每日英語跟讀 Ep.820: About Crime - Come to Rio, get robbed: Brazil tourism body shares awkward Instagram post

Brazil’s national tourism agency typically focuses on the city’s world-class beaches, samba-filled music scene and caipirinha-fueled parties. Violent crime is rarely listed among the attractions.

行銷里約熱內盧時,巴西國家觀光機構通常主打該市的世界級海灘、洋溢森巴音樂的地方,以及有卡琵莉亞酒催情的派對。暴力犯罪鮮少被列入魅力特點。

But in an embarrassing social media snafu this week, the Brazilian Tourist Board (Embratur) accidentally shared a critical Instagram post from a tourist who did not enjoy her stay in the so-called "Cidade Maravilhosa," or Marvelous City.

但本週一起令人尷尬的社群媒體烏龍事件中,巴西旅遊局意外地分享了一名不愛待在這個所謂「奇蹟之城」的旅客於Instagram的批評貼文。

"I just spent 3 days in Rio with my family, and in those 3 days my family and I were robbed and my 9-year-old sister witnessed a violent robbery," Instagram user "withlai" wrote in an Instagram Stories post. "I can’t recommend a visit to a city where I felt afraid of even leaving the apartment."

Instagram用戶「withlai」的一則限時動態貼文寫道,「我和我的家人只花了3天在里約,而那3天當中,家人和我都被搶,我的9歲妹妹還親眼目睹了一件暴力搶案。」「我無法推薦拜訪一個我連離開公寓都會怕的城市。」

Embratur deleted the shared post on Wednesday. It said in a subsequent statement that "sharing (the post) was a mistake," adding that it had worked hard to promote a nationwide fall in crime in 2019.

巴西旅遊局週三刪了這則分享貼文。它在隨後聲明中說道,「分享(那則貼文)是個錯誤」,並補充指出,已努力宣傳全國2019年犯罪減少一事。

Safety concerns along with inconvenient flights, poor infrastructure and high costs have long held back Brazil’s tourism industry, which lags its South American neighbors.

除了航班不便、基礎設施貧乏及費用高昂,安全考量令巴西觀光產業長久以來遲滯不前,落後於南美鄰國。

Fraudsters get hefty prison terms for impersonating French minister 詐欺犯因冒充法國部長詐騙被重判

Two men who impersonated a French minister to trick wealthy people out of more than €55m have been jailed by a court in Paris. Chikli was jailed for 11 years and fined €2m while Lasarevitsch received a seven-year sentence and a fine of €1m.

兩名曾假冒法國部長詐欺有錢人逾5500萬歐元的男子,在巴黎法院被判刑入獄。奇克利被判處11年徒刑、200萬歐元罰款,拉薩雷維奇則被判7年徒刑、100萬歐元罰款。

Chikli and Lasarevitsch tried to pull off what some in France are calling the scam of the century by impersonating Le Drian, Minister for Europe and foreign affairs, and conning wealthy individuals out of 80 million euros purportedly to help pay ransoms to free French hostages being held by Islamist terrorists.

奇克利與拉薩雷維奇犯下被法國稱為世紀騙局的案件,冒充外交部長勒德里昂,要求有錢人幫忙支付贖金,營救被伊斯蘭國恐怖份子挾持的人質,據稱總共騙得8000萬歐元。

Prosecutors said that in meetings arranged on Skype, one of the fraudsters would wear a custom-made Le Drian mask and sit in a facsimile of Mr Le Drian’s ministerial office, complete with flags and a portrait of then-President François Hollande.

檢察官表示,在被安排透過Skype視訊的會議中,其中一名詐欺犯穿著訂製的勒德里昂頭套,坐在一間仿造的勒德里昂部長辦公室內,裡頭放有國旗與時任總統歐蘭德的肖像。
