Overseas network, Nov. 15 - Hong Kong Civil Service Secretary Luo Zhiguang sent a letter to Hong Kong civil servants saying that the Hong Kong SAR government has zero tolerance for civil servants illegal acts. Luo Zhiguang stressed that once someone is convicted of committing a criminal offence, the Hong Kong SAR government must take disciplinary action in accordance with the established mechanism and never tolerate it.
According to Hong Kongs orange news on the 15th, Luo Zhiguang, the Secretary of the Hong Kong Civil Service Bureau, said that recently, there have been uncoordinated incidents among civil servants from different departments while performing their tasks. In addition, there have also been arrests of civil servants suspected of participating in violent activities. These incidents call into question whether Hong Kongs public servants can work together to deal with the violence crisis in Hong Kong.
Luo Zhiguang said that the relevant civil servants must respond promptly to the uncoordinated incidents among the public servants in different departments or misunderstandings among the staff involved in the departments. If the rumors are untrue, they must also clarify them at the first time, so as to avoid the incidents being magnified and exaggerated by interested people, causing suspicion and affecting the overall morale of the public servants in Hong Kong.
Luo Zhiguang expressed great concern about the arrest of individual civil servants suspected of participating in violence in Hong Kong. Luo Zhiguang stressed that the Hong Kong SAR government has zero tolerance for civil servants breaking the law, and will never tolerate civil servants breaking the law. It is believed that Hong Kong citizens will never accept that civil servants who have violated the law will exercise their public power and functions. Therefore, it is hoped that all civil servants will abide by the law and not take part in or commit any illegal actions or acts. In addition, the no masquerading regulation has come into force and it is the duty of Hong Kong civil servants to have a clear understanding of and comply with it.
For civil servants arrested for participating in violent activities, Luo Zhiguang said the civil servant would be suspended because of the public interest. If a civil servant is found guilty of a criminal offence, in addition to being punished by law, the HKSAR government is bound to take disciplinary action against him in accordance with the established mechanism and will never condone it.
According to Hong Kong media, Ye Liu Shuyi, a member of Hong Kongs organic wing and chairman of the New Democratic Party, proposed a motion to all civil servants (including new civil servants) to swear to uphold the basic law and to be loyal to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the peoples Republic of China after the civil servants involved in violence incident in Hong Kong. The final motion was passed by a large proportion. Ye said the HKSAR government, as an employer, should have certain requirements for its employees. Since civil servants are willing to join the HKSAR government, they should uphold the basic law and be loyal to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the peoples Republic of China.
