Protesters urged to stop blockade

October 10, 2014

Police are urging protesters not to encourage more people to join them in occupying roads, as it will worsen the impact the protest is having on the general public.


Police Public Relations Branch Senior Superintendent Kong Man-keung told the media today that people occupying roads in various districts should remove obstacles and leave the scene in an orderly manner.


He refuted a newspaper report claiming some Police officers are dissatisfied with the way the force has handled the situation, saying it is a highly professional law enforcement agency with well trained and fully committed officers.


He said officers are united and are serving the public selflessly as a strong team.


“We have been all along discharging our duties fairly and impartially. We understand the difficulty in carrying out our duty at this moment and the unprecedented complexity of this operation.”


Unfounded allegations against Police officers are extremely unfair to them, he added.
