🔴Tuesday March 2nd 2021 🔵2021年3月2日星期二 1️⃣Fiat Chrysler Automobiles: guilty as charged! 飛雅特-克萊斯勒汽車集團:當之有罪! Fiat Chrysler Automobiles pleaded guilty to conspiring to make lavish and illegal gifts, worth more than $3.5m, to leaders of the United Auto Workers, an American trade union. The Italian-American carmaker (whose largest shareholder, Exor, part-owns The Economist) recently merged with PSA, a rival, to form Stellantis. FCA’s American division agreed to pay a $30m fine. 飛雅特-克萊斯勒汽車集團 (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles,FCA) 對向“全美汽車工人聯合會 (United Auto Workers,一強大的工會)”的領導幹部們提供價值超過 350萬美元的豪華/非法禮物一案表示認罪。這家義大利-美國汽車製造商 (其最大股東 Exor 亦持有《經濟學人 (集團)》超過四成的股份) 最近與其競爭對手 PSA (寶獅雪鐵龍集團) 合併、成立了 Stellantis (造就了全球第四大的汽車集團)。FCA 的美國分部同意支付三千萬美元的罰款。 2️⃣Former French President Sarkozy: sentenced three years! 法國前總統薩科吉:判刑三年! A French court sentenced Nicolas Sarkozy, a former president, to three years in prison for corruption and influence-peddling. He was found guilty of trying to bribe a judge in 2014 with a job in Monaco in exchange for information about another case involving his campaign finances. But Mr Sarkozy is unlikely to become the first former president to serve a custodial sentence—he will appeal against his conviction and anyway, two years are suspended, and he can choose to spend the third at home. 法國一法院基於貪污和權力尋租 (指政府官員或掌權者利用自己的權力或影響力為他人獲取不正當利益的非法行為) 判處前總統薩科吉 (Nicolas Sarkozy) 三年有期徒刑。薩科吉在 2014年以至摩納哥 (Monaco,一位在南法且極為富裕的公國/親王國) 工作為條件、試圖賄賂一名法官以獲取涉及薩科吉競選財務之案件的信息。然而,薩科吉不太可能成為第一個入監服刑的法國總統。他將提出上訴,除此之外 (三年中的) 兩年徒刑已暫緩,而且他可以選擇在家中度過他的第三年刑期。 3️⃣Wray of light: FBI director testifies 一線曙光?當 FBI 局長來作證 Christopher Wray, America’s FBI director, will testify before Congress today for the first time since the storming of the Capitol building on January 6th. Committees in the House of Representatives and Senate have been holding hearings into security lapses around the attack; on February 23rd they heard from the former top security officials in each chamber. Security remains tight around the Capitol, and last week Yogananda Pittman, acting chief of the Capitol Police, warned Congress that the threat from domestic terrorists remains high. The Biden administration has promised to increase attention on the threat from domestic extremism. The Justice Department has announced sizeable grants to help state and local governments fight domestic extremism, though lawmakers remain divided over the proper focus. Republicans want more attention paid to the threat from Antifa, an array of anti-fascist activists, and others they see as left-wing extremists, while Democrats want to maintain focus on the types who attacked the Capitol. 在今天,美國聯邦調查局 (Federal Bureau of Investigation,FBI) 的局長瑞伊 (Christopher Wray) 將首度在美國國會對 (今年) 1月6日的“國會山莊遭衝擊事件”出席作證。美國參眾兩院的不同委員會已圍繞著 (國會遭) 衝擊事件中的維安疏失舉行了數場聽證會,而數名負責國會維安工作的高階主管已於 (今年) 2月23日出席作證。國會山莊周遭的維安依然緊繃,而上週美國國會警察局代理局長 Yogananda Pittman 警告整個國會山莊仍面臨著 (美國) 國內極端組織的高度威脅。拜登政府已承諾加強對 (美國) 國內極端主義威脅的關注。即使國會議員仍在適當的關注層面上意見分歧,美國司法部已宣佈批准可觀的預算以協助各州與地方政府對抗國內的極端主義。共和黨人希望多加關注 Antifa (美國一場高度去中心化的左派、反法西斯主義、反種族主義的政治運動,由一系列的無領袖抵抗團體或人士所推動) 所帶來的威脅,而 Antifa 則被其他人視為極端的左派主義者。民主黨人則希望繼續聚焦在那些攻擊國會山莊的人上面。
