Hong Kong police condemn rumors about ‘831’ incident
    2019-09-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Hong Kong police yesterday strongly condemned the act of spreading malicious rumors about the violent incident occurring at the end of August.

Yu Hoi-kwan, senior superintendent of the Police Public Relations Branch, denied online rumors about “death” in the violent incident on Aug. 31 at a press conference.

The Mong Kok police station has not received any report and the police missing persons unit also has not received any report of missing persons in connection with the incident, Yu said, strongly condemning the rumor-spreading act aimed at “dividing society.”

The police also said 10 anti-violence hotlines have been launched as the unrest entered the third month.

According to the police, the hotlines are solely for receiving anti-violence information, including photos, audio and video clips via WhatsApp in order to assist in the prevention and detection of crime.

Also, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said yesterday that foreign interference in HK’s internal affairs is extremely improper.

Lam made the remarks at a press briefing in response to the proposal of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act in the U.S. Congress.

Lam stressed opposition to the interference of foreign legislatures in HK’s internal affairs in any form.

During the press briefing, Lam also said she was deeply saddened by the violence at Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway (MTR) stations of Central and Prince Edward, calling for an end of the vandalism of infrastructure.

Both the airport and the railway system are the lifeblood of Hong Kong, closely related to the daily life of local residents, Lam said, adding that the escalated violence will not solve social problems but exacerbate conflicts, rifts and hatred.

Lam called on all sectors of the Hong Kong community to work together to stop violence.

Rule of law is an important core value of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong government will investigate all violent incidents according to the law, Lam said.

Lam also said the Hong Kong government was very sincere in engaging in dialogue with people from different backgrounds and she and other officials will reach out to the community this month, adding that she will strive to make the dialogue open to the public.
