Police chief slammed Kowloon District Council over canceled meeting

Local | 14 Oct 2020 6:31 pm

It is absurd and against citizens' expectations for the Kowloon City District Council to refuse his attendance to a meeting tomorrow, police commissioner Chris Tang Ping-keung said.

The district council has notified Tang today that his meeting with district councilors has been canceled after fourteen district councilors requested not to meet with Tang in the council meeting tomorrow.

“The council’s excuse is that 14 pro-democracy councilors claimed that they fear what I have to say in the meeting tomorrow will downgrade the meeting, saying my words are hypocritical and full of lies,” Tang said.

He slammed the council’s decision as absurd, stressing that every time he attends district council meetings, he would only tell the truth in a humble manner.

“Are they scared about me telling the truth?” Tang questioned.

Fourteen pro-democracy councilors of the Kowloon District Council had previously issued a joint letter asking to cancel the meeting with Tang, saying that Tang has been repeating government statements instead of wholeheartedly communicating with councilors during other district council meetings.

They slammed Tang for putting up political shows full of lies.
