Chan hits out at cops in UN speech

Central Station | 17 Sep 2019

Pro-democracy lawmaker Tanya Chan Suk-chong has appealed to the United Nations for its support on convening an urgent session and establishing a Commission of Inquiry to ensure human rights for the people of Hong Kong.

She spoke to the UN's Human Rights Council as a representative of UN Watch.

She mentioned a list of incidents involving alleged excessive use of force by the police. They including the incidents in which a woman was shot in the eye allegedly by a beanbag round and passengers who were attacked at Prince Edward station on August 31.

"The police call protesters 'cockroaches'," she said yesterday.

"Brutal crackdowns and preemptive violence against them are hence regarded as acceptable pest control to curb free speech."
