Overseas. Com, Dec. 3 - last weekend, violent activities continued in Hong Kong, and Hong Kong citizens were privatized by rioters using canal covers. Hong Kong police held a regular press conference yesterday (2) to introduce the recent situation. Police said that at the public event in Tsim Sha Tsui last weekend, thugs deviated from the original route of the March and threw bricks and smoke cakes at the public and the police, ignoring peoples lives and causing public panic. The police warned the thugs to stop illegal activities.
General public network and wenhui.com reported that Guo Jiaquan, chief police officer of the police public relations department, said at a press conference that at the end of last week, rioters blocked roads, set fire to shops in Mongkok, Tsim Sha Tsui and Hung Hom, and vandalized shops. They also threw bricks and petrol bombs at police officers. Some bricks were thrown into the glass of police cars and the police officers in the cars were injured in the head. Guo Jiaquan criticized the mob for ignoring most peoples wishes for peace and warned them to stop illegal activities.
Guo Jiaquan said that the mob was still driving around Honghe on the first day, and bricks and glass bottles were placed under the bridge, and the dead could be killed in minutes. Police responded to the situation on the spot and fired tear gas bombs at the mob near the bridge, during which several warnings were issued.
He also pointed out that in the past weekend, an innocent citizen who was clearing the road was hit on the head with a hard object by an irrational mob, and his head was broken instantly. Some netizens said that seeing the video clip called it healing. This kind of behavior is anti intelligent and cold-blooded, and the way of speaking is devoid of humanity. Whats their conscience?
Jiang Yongxiang, a senior police officer (media liaison and information) in the public relations section of the police, said that in the past week, 58 people, including 48 men and 10 women, aged between 14 and 36, were arrested on suspicion of illegal assembly, criminal destruction and police assault. The cumulative number of arrests since June has increased to 5947. In addition, a total of three police officers were injured in operations last week.
Jiang said the police did not use ammunition on Friday (November 29). On Saturday (November 30), the police fired three tear gas bombs, one sponge bullet and one rubber bullet. On the first day, the police fired 17 tear gas bombs, seven rubber bullets and six cloth bag bullets. Jiang Yongxiang also pointed out that some people on the Internet accused the police of registering the arrested under a pseudonym for admission to the hospital was completely untrue and ill conceived.
The police expressed their concern and concern about the violence in the public activities, and called on the organizers of the public activities to take good care of the marchers, so that the public activities could be carried out in a peaceful and orderly manner according to the original route.
The police also said that in case of violence during public activities, the organizer can contact the police in a timely manner, and the police will take law enforcement action in case of violence in public activities, stressing that the police will only use tear gas in case of very violence.
