Storyline


The government and police of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on early Wednesday morning condemned the violent acts by protesters at the Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday.

In response to the violent acts of protesters at the airport Tuesday night, a spokesman of the HKSAR government said: "A large number of protesters had assembled at the airport since yesterday [Tuesday] afternoon, paralyzing airport operation and causing serious disruption to both inbound and outbound travelers. At night, some violent protesters went even worse as they besieged and assaulted a traveler and a reporter, as well as obstructed an ambulance crew from taking the traveler to hospital. A number of violent protesters attacked a police officer when the police attended to the incident, seriously jeopardizing the officer's personal safety."

The HKSAR government severely condemns the violent acts, which are outrageous and have overstepped the bottom line of a civilized society, said the spokesman, noting that the police will take relentless enforcement action to bring the persons involved to justice.

Hong Kong police issued a statement early Wednesday morning, severely condemning radical and violent acts by protesters at the Hong Kong airport.

On Tuesday night and in the small hours of Wednesday, a large group of protesters unlawfully assembled at the Hong Kong International Airport, and they detained, harassed and assaulted a visitor and a journalist, inflicting physical and mental harm on them, said the statement, noting that the police severely condemn such radical and violent acts of the protesters.

The statement said: "Regarding the first case, police officers were deployed as per a request from the Airport Authority Hong Kong to assist ambulance officers and an injured visitor to leave. However, numerous protesters continuously hurled miscellaneous objects and aimed laser beams at police officers, during which a police officer was assaulted and his baton was snatched. In order to protect himself from threats to life or serious injury, the officer withdrew a pistol and stayed on guard."

As to the second case, a male journalist was violently treated by a number of protesters. The victim's hands were tied with plastic straps, and was assaulted and detained by the protesters. He even fainted for a short period of time, said the statement, adding that ambulance officers successfully sent the two victims to Princess Margaret Hospital and North Lantau Hospital respectively in the end.

In the incident, police have arrested five persons for offenses including unlawful assembly, possession of offensive weapons, assaulting police officers and breaching of the peace, it said, adding that two police officers were injured and sent to North Lantau Hospital, and investigation by the District Crime Team of Airport District is underway.

Police severely condemn the protesters' acts which disregarded the law and order, said the statement, reiterating that an in-depth investigation will be conducted, tracing all clues, to bring assailants to justice.

The Airport Authority Hong Kong said on Wednesday that it has obtained an interim injunction to restrain persons from unlawfully and willfully obstructing or interfering with the proper use of Hong Kong International Airport.

Persons are also restrained from attending or participating in any demonstration or protest or public order event in the airport other than in the area designated by the airport authority, said the Airport Authority Hong Kong, noting that the interim injunction expressly provides that nothing in the interim injunction shall be construed as authorizing any demonstration, protest, or public order event contrary to the Public Order Ordinance.

The Airport Authority Hong Kong said in the "Important Notice" that the Hong Kong International Airport will implement flight rescheduling on Wednesday with flight movements expected to be affected, reminding the travelers to pay attention to the latest flight information through the airport's website and "HKG My Flight" mobile app.
