Loving Taiwan (2007/12/03)

The Immigration Bureau highlighted Thursday the case of Taiwan’s longest serving foreign detainee awaiting repatriation, a Nigerian national who has been in detention for over a decade. Immigration officials have aborted six previous attempt to send him back to Nigeria after he created a scene on the airplane each time, forcing him to be removed. He says the reason he refuses to go back to his home country is that despite being locked up, he loves Taiwan.

Franklin Nwosu Qgonna was found to have overstayed his visa and taken to a detention center to await repatriation. That was almost 11 years ago.

You could say he’s a little eccentric, said Lin Cing-long, director of the Immigration Bureau’s Taipei Detention Center. He doesn’t interact with the other detainees. He even rejects the detention officers.

Back in 1997, Franklin came to Taiwan on a 30-day visa to buy car components. When the planned business deal didn’t come through, he decided to stay on in Taiwan despite his visa running out. He was found by police and taken to the detention center. Despite six previous efforts to repatriate Franklin, each time he has found a way to postpone his departure.

He has done all kinds of things just before getting on the airplane, such as taking off his clothes, or shouting loudly, things like that, said Lin.

The Immigration Bureau denied it was planning offering the 43-year-old citizenship. But with detainees costing the government NT$80 per day, his stay has cost over NT$300,000 over the 10-plus years so far. Concerned at the mounting cost of his extended detention, the Immigration Bureau is discussing a strategy for finally solving the problem.

奈及利亞人

一名奈及利亞籍的男子,1997年來台洽商,因為逾期被查獲送進收容所,沒想到他從此不願離開台灣,雖然期間六度強制遣返,但是他一上飛機就吵鬧,用盡各種手段拒絕被遣返,結果在台灣一待超過11年。

滿頭白髮,穿著白色運動服,他叫做Franklin Nwosu QGonna,奈及利亞籍,因為簽證過期,被警方查獲,誰知道在收容所裡,一待就是11年。

[[移民署台北收容所長 林慶龍]]
“應該算是孤僻
他從來不跟其他的收容人互動
甚是連管理人員他都拒絕”

現在43歲的法蘭克林,11年前,持30天簽證來台,從事汽車零件生意,不成後逾期滯留被警方查獲,送進收容中心,就不肯離開,六度強制遣返,一上飛機就大鬧,拒絕遣返。

[[移民署台北收容所長 林慶龍]]
“要上飛機前做出各種動作
包括脫衣服大聲喊叫
等等的行為”

移民署否認要讓他入籍,但11年來,光是每天80圓的伙食費,累積到現在超過三十萬,還不知道得支付多久,或許法蘭克林是看上在收容所有吃有住,樂不思蜀,現在移民署要開會商討對策。
