Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, today urged Philippines to demonstrate sincerity in resolving grievances over the 2010 Manila tour bus massacre, in which eight Hong Kong people were killed inside a Hong Thai Travels tour bus.
They were killed in cold blood by a rogue Filipino policeman who hijacked their tour bus. Survivors and relatives of the victims have been demanding an apology from Manila.
Leung said the Hong Kong government would continue to seek a satisfactory response from Philippines.
Earlier this month Hong Kong suspended visa-free travel for Philippine officials over the issue. –RTHK
