Subject: “Aliens’ Rights to Obtain ROC Nationality with Retention of Original Nationality”
At the present time, I am actively involved in at least three court cases that have bearing on this entire issue. Some of these cases began nearly three years ago, so I can fairly say that am at a very advanced state of research, far beyond anything that a local Taiwanese lawyer could advise you about.
I know how to work cases through the administrative court system, I know how to lobby in the Legislative Yuan, and I have recently had several long talks with the top officials and lawyers in the Ministry of Interior’s Nationality Department. I believe that I have identified where the problems are, and at this stage there is a need to make relevant information available to all concerned parties in Taiwan, so that we can move together in an organized fashion.
Hence, I desire to locate a suitable web-service provider who willing to set up an informational website, on a volunteer basis, so that all related information can be put on the website, something similar to what we have for foreign spouses at http://www.tainan.com/nnfs
That website is sponsored by yangyi.com, and does not contain those irritating pop-up ads or any other such nonsense.
I envision posting much data in English (primarily in HTML format) and Chinese (primarily Adobe Acrobat format, for the benefit of those without Chinese system). For example, I will be able to post specific legal, social, and constitutional arguments in Chinese, as to why foreigners should be entitled to “Obtain ROC Nationality with Retention of Original Nationality”, and post summaries in English. In this way the results of my many years of research will be instantly available to any interested lawyers, legislators, researchers, and other people who may be able to assist in moving this agenda forward.
I also intend to hire a part-time secretary to advance this agenda, hence there will be the need to ask for donations.
Ideally, someone who is working with a local internet service provider, who has the relevant experience and would be willing to donate a website, could be found. I also need to have “mailing list” capability, where interested parties people can automatically subscribe or unsubscribe to the mailing list by submitting a simple email message. I admire what the German Press and Information Office is doing with its mailings, which may be subscribed to via
Christine, the co-founder of ORIENTED.ORG, has discussed this entire idea with me in a recent series of email exchanges. She has agreed to my idea of posting a thread in the Human Rights Forum in an attempt to get this project rolling, and views this as another potential beneficial spinoff of the entire ORIENTED.ORG platform.
