Hong Kong Liaison Office severely condemns mob attacks and deaths of innocent people
Hong Kong, 15 Nov (Xinhua) the person in charge of the Liaison Office of the Central people's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative region issued a statement on 15 November expressing his deep condolences to an innocent citizen who died after being frantically attacked by thugs. Harshly condemn the frenzied attacks of extremist militants.
On the afternoon of November 13, outside Sheung Shui Square, a group of black-clad thugs frantically attacked citizens clearing roadblocks, smashing hard objects into a 70-year-old cleaning worker contracted out by the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (Fehd), causing him to fall to the ground on his back and seriously injure his head on the spot. After medical treatment, he died on the evening of November 14. Such atrocities against human beings, which are indiscriminately harmful to human lives, are inhumane and intolerable. The responsible person said that the Liaison Office expressed its deep condolences to the deceased and expressed condolences to their families, expressed great indignation and severe condemnation at this insane atrocity, and firmly supported the SAR Government and the Hong Kong police in severely punishing them in accordance with the law and demonstrating the rule of law and justice.
The responsible person pointed out: recently, violent crimes in Hong Kong have escalated in an all-round way, and thugs have frequently adopted terrorist measures that ignore human lives and dehumanize humanity, seriously threatening the safety of the lives and property of the broad masses of Hong Kong people, and putting Hong Kong in a state of self-danger. "Black terror" hangs over the city. The gory facts tell us that Hong Kong can no longer go on in such chaos, otherwise every member of the public will face a serious threat. All the people of Hong Kong must resolutely sever their seats with violence and jointly safeguard the rule of law and social stability.
The official said that in recent days, more and more citizens have bravely stepped forward to spontaneously clean up roadblocks, protect the elderly and children passing by, and cheer for the police on duty. Their actions are a reflection of the desire of the people of Hong Kong to say goodbye to fear and restore peace of mind. The Liaison Office of the Central people's Government of Hong Kong pays tribute to these ordinary people and hopes that more people who love Hong Kong can come out and come forward and take concrete actions to say no to violence, so as to demonstrate the strong positive energy of restoring social order.
