Regina Ip says police to help on Link REIT threats claims
Thursday, December 07, 2017
New People's Party chairwoman and executive councillor Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee said today that the police have offered to assist her over alleged threats she says the Link REIT made to try to "silence her.''
Ip claimed yesterday the investment trust sent a message through a founder of the Lion Rock Institute, Simon Lee, that there would be trouble for Ip's district councillors if she doesn't stop criticizing the Reit. But the Reit and Lee have both denied this.
In a radio chat show today, a member of Ip's party, Derek Yuen, said when Lee spoke to him, there were no threatening words.
But Ip said when she spoke to Yuen on November 20, the perception on her part was that she was being threatened. "That was my honest feeling and I was brooding over it for a few weeks," Ip said.
"The police offered to assist me and I have accepted their offer," she said.
