Decision from Taipei Higher Administrative Court Infringes the Indigenous Peoples’ Right of Public Access to the Media
A few days ago (February 14), Taipei Higher Administrative Court decided to suspend the execution of punishment on Broadcasting Cooperation of China for giving back iradio and Formosa channels which has stirred a storm of regrets among the Council of Indigenous Peoples. They maintained the view that this decision has seriously infringed the Indigenous Peoples’ right of public access to the media and they have demonstrated their solemn protest. NCC permitted Broadcasting Cooperation of China to change license on June 30, 2016, provided; however, they should comply with the terms and condition that “iradio and Formosa of Broadcasting Cooperation of China shall apply for and approve to be accessible to current frequency of iRadio or Formosa upon the completion of national radio programming carried out by Council of Indigenous Peoples and Hakka Affairs Council. Furthermore, Broadcasting Cooperation of China shall be stay cooperative and stop broadcasting and returning the frequency used unconditionally without claiming for compensations when NCC informs it to return the frequency”. The person-in-charge, Chao, Shao-Kang also committed in 2007 that the frequencies shall be returned without any conditions in the event that they were authorized to others. Council of Indigenous Peoples stated that for the purpose of striving for the subjectivity of Indigenous Peoples’ access to media, active actions were taken for planning from September 2016, which later passed the review in November and was approved and issued with preparation and construction license and frequencies. The scene investigation and other matters related to construction are carried out for the launching tower for the time being. It’s estimated to be officially launched in August. However, the launching will be inevitably forced to come to a standstill due to the decision that has seriously damaged the Indigenous Peoples’ right of access to public media. Council of Indigenous Peoples further stressed that subject to Clause 10 of Constitutional Provisions, the state affirms and support multiculturalism and takes initiative to maintain and develop
Declare and Clarify the Setting Process of Legal Service Center for Indigenous Peoples by Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP)
Yesterday (November 7), it’s reported that the President Tsai promised to establish the Legal Service Center for Indigenous Peoples but Council of Indigenous Peoples(CIP) “washed its hands of the matter”. The CIP issues the news release in particular to clarify the setting process of Legal Service Center and says, “That news is different from the fact!” The CIP says, for implementing the promise of President Tsai, the council consulted with Legal Aid Foundation (LAF) on September 7, 2016 to determine that the required expenditure is paid for Legal Service Center by Judicial Yuan, the related projects are proposed by LAF and the CIP takes responsibility to verify and approve the project funds and communicate with local government to find proper public property as the workplaces. The CIP expresses that LAF received the news last week that the Judicial Yuan agreed to afford the expenses of equipment and hardware. In addition, the CIP not only takes charge of the expenses of related personnel but also promotes with LAF to prepare and arrange the following affairs of Legal Service Center. The CIP particularly explains that for maintaining the judicial rights and interests of indigenous people, the council has signed a contract with LAF since 2011 that the LAF provides professional services including legal advice, advocacy, document draft for indigenous people and CIP subsidizes counsel fee, correlative charges for employing legal assistants and business expenses. The CIP particularly mentions the budget in recent three years to show that the total budget for legal aid is 83,000,000 NTD and the number of supporting cases has been over 5595. In the next year, it will aid another 37,000,000 NTD to provide over 2,000 personal aid cases. Finally, the CIP says, the council provides the legal aid services for indigenous people for years and cooperates with LAF to promote the establishment of Legal Service Center. The news reported that CIP turned a deaf ear to the establishment of Legal Service center is obviously inconsistent with the fact.

The Agreement between New Zealand and the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, and Matsu on Economic Cooperation – known as ANZTEC – contains a chapter on Cooperation on Indigenous Issues. Under this chapter, Te Puni Kōkiri and the Council of Indigenous Peoples meet annually to discuss measures to enhance economic, cultural, and people-to-people contacts. Ancient trade routes and the migration of peoples across the Pacific Ocean link Māori and the indigenous peoples of the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu to a common ancestry. This provides a foundation from which both sides can explore new ways to harness the full benefit of ANZTEC for indigenous communities. Since the ANZTEC came into force on 1 December 2013, there has been growing interest from indigenous enterprises in each other’s markets. The Council of Indigenous Peoples and Te Puni Kōkiri discussed a broad range of issues, including trade and economic cooperation, indigenous/tribal tourism, and their ongoing indigenous language revitalisation journey. Connections between indigenous peoples in the Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu and Māori continue to go from strength to strength.Media Statement issued by Council of Indigenous
