Yang Guang said: On the evening of August 11, a very small number of rioters threw petrol bombs at police officers in Changsha Bay Police Station, Tsim Sha Tsui Police Station and Wan Chai Police Headquarters, causing many burns to police officers. We express our extreme indignation and strong condemnation of this serious criminal act, which is insane and reckless. At the same time, we express our condolences to the injured police officers!
Yang Guang pointed out that the Hong Kong Police Force is the backbone of maintaining public order and the rule of law in Hong Kong. Over the past two months, Hong Kong police officers have performed their duties in accordance with the law, demonstrated professional restraint and made important contributions on the front line of fighting riots. They have won the general praise and respect of all peace-loving people, including the general public of Hong Kong. But over the past few days, radical demonstrators in Hong Kong have repeatedly attacked police officers with extremely dangerous tools, constituting serious violent crimes and beginning to show signs of terrorism, which is a gross violation of the rule of law and social order in Hong Kong, a serious threat to the lives and safety of Hong Kong citizens, and a serious challenge to Hong Kongs prosperity and stability. Such violent crimes must be dealt with resolutely and in accordance with the law, without mercy or relentlessness. We strongly support the Hong Kong Police Force and the judiciary in resolutely enforcing the law and rigorously administering justice and bringing offenders to justice as soon as possible.
