Hong Kong: Released activist announces legal action against police

Hong Kong, Hong Kong
17 septiembre 2019 a las 11:33 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

Democratic Party leader Hui Chi-Fung said he would be seeking "to start a civil action against the police for unlawful detention and for unlawful arrest" at a press conference held as soon as he was released from custody in Hong Kong on Tuesday.

"I urge Hong Kong people and for those who are just like me, facing police brutality and unlawful arrest and detention to really stand up and make their voice heard. I and the Democratic Party will be supporting them with all the legal actions and all the complaints and follow-ups. I urge them to give us information and we will offer help," Hui said.

The democratic Legislative Council member was arrested on 15 September in Hong Kong's North Point, where protesters clashed with police, for "obstructing police officer" despite allegedly only trying to mediate between riot police and not implicated passer-by.

"Ironically, I was charged for obstructing police officer. While I was discharging my own duty as legislative council member for monitoring the government and just asking both sides to calm down," he said.

Hong Kong has been rocked by demonstrations sparked by a proposed extradition bill since March. Despite the law being withdrawn, demonstrations evolved into a movement with wider grievances.
