Storyline


A principal official of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) issued a statement Friday, strongly condemning the extreme violent act of assassinating Junius Ho, a member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong.

Ho, an HKSAR lawmaker running for the re-election in district council of Tuen Mun, was attacked as a district council election candidate during his campaign. Ho was stabbed in the left side of his chest by a male in his election campaign event near Richland Garden, Tuen Mun, on Wednesday morning. He was sent to a hospital and fortunately not in a life-threatening condition. Two of Ho's colleagues also sustained injuries.

Such extremely violent crime directly targeting an election candidate has completely crossed the bottom line of law and humanity, and will seriously damage the fairness and safety of the district council elections, the official said.

"We firmly support the relevant authorities of the HKSAR to thoroughly investigate the case and severely punish the perpetrator," he added.

The official extended deep condolences to Ho and his colleagues, and expressed extreme indignation and severe condemnation over the perpetrator's atrocity of murdering the lawmaker in broad daylight.

The official stressed that as the district council elections are approaching, the extremists intend to create a black terror and a chilling effect by smashing and setting fire to the offices of district council members who love the country and love Hong Kong as well as some shops, threatening candidates and volunteers, destroying election posters, and even assassinating a patriotic candidate, so as to intimidate patriotic Hong Kong people not to run in the election, to support the election, or to vote.

Hong Kong residents should fully recognize the evil intentions of the rioters in sabotaging the district council elections and disrupting Hong Kong, and stand up bravely and sternly condemn the black terror and election violence, said the official, calling on Hong Kong residents to work together to speak out against violence, maintain a fair, just and safe election order, and uphold the rule of law and the "one country, two systems" principle in Hong Kong.
