Gov’t, Police condemn violent acts

July 22, 2019

The Government has strongly condemned the violent acts in Sheung Wan and Yuen Long on July 21.


It said following the storming of the Central People’s Government’s Liaison Office building, some radical protesters initiated a series of violent acts in Sheung Wan, despite repeated warnings by Police.


These outrageous acts included hurling petrol bombs, setting fires, throwing bricks and blocking thoroughfares.


In Yuen Long, some people congregated at MTR station platforms and in train compartments where they attacked commuters. This led to confrontations and injuries.


The Government said such violent acts are unacceptable to Hong Kong as a society that observes the rule of law, adding that it will seriously take enforcement action.


The Police also strongly condemned the violent incidents in Sheung Wan and Yuen Long, saying they do not tolerate any violent behaviours and they are actively following up on the two incidents to bring the offenders to justice.
