Baptist uni student leader demands police apologyLocal | 16 Aug 2019 4:00 pm
Baptist University student union head, Keith Fong Chung-yin, who was arrested for buying 10 laser pointers in Sham Shui Po last week, today "strongly condemned" the police for abusing their powers and for political suppression. He demanded that police apologize.
Fong said in a press briefing that after being detained for 47 hours and “refused to be bailed,” he was released unconditionally by the police.
He said on August 6, several black-clad men suddenly charged at him and grabbed his neck, and he resisted believing it to be a robbery attempt.
Fong criticized the policemen for not displaying clearly their warrant cards.
He said he bought 10 laser pointers, that are stationery, and legal, not the laser “guns” that the police claimed them to be.
