參選人韓國瑜政治獻金2000萬元,此人承諾我待台灣2020總統大選完成後,台灣民進黨保證會給我一大筆錢,還安排好在澳洲政治避難申請或去台灣定居。

關於向心只是見過一二次面的一般朋友,我之所以拉向心夫婦成為間諜共犯,主要是我身邊最有錢,最有社會地位人只認識他們夫婦,為了自己編造的間諜故事,更加完美,才編造出向心夫婦是我間諜上線的一個謊言,在此,對向總及家人表示歉意。

蔡正元8日晚上就預告隔日上午記者會上會有核彈級爆料,沒想到同日深夜澳媒《雪梨晨鋒報》就踢爆蔡正元與中國商人孫天群聯手,企圖威脅利誘王立強,要他反咬民進黨拿錢操作共諜案一事。

在通訊軟體「微信」上的畫面截圖中,蔡正元威脅王立強的對話內容。蔡正元反駁稱,那張截圖裡面的文字是簡體字,但他並不會寫簡體字,他與孫姓商人(向心友人)的對話中就沒有用簡體字,為什麼出現簡體,他也高度存疑,他對外打微信全都用繁體字,因為他只會用注音符號(打字)。

中央社 2020.01.09

以下是澳洲「世紀報」8日報導的全文:

一名自稱是中國間諜且試圖向澳洲投誠的男子據稱在去年耶誕夜被警告說,除非他公開撤回先前的供詞,否則可能會被遣返回中國或遭殺害。

 

王立強去年11月接受澳洲媒體「世紀報」(TheAge)、「雪梨晨驅報」(Sydney Morning Herald)及「60分鐘」(60 Minutes)訪問時說,他替一個北京指揮的集團工作,這個集團專門針對香港及台灣的獨立及民主運動進行干預,他這番話引發了國際醜聞。

王立強逃到澳洲尋求庇護,協助澳洲安全情報組織(ASIO)。

中國政府駁斥王立強的說詞,指他的說法虛假,並表示他是被定罪的罪犯;而澳洲安全情報組織總監勃吉斯(Mike Burgess)發布罕見聲明說,澳洲安全情報組織認真看待王立強有關外國干預的自述。

根據熟知第一手消息的匿名人士,澳洲安全機關如今已得知王立強在去年耶誕夜首度受到威脅和勸誘,之後還有許多次。

目前無法聯繫到王立強並取得他的回應,他似乎躲起來了;然而,消息來源說,有人在一連串訊息中告訴王立強,如果他公開聲明撤回先前有關替中國當間諜的說詞,他的家人就可免於受罰,他的債務也會還清。根據消息來源及記者看見的訊息,這些給王立強的指令似乎是由一名在台灣的資深政治人物和一名在中國的商人協調發送。

王立強收到一份底稿,有人指示他錄製一段影片訊息,他要在影片中誣指台灣以民主方式選出的執政黨「民主進步黨」給他「一大筆錢」賄賂他、要他說謊。這類影片會成為台灣這週末的大選中很有爭議的干涉事件,中國共產黨的影響力以及王立強自稱奉命擾亂選舉,成了關鍵政治議題。

澳洲聯邦警察正嚴肅調查王立強受到的疑似威脅,有消息來源證實警方於王立強在耶誕夜首度收到威脅訊息的數小時內就展開調查。

澳洲聯邦警察發言人表示,已獲知一名目前住在澳洲的男子遭受威脅,警方嚴肅看待這種性質的威脅,已開始調查。

澳洲聯邦警察還表示,警方轄下的「反間諜及特殊調查小組」(Counter-Espionage and SpecialInvestigations Taskforce)以外國干預為工作目標,包括隱蔽的干預行動及傳統間諜活動等。

影音訊息

 

台灣政府正在調查王立強11月的說法。他當時宣稱曾在2018年台灣九合一選舉期間,指揮「網軍」散布親北京的政治宣傳。王立強點名的秘密宣傳工具包括多個臉書專頁,其中一個最近遭到臉書關閉。王立強也說,他曾接到要介入1月11日台灣總統大選的指令,並說,就是在接到指令時,他決定叛逃。

熟悉通訊內容的數名消息人士指出,在耶誕夜及之後的幾天,王立強被告知他必須錄製並發布一段影片,在影片中收回上述的說法,並指控是遭到總統蔡英文的民進黨收買。

疑似下達指示的兩個人,一是台灣政壇爭議性人物蔡正元,另一位是在中國經商的孫先生。蔡正元是台灣的主要在野黨中國國民黨(KMT)的前立法委員和現任副秘書長。國民黨在這次大選要挑戰蔡總統。

蔡正元被視為立場親北京,他在2017年因為涉嫌侵占公款遭到逮捕,並短暫羈押。

在據稱是蔡正元發給王立強的訊息中,有蔡正元與中國國家主席習近平會面的照片。王立強被告知,如果他在總統大選本週六登場之前聽從指示,他將可自由回到中國或前往台灣,獲得金錢的報酬,家人也會得到保護,但如果不從,就會被引渡到中國受死,或甚至在澳洲遭到報復。

針對王立強的行動,似乎是要藉著誣陷執政黨於貪腐,藉以左右台灣總統大選的結果。如果民進黨和蔡英文總統敗選,將會是中國政府的重大勝利。

蔡正元等人要求王立強口述的台詞,還包括收回對對中國商人向心的指控。王立強之前曾指稱,向心是他在香港工作時的老闆,並且是中共一批間諜的首腦。

台詞寫道:「向心和我僅見過一兩次面。我說向心夫婦涉及間諜活動,只是因為向心是我所認識最富有、地位也最高的人。」

王立強自稱是間諜的說法11月在澳洲見諸媒體之後,正在台灣訪問的向心被禁止離境,台灣國家安全官員並開始對他進行調查。與中國軍事科技領域有深厚關係的向心否認有任何不法行為。

王立強被要求口述的台詞包括:承認自己在去年11月的媒體訪問中透露他在台灣從事間諜活動的指控,是因為一位民進黨人士「向我承諾……民進黨保證會給我一大筆錢,並解決我在澳洲的庇護申請,或幫助我在台灣定居」。

自由定居台灣

 

消息人士讓世紀報與雪梨晨驅報查看中間人透過各種通訊程式傳給王立強的一些訊息。他們起初試圖向王立強提供利誘,以換取他的合作。一則訊息提到,「如果你在這個月底前接受提議,每個人將協助確保你能安全回到中國大陸,同時將協助你解決你的所有債務。」另一則訊息說:「國民黨已經同意了,他們可讓他安全定居台灣。」

蔡正元似乎一味向王立強提供利誘,那就是在他的政黨安排下,讓王立強安全進入台灣;孫先生則是威脅利誘並施。世紀報與雪梨晨驅報取得的訊息也顯示,孫先生與蔡正元互有聯繫,討論如何與王立強交涉。

消息人士指控孫先生曾提出警告,如果不合作,王立強可能會被引渡到中國並遭到殺害,或者他在中國大陸的家人可能受到懲罰。根據澳洲外國干預法,為了增進外國勢力的利益,使用賄賂或威脅手法侵犯尋求庇護者等在澳人士的權利,將構成犯罪行為。

蔡正元8日下午受訪時表示:「我一直與王立強直接接觸。我的朋友(孫先生)也與他直接接觸。」

蔡正元否認有不當行為,或涉及催促王立強錄製影射民進黨貪腐的劇本。

蔡正元說:「我沒有要求他發表任何聲明。」不過,蔡正元傳了一則訊息給孫先生,他在訊息中似乎提到將指示王立強錄製的劇本。

孫先生8日表示,他已寫好給王立強看的劇本。

孫先生自稱是的向心的密友,但與蔡正元受訪內容和世紀報與雪梨晨驅報看到的訊息不同的是,他否認與蔡正元有聯繫。

向心否認認識王立強,但孫先生表示,兩人曾見過「一到兩次面」。孫先生也證實,向心曾為中國軍方工作。孫先生則否認威脅王立強或他的家人。

尋求庇護

 

王立強11月的電視受訪內容在台灣引發政治風暴。儘管遭到民進黨強烈反對,中國政府仍尋求台灣與大陸統一,而中國影響台灣已成為關鍵的政治議題。

註:面對此項報導,蔡正元今(9)日反擊表示,王立強因債務問題到處騙錢。一位向心好友孫總勸他出來講實話;孫總在跟澳洲記者的訪談錄音檔中,說王立強跟他講,是民進黨要他配合。

Recant or die: Alleged threat to self-confessed Chinese spy Wang Liqiang

By

 

A self-confessed Chinese intelligence operative seeking to defect to Australia was allegedly warned on Christmas Eve that he could be sent back to China and killed unless he publicly retracted his story.

Wang Liqiang caused an international scandal in November when he told The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and 60 Minutes that he had worked on behalf of a Beijing-directed foreign interference ring targeting independence and democracy movements in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Mr Wang fled to Australia to seek asylum and assist ASIO.

 

The Chinese government dismissed his claims as false and said he was a convicted criminal, while ASIO director-general Mike Burgess issued a rare statement saying his agency took claims of foreign interference seriously.

Australian security agencies have now learnt that Mr Wang received the first of a series of threats and inducements on Christmas Eve, according to sources with direct knowledge of the events who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Mr Wang could not be reached for comment and appears to have gone into hiding. However, the sources said he was told in a series of messages that his family would be spared punishment and his debts would be repaid if he gave a public statement retracting his claims about spying for China. The directives sent to Mr Wang appear to have been co-ordinated by a senior political operative in Taiwan and a businessman in China, according to sources and messages sighted by this masthead.

Mr Wang was provided with a script and told to record a video message in which he would falsely claim that Taiwan’s democratically elected governing party, the Democratic Progressive Party, had bribed him to lie by offering him “a large sum of money”. Such a video would be a controversial intervention in Taiwan's presidential election this weekend, where Chinese Communist Party influence and Mr Wang's claims of being ordered to disrupt the election have become a key political issue.

The Australian Federal Police is treating seriously alleged threats to Mr Wang, with sources confirming they opened an investigation in the hours after the first message was received on Christmas Eve.

"The Australian Federal Police is aware of threats made against a man currently residing in Australia," a spokesman said. "The AFP takes threats of this nature seriously and has commenced an investigation."

 

The AFP also said its Counter-Espionage and Special Investigations Taskforce was targeting "foreign interference activities ranging from covert influence campaigns to traditional espionage".

A video message

Taiwan's authorities are investigating Mr Wang's claims in November that he helped run a “cyber army” distributing pro-Beijing propaganda during municipal elections in 2018. One of the Facebook pages Mr Wang nominated as a covert propaganda tool was recently shut down by Facebook. He also said he had been ordered to interfere in the January 11 presidential election and that it was at this point he decided to defect.

Sources familiar with the communications say that on Christmas Eve and over the following days, Mr Wang was told that he must record and release a video retracting those claims and instead implicate President Tsai Ing-wen's Democratic Progressive Party in bribery.

 

The two men suspected of co-ordinating the directives are controversial Taiwanese political figure Alex Tsai and a China-based businessman called Mr Sun. Mr Tsai is a former legislator and a current deputy secretary of Taiwan's main opposition party, the Kuomintang (KMT), which is opposing President Tsai in the election.

Mr Tsai is regarded as close to Beijing and was arrested and briefly detained in 2017 for alleged embezzlement.

Among the messages Mr Tsai allegedly sent Mr Wang are photos of Mr Tsai meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping. Mr Wang was told that if he followed the directives prior to the presidential election this Saturday he would be welcomed back to China or Taiwan, given financial benefits and have his family protected. If he did not comply, however, he was told he would be extradited to China to face death or even be targeted for reprisals in Australia.

The activity targeting Mr Wang appears aimed at swaying the outcome of Taiwan's presidential election by falsely implicating the governing party in corruption. If the DPP and President Tsai lost the election it would be a major coup for the Chinese government.

 

The script Mr Wang was instructed to read also includes a line in which he would recant allegations he made against businessman Xiang Xin, who Mr Wang claimed employed him in Hong Kong and led a Chinese Communist Party spy ring.

"About Xiang Xin, he is only an acquaintance I've met one or two times," the script read. "I implicated him and his wife in espionage together because he is the richest person and most high-status person I know."

After Mr Wang's spying claims were aired in Australia in November, Mr Xiang was prevented from leaving Taiwan by national security officials who began investigating him. Mr Xiang, who has deep ties to China's military technology sector, denies all wrongdoing.

The script Mr Wang was told to read states that he had conducted his November interview revealing his Taiwan spy allegations because a person from the DPP had "promised me ... the Democratic Progressive Party would guarantee that it would give me a large sum of money and sort out my asylum application in Australia or help me settle in Taiwan".

 

'Freely settle in Taiwan'

Sources have allowed The Age and Herald  to view some of the messages sent to Mr Wang via intermediaries on various messaging applications. The initial approaches attempted to offer Mr Wang inducements in return for his co-operation. One message said, “if you take up the offer by the end of this month, everyone will help ensure you safely return to mainland China, and at the same time will help you resolve all your debts". Another said: “The KMT has agreed that they can let him freely settle in Taiwan.”

While Mr Tsai appears to have been prepared to offer only inducements to Mr Wang – namely, safe passage to Taiwan arranged by his political party – Mr Sun issued both threats and inducements. Messages obtained by The Age and the Herald also show Mr Sun and Mr Tsai communicating with each other and discussing how to deal with Mr Wang.

 

Sources alleged Mr Sun warned that Mr Wang could be extradited to China and killed or his family on the Chinese mainland punished if he did not co-operate. It is an offence under Australian foreign interference laws to infringe on the rights of a person in Australia such as an asylum seeker by using bribery or threats in order to advance the interests of a foreign power.

 

Interviewed on Wednesday afternoon, Mr Tsai said: "I have been in direct contact with Wang. My friend [Mr Sun] has also been in direct contact with him."

Mr Tsai denied acting inappropriately or having any involvement in urging Mr Wang to record a script implicating the DPP in corruption.

"I haven't asked him to put out any statement," Mr Tsai said. However, Mr Tsai sent Mr Sun a message in which he appears to refer to the script Mr Wang was to be directed to record.

Mr Sun said on Wednesday that he had written the script for Mr Wang to read.

Mr Sun described himself as a close friend of Xiang Xin but, contrary to Mr Tsai's interview and messages seen by The Age and Herald, denied being in contact with Mr Tsai.

 

While Mr Xiang has denied knowning Mr Wang, Mr Sun said the pair had met "once or twice". Mr Sun also confirmed that Mr Xiang had worked for the Chinese military. Mr Sun denied threatening Mr Wang or his family.

Seeking asylum

Mr Wang’s November television interview sparked a political firestorm in Taiwan. The Chinese government is seeking to reunify Taiwan with the mainland despite fierce opposition from the ruling DPP, and Chinese influence in Taiwan has become a key political issue.

(中央社雪梨9日專電)澳洲警方向媒體證實,當局知道自稱共諜的中國男子王立強受到威脅,並已展開調查。另據瞭解,澳洲聯邦警署已掌握中國國民黨副秘書長蔡正元與中國孫姓商人對王立強威脅利誘的情況。

據瞭解,澳洲聯邦警署(The Australian Federal Police, AFP)在調查蔡正元與孫姓商人(應為孫天群)去年12月24日起發給王立強的訊息和通話內容。王立強目前與妻兒住在澳洲,並已向澳洲當局供稱自己是間諜,同時申請庇護。

可靠消息人士說,孫天群在電話中和文字訊息對王立強提出警告,這些都有紀錄。同時,孫天群和蔡正元對王立強也提供利誘。

根據澳洲重要報紙雪梨晨驅報(Sydney Morning Herald)和同集團的世紀報(The Age)報導,蔡正元與孫天群表明願意提供金錢等報酬,要王立強錄製影音,謊稱他去年11月有關自己是共諜的說法是捏造的,並且要說是受到民進黨的指使。

在被問到蔡、孫二人與王立強的聯繫時,澳洲聯邦警署表示,重視王立強受到的威脅,並已展開調查,但因調查仍在進行,無法提供進一步資訊。

中央社記者詢問蔡正元有關對話截圖,對話內容是以繁體字回應3點承諾。蔡正元指出,這3點內容是王立強所提出,但截圖中的人不是他,可能是合成的;但他之後補充,也可能是他把王立強所要求的東西,再轉貼回去給對方。(編輯:王永志)1090109
