致WHO幹事長譚德塞先生:

您在2020年4月8日在WHO日內瓦總部的記者會中提到,自己在防疫期間收到死亡威脅和種族歧視,時間長達2至3個月,點名說他是黑人、黑鬼,且強調「這些攻擊就來自台灣」,您還說:「我今天直接說,來自台灣。台灣外交部也知道這個活動,但他們沒有迴避,反而開始跟著侮辱、毀謗批評我。」

事實上,您記者會上公然針對台灣做的指控,完全沒有證據也絕非事實,台灣人民對您的批評是針對您及您目前所領導的WHO,對外標榜的目標是協助全球對抗疾病,但這次來自中國武漢的新型冠狀病毒,到目前為止已經讓全球有超過140萬人確診,美國更是高達1萬3000多人死亡;難道都與WHO的疏忽、通報動作慢、坦護中共、隱匿疫情,造成病毒不斷地傳染無關?難道防疫不是世界衛生組織應該要負起的責任嗎?

事實上身爲長久以來被WHO漠視、被中共無情無理打壓的「台灣」,不但從來沒有種族歧視的文化,反而是一個包容各種族的國家,台灣以有來自世界各地的「新台灣人」而自豪,甚至台灣籃球國家代表隊更在2014年,任命原美籍黑人的規化球員戴維斯擔任國家代表隊的隊長!台灣向來以對各國旅客的友善、熱情著稱,只是您總是心向中共、心中沒有台灣、不願意了解台灣,才會有所不知而以。

誠如台灣外交部針對您所發出聲明,台灣為成熟及高素養的先進民主國家,絕無鼓動國人針對WHO幹事長本人進行人身攻擊的情事,更不可能發表任何種族歧視的言論。

您無端指控我國政府及台灣人民對他本人進行抹黑攻擊,子虛烏有的指控嚴重誤導國際視聽,對此表達強烈不滿與高度遺憾,並提出最嚴正的抗議。

您及您目前所領導的WHO防疫作爲漏洞百出,導致如今的慘狀,卻從不自我檢討,還利用WHO的光環與資源,公然在國際記者會上栽贓、抹黑防疫表現名列前茅的台灣,在您的領導下,WHO早已失能,甚至已淪爲中共的附隨組織CHO,因此,我們要求您道歉、下台!

台灣公民

敬上


To Dr. Tedros, Director-General of WHO:

In the April 8, 2020 press conference at WHO Headquarters in Geneva, you claimed to have received death threats and racist insults while fighting the coronavirus pandemic in the past three months, and emphasized that "this attack came from Taiwan". You stated further, that "I will be straight today. From Taiwan... And Taiwan, the Foreign Ministry also, they know the campaign. They didn't disassociate themselves. They even started criticizing me in the middle of all that insult and slur." You went as far to stress in anger, "that's enough!"

The allegations you made against Taiwan during the press conference was completely untrue and baseless. Taiwanese people have been criticizing your leadership over the WHO, in which it broadcasts its aim to fight against global pandemics. Yet the Chinese Wuhan coronavirus has so far infected over 1.4 million people worldwide, with more than 13,000 death in the United States alone. Didn't the neglect by the WHO, delayed reporting and whitewashing China's coverup of the epidemic have anything to do with the continuous widespread of the pandemic we're facing today? Isn't epidemic prevention the responsibility that the World Health Organization should shoulder?

The truth is, as a nation long been ignored by the WHO, and ruthlessly repressed by China, Taiwan has not only ever tolerated any type of discrimination, it is a country that embraces all ethnic groups. Taiwan is proud of all of its new residents immigrated from all across the globe. In 2014, Taiwan named Quincy Davis, an immigrant originally an African American, the captain of the National Basketball team. Taiwan has been known for its friendliness and enthusiasm with open arms to travelers from abroad. Unfortunately you have your ears glued to China and never gotten to know, or willing to learn about Taiwan, that resulted in your ignorance towards Taiwan.

As stated by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as a mature and advanced democratic country, Taiwan would never incite its citizens to instigate personal attacks against the Director-General of the WHO, it certainly would not possibly make any such representations involving racial discrimination.

You have made baseless accusations against the government and the people of Taiwan for raising personal attack campaign, such false accusations are misleading to the international community. For that, we express profound regret and raise the strongest protest over these groundless accusations.

You and the WHO, under your leadership, have failed miserably over the handling of the coronavirus pandemic that led to the overwhelming tragedy across the globe. Yet you failed to examine your own actions and failure to act. You claimed to have "no time to waste" and urge to "focus on saving lives." Yet you wasted precious resources of the WHO to carry out a smear campaign against Taiwan to shift the focus from your failure in handling the coronavirus pandemic onto a fabricated mater of racism, with full intention to overshadow Taiwan's achievement in this fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Under your leadership, the WHO has long lost its capability and reduced to a mere puppet of the CCP, and became better known as the Chinese Health Organization. For that, we demand your apology and resignation.

Dr. Tedros, enough is enough!

Yours truly,
Citizens of Taiwan.
