Angry, upset uni chief says two youths caught on camera pasting insulting posters

Local | 8 Sep 2017 2:20 pm

The two people who put up posters at Education University insulting the Undersecretary for Education, Christine Choi Yuk-lin, after her son Poon Hong-yan, committed suicide, have been captured on surveillance cameras, the president Stephen Cheung Yan-leung (pictured), said today, adding that it is not yet known if the two youth are students.

He also said he was angry and upset over the posters in the Tai Po campus on Thursday. He apologized to Choi and her family.

The university is trying to identify the perpetrators, Cheung said. A disciplinary committee will decide the seriousness of the offense if they are students.

He condemned the lack of morals. "We allow freedom of speech but we expect them to mutually respect each other. This is my bottom line.”

Peter Poon jumped to his death from the family's 41st floor apartment in The Sorrento in Kowloon yesterday.
