Junius Ho accused of supporting Yuen Long mobLocal | 22 Jul 2019 11:42 am
More than 1,000 teachers, students and alumni of Queen's College have put their names to a signature campaign condemning pro-government lawmaker Junius Ho – an alumnus of the school – accusing him of supporting gangs of men who attacked MTR passengers and bystanders in Yuen Long last night, RTHK reports.
Hundreds of men, dressed in white t-shirts, were seen chasing and hitting people at random, leaving dozens injured, some seriously.
In videos circulating online, Ho can been seen applauding and giving men in the streets of Yuen Long the “thumbs up” and calling them "heroes.''
He called in to an RTHK programme on Monday to say it is normal for him to shake hands with people he meets while out and about, and he praised the people of Yuen Long for "safeguarding" their district.
The signature campaign condemns Ho for "siding with mobs" and describes his behavior as "unethical" and "shameful.''
The petition calls on Legco to impeach the legislator, and urges alumni to lodge formal complaints with the Law Society which Ho is a member of.
It also calls on the Queen's College Old Boys' Association to suspend Ho's membership.
