[TR] Temasek Review should not acquire The Online Citizen

“网络公民”拒绝让 “淡马锡评论”接管   与此同时,另一个论政网站“淡马锡评论”(Temasek Review)写信给“网络公民”,表示愿意接管这个网站以避免它关闭。不过,建议已遭“网络公民”拒绝。   “网络公民”星期五晚上把由代主编张嘉仁(35岁)和两名联合创办人朱正熙(25岁)与罗鸿辉(43岁,译音)联名撰写的文告放上网,对被定为政治团体一事作出表态。   文告否认“网络公民”是个政治团体,指网站过去几年抢先报道了一些社会现象并倡导了几个课题,“就因为我们做了这些事而把我们称为政治团体,简直是傻的。”   文告说,“网络公民”已写信要求李总理取消把网站定为政治团体的决定,不然就得解释政府决定把网站定为政治团体的原因。   而等总理答复之后,如果把四名编辑的个人资料提交给政治捐款注册处和媒发局,是让网站生存下去的唯一办法,它准备这么做。“网络公民”重申不会为了避免被定为政治团体而关闭或走入地下。   政治捐款注册处本周一发信给“网络公民”,要求公布编辑和负责人身份,并指定三人为主席、财政和秘书长。政府要把它定为政治团体,是为了透过政治捐款法令确保它没有收取来自国外的资金。“网络公民”表示没有接受外国资金,几乎所有运作经费都由网站的志愿者自费。   “淡马锡评论”前天写信给“网络公民”,提议购买“网络公民”的域名,让它在“淡马锡评论”之下独立运作,但“网络公民”现有的编辑团队需卸下编辑职务,改以供稿者的身份写稿。   “淡马锡评论”主编刘嘉仪回答本报询问时证实,“网络公民”已拒绝了这个建议,但她不会因此而感到失望。   “我们认为‘网络公民’做得很好,如果关闭很可惜。我们是为了保住‘网络公民’的精神,才提出接管的建议。”
