Chen apologizes for misinformation about pipes陳表示歉意誤傳管


“After gaining further understanding, (we) discovered that our team made serious mistakes when it came to horizontal communication ... but (we) did not lie,” said the mayor in an interview after her apology.

Chen was seen bowing low in apology after the local China Times publicized a government document pointing out that while inspecting the locations for the city's light rail system project, Kaohsiung's Mass Rapid Transit Bureau (MRTB) had discovered the LCY Chemical Corp. (LCY, 李長榮化學工業) pipelines that ultimately caused the multiple explosions in downtown Kaoshiung; however, the Kaohsiung government had previously stated that there was no information regarding the LCY pipelines.

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊) apologized yesterday for “horizontal miscommunication” after a local newspaper revealed that the Kaohsiung government did in fact know about the underground pipelines near the city's light rail system.

MRTB Director Chen Tsun-yung (陳存永) stated afterwards that the bureau did not know about the pipelines that did not belong to the MRT system. “The pipelines we had to inspect for the MRT system were ones that are less than one meter under the ground; I did not know about the LCY pipelines that were 1.5 meters below,” said the director.

Kaohsiung's Public Works Bureau (PWB) Director Yang Ming-chou (楊明州) noted that the PWB did not have information and pipeline graphs provided by LCY; the company or unit in charge of each pipeline should provide the said information on their own.

“The PWB charges each unit in control of a pipeline road usage fees, and LCY has indeed paid its share. But this does not mean the government knows there were LCY pipelines there,” said PWB Department of Planning head Su Lung-hua (蘇隆華).


Four Leading Kaohsiung Officials Resign

A week after the multiple explosions that ripped apart several blocks in Kaohsiung's city center, four of the southern city's leading political officials tendered their resignations to Mayor Chen.

Deputy Mayor Wu Hong-mo (吳宏謀), Water Resources Bureau head Lee Hsien-yi (李賢義), PWB head Yang Ming-chou (楊明州) and MRTB head Chen Tsun-yung (陳存永) all decided to step down yesterday afternoon in order to take responsibility for the explosions, but the mayor has not yet approved the resignations.


LCY Head Attacked at Memorial Service

A public memorial service was held yesterday for the 30 people who died in the explosions, as it had been seven days since their deaths. Chen attended the service to pay her respects to the dead, also promising that she would discuss the issue of the pipeline reconstruction with the units in charge and give the citizens a “satisfactory answer.”

“We will replace mourning with humbleness and activeness, hoping that Kaohsiung will not be beaten,” said Chen. “Kaohsiung has been identified as an industrial city; the government has been trying to change that image in recent years and leave behind the city's fate of remaining a city of heavy industries, yet we have not worked hard enough.”

LCY Chairman Bowei Lee (李謀偉) also attended the public service, leading a group of his staff to pay their respects to the dead. A scuffle ensued shortly after Lee arrived, with the family of the deceased rushing at him and some even throwing bottled water and cups at his head. “We have arrived late,” Lee was heard saying at the service.

台北,台灣 - 高雄市長陳菊(陳菊)昨天道歉的“橫向溝通不暢”後,當地一家報紙透露,高雄市政府其實是知道有關地下管線靠近城市的輕軌系統。

陳被視為鞠躬低,道歉之後,當地的中國時報公佈一份政府文件指出,在檢查全市的輕軌系統項目的位置,高雄捷運局(熱感應雙筒望遠鏡)發現了李長榮化工股份有限公司(LCY和李長榮化學工業)等的管道,最終導致在高雄繁華的多起爆炸; 然而,高雄市政府此前曾表示,有關於李長榮管線資料。


熱感應雙筒望遠鏡導演陳駿庸(陳存永)事後表示,該局並不知道這不屬於捷運系統的管道。“我們必須檢查是否有捷運系統的管道是那些在地面下不到一米; 我不知道該李長榮管道都低於1.5米,“導演說。

高雄市政府工務局(印刷電路板)主任楊明宙(楊明州)指出,工作計劃和預算沒有通過李長榮提供的信息和管線圖; 負責各管道的公司或單位應提供自己的上述信息。







“我們將用謙卑和主動性更換哀悼,希望高雄也不會挨打,”陳先生說。“高雄已被確定為一個工業城市; 政府一直在試圖改變這種形象,近年來並留下其餘城市重工業城市的命運背後,但我們並沒有努力不夠。“
