缅甸示威镇压致39死 翁山淑枝今出庭聆讯

缅甸原国务资政翁山淑枝,被军方政府指控,涉嫌受贿60万美元(约80万新元)和逾11公斤黄金,她在今日(15日)透过视讯出庭聆讯。 翁山淑枝领导的全国民主联盟在去年11月选举大胜,但军方指责选举有舞弊现象。军方在2月1日突然发动政变,逮捕了包括翁山淑枝等领袖。 缅甸目前局势依然严峻,示威者仍持续反军方示威。缅甸军警也回以血腥镇压。仅在周日,至少有38名示威者,以及在一名警员死亡,这是2月1日政变以来,最血腥一天。 缅甸经济也大受影响,例如仰光莱达亚工业区,多家工厂遭攻击和纵火,居民们不敢外出,也有警员开枪对付示威者。 据中国驻缅甸大使馆声明,位于莱达亚一家制衣厂遭袭击和纵火,有中国籍员工受伤和受困。该使馆要求当地警方采取有力措施,并再次向中国在缅企业和人员发出安全提示。 据知兰达雅工业区被攻击的中资工厂,包括Global Fashion,还有一间是台湾人投资的制鞋厂Tsang Yih,至于起火原因为何尚在调查中。

民调显示仅41巴仙受访者 肯定新加坡政治领导应对能力

上月3日至19日,总部设于我国的研究机构“黑箱研究”(Blackbox Research,以及民调公司Toluna联手,对23个国家和地区共1万2592名民众进行民调,调查民众对各国政府应对冠状病毒19 危机的满意度。 整体满意度得分最高为中国(85分)、越南居次(77分)、印度第三(59分)、马来西亚第四(58分)以及台湾(50分)。至于我国整体得分48分,与印尼齐名,排名第七。 满意度评分分为四个方面,包括政治领导力、企业领导力、社区和媒体。 新加坡政治领导力满意度仅41巴仙 目前,冠状病毒19全球累计确诊已超过433万,如何应对疫情也考验各国领导者能力。全球仅七国政治领导获得民众过半满意,包括中国、越南、新西兰、阿联酋、马来西亚、印度和台湾。 而新加坡方面,仅41巴仙受访者,满意政治领导者对疫情的表现。 不过,抽样参与调查的样本数很小,仅300国人。故此读者姑且仅将此民调作为参考。值得注意的是,民调是在上月3日至19日进行,而我国总理李显龙,是在4月3日宣布,7日起落实阻断措施。我国从原本的防疫典范,因为确诊病例剧增,也需要落实更严谨措施,相信也多少动摇民众信心。 杨莉明曾指阻断措施或能尽早开始,不是等到四月 尽管强调政府一早采取应对措施,但在口罩课题上,也从一开始的“没生病不用戴口罩”,到后来开始意识到口罩防范的重要,最终要求民众一出门就必须戴口罩。 国家发展部长黄循财,在接受外国媒体采访时也坦言,在这场前所未有的冠状病毒19…
