Alleged killer and security chief snub challenge by victim's mother

Local | 20 Oct 2021 11:29 am

The mother of murder victim Amber Poon Hiu-wing criticized killer Tony Chan Tong-kai and security chief Chris Tang Ping-keung to be "too timid," after they refused to meet her at Tamar on Wednesday morning.

The mother challenged Chan, Tang, Peter Koon Ho-ming and lawmakers for a "face-to-face confrontation" outside the government headquarters.

But none of them accepted her challenge. The mother ended up talking to the press on her own.

“Heaven is watching what people do,” she said.

She criticized those she had named by saying they were too timid to meet her, and slammed the Hong Kong police for offering a safe house to a murderer.

She also berated DAB lawmakers Starry Lee Wai-king and Holden Chow Ho-ding for making use of her in the past.

“They said they would help me and they found a way. What did they do in the end? They didn't even respond to my phone calls,” she said.

Asked if she will take the case to Taiwan, the mother said it should be the SAR government that negotiates with Taiwanese authorities.

Earlier, Tang called upon Taiwanese authorities to show mercy to the mother. 

In an interview with media HK01, Tang asked Taiwan to respond to the mother's demands. 

“I have a daughter too. I know how it feels,” he said.

Tang said Chan is willing to give himself up to Taiwan, but it was the Taiwanese authorities that banned him from going to the island.

Tang said Chan has finished serving sentence for money laundering in Hong Kong and is a “free man.” He has the right to decide on what step to take next.
