再談馬英九的英國國籍

果然台灣藍綠兩邊都膠到無朋友,拿馬英九的英國國籍來爭論。作為研究英國國籍法的研究者,雖然昨晚也是睡眠嚴重不足,但我要再澄清一些要點。

首先,免招藍寶膠人口實,我就拿統霉的文章出來:

首先,馬英九陣營的看法,完全是蓄意提供錯誤資料,因為1950年出生的馬英九,根據《英國國籍法1948》(British Nationality Act 1948),第二部分第四條是這樣寫:

Subject to the provisions of this section, every person born within the United Kingdom and Colonies after the commencement of this Act shall be a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies by birth

(中譯:根據本部分,任何人於本法生效後,在聯合王國及其領地出生,俱屬因出生而得的聯合王國及其領地公民)

provided that a person shall not be such a citizen by virtue of this section if at the time of his birth—

(該人不能因本部分成為公民,如他出生時)

(a) his father possesses such immunity from suit and legal process as is accorded to an envoy of a foreign sovereign power accredited to His Majesty, and is not a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies; or

(他父親享有,因代表外國主權國家而得的豁免權,有關權利得到登記,而他父親並非聯合王國及其領地公民)

(b) his father is an enemy alien and the birth occurs in a place then under occupation by the enemy.

(他父親是敵國人員,他出生時該地由敵人佔領)

中華民國當時不是英國敵國,而馬鶴凌當時不可能是中華民國駐香港外交人員,因此,馬英九肯定是百分百的英國臣民(British Subject)和聯合王國及其領地公民(Citizen of United Kingdom and Colonies)。馬英九陣營指英國行屬人主義,完全是蓄意提供虛假陳述,在香港,一早可以告進法院,如果楊秋興被告進法院,可以拿著這點打得馬英九陣營落花流水。

至於馬英九有沒有在1970年持有英國護照,相信英國政府才能解答大家,但如果馬英九沒有領取BN(O),照理論而言,他現在這一刻是沒有英國國籍。

不過,在最近一宗研究中的英國國籍法漏洞中,我們有理由相信,就算沒持有BN(O),馬英九仍然有可能終身擁有CUKC或British Subject的身份,只不過,除非馬英九在1973年實施Immigration Act 1971前於英國本土換領護照,否則CUKC或British Subject都不會在現時這一刻有英國居留權,而這隱藏身份亦可能要打官司才能分曉。

但由這件事可以看到,藍營膠人充斥,連英國國籍法是屬人主義這樣的廢話都講得出,馬英九陣營負責發言的傢伙,應當切什麼,大家自己想。

  1. In addition, Ma Ying-jeou was born on July 13, 1950, which by that time, Britain had already recognized the People’s Republic of China as representing “the legitimate Chinese government”. Any ROC officials thus would have no status under the time. In other words, even if Ma Ho-ling were a ROC official at that point, the HK governemnt would not have recognized his diplomatic status anyway.

    And it was pointed out Ma Ying-jeou belatedly obtained a HK birth certificate in January 1997, which could show that Ma could not possess BC passport. (The British Home Office would have required an official birth certificate for British passport application)

  2. 楊秋興這回倒沒全瘋掉

    至少馬英九陣營的回應是錯誤的,但更錯是馬英九的支持者,我罕有地把一個台灣IP列為blacklist IP,因為我還有一份文件要趕通宵,我沒有時間掃時間多得要命的鄉民。

  3. 最無恥是,美日兩國說候選人沒國籍後,英國仍未回覆,藍霉已搶著為馬英九辯護,這是做媒體應有素養?我也是媒體人耶。

    只有兩個機構,有權威把馬英九國籍之謎解清:英國國會上議院司法委員會,以及英國駐港總領事館。

  4. 其實謝長廷又何嘗不是這樣?他一開始就宣稱「自願放棄綠卡需要填I-407表」。

    事實上呢?看看美國聯邦巡迴上訴法院的判例吧:

    你既然瞭解英國移民法,那能不能解釋一下,什麼是Indefinite leave to remain (ILR)。有ILR的人是不是一用觀光/商務身份入境英國,ILR就終止?

  5. 能否請世澤兄幫忙翻譯美國綠卡相關法案?
    不然總是有藍教徒喜歡說綠卡會自動失效之類的
    我想查清事情原由
