||Smuggling activities has been a long-term existence of the crime problem in the countries of the world, as well as in Taiwan. Cigarette smuggling is a huge money crimes, not only committed by group, but also by cross-border criminal activities. The effects decided whether the cigarette smuggling to proceed including the strength the investigation unit to check, success assessment for smuggling, and severity of the law and punishment, all of the above are smuggling syndicates will consider before smuggling. For successfully smuggling cigarettes by fishing boat, the most important considerations are the season and the marine. The material of this study is based on the official archives, cigarette smuggling cases based on the data from a fishing boat seized by the Coast Guard during 2009-2011. Especially focus on characteristic s of “time”, “place”, together with the wind speed, wave height and flow rate, etc. by the research institute of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications Transport. The analysis is to understand the correlation between their mutual, to explore the correlation coefficient, and sinks the entire current legal requirements in order to analyze whether allow smuggling syndicate with impunity and large-scale smuggling of cigarettes of legal loopholes. The purposes of the study are summarized as follow:|
A. to explore fishing boats carrying contraband cigarettes into and out of Taiwanese waters have been seized at the time, place and the relationship of the factors of marine, to summarize the relationship between weather, marine and the activities of smuggling cigarettes by fishing boats.
B. to analysis and highlights Taiwanese current inadequacies toward regulations in relation to smuggling cigarettes by fishing boats, to allow government departments to have a reference in the development of relevant laws.
This study showed that during 2009-2011, frequency highest place for smuggling cigarettes by fishing boats are in Ilan and Kaohsiung, in the month of May, the time during 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. in the morning. Wind speed of 5 m / s, the wave height of 1.1 meters and seawater flow rate ratio of less than 0.4 m / s up to 80%. The number of cigarette smuggling by fishing boats departing and leaving Taiwanese waters was seized, correlation coefficients were calculated between the prevailing wind speed, wave height and flow rate of -0.55, -0.55, and -0.82 and -0.58 -0.61 and -0.50. The result calculated by the analysis of the correlation coefficient is -0.5, showing negative moderate correlation, as well as highly relevant negative. The result shows that there is an important relationship between smuggling and marine factors and marine factor is an important factor to decide whether smuggling by fishing boat to proceed.
