Watchdog Hong Kong Police release is mostly officers and accused protesters

Hong Kong police watchdog agents largely exempt from the charge of excessive force against protesters last year, one conclusion is that the protesters more angry they may end who requested an independent investigation. Independent Police Complaints Council, an agency whose members are all appointed by the city leaders and devoid of any real investigative powers, it was a long four-volume report on Friday that police have defended primarily in response to the often violent unrest that Asian financial center rocked last year and has rallied in recent weeks after a break due to the crown steam. Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam has repeatedly said that the IPCC report would help address protesters complaints, although it is estimated that 80% of residents supported the city, independent investigation into police violence – that events play an important requirement for months. Many protesters have accused human rights groups and foreign governments Hong Kong police during protests use violence to torture prisoners and fail to draw on individual officials for their actions. Police have rejected allegations that his officers acted unprofessionally, and very few of them have been suspended or disciplined. The gap between demonstrators and police only a few months to harden on rails, and continues to be a problem. Just this week the head of the official Chris Tang Police said the use of pepper spray and intimidation against the press during a protest on Sunday, is not desirable ‘the IPCC report released Friday defended mostly the police, saying that “room for improvement” was in terms of how it comes to some high-profile incidents in the tense months of June, July and August. It ‘also accused the protesters several times for inciting the police response, almost even organized units protesters were familiar with the power to propose will apply lethal force in order to preserve the law. “Gathered by the facts in this study, we can see that the use of force by the police in recent months of protest was in response to the action illegal demonstrators and for the protection of themselves and others when they” attacked by violent protesters, the conclusion of the report said. The main conclusions of the IPCC report: the report said the use of force by the police a “reaction” to the protesters with “guerrilla attacks” is that they were after “accompanied to the border of violence and vandalism against terrorism . ” extensive use of tear gas during protests, has recommended the setting of the IPCC, a panel of scientific and medical experts advise police if their tear gas and pepper are litter within “acceptable toxicological limits for use in the streets of Hong Kong. ” it is recommended that the review of police training to avoid the use of force in connection, surveillance information in real time, and rapid steps to climb.

Also recommended is involved in an accreditation process for commanders and rank-and-file police officers in public order. It says there should be better communication between the police and firefighters to be, because a 15-minute delay in paramedics the Prince Edward subway station in August 31 allows, in 2019, it gave rise to rumors that protesters have died, fueling more anger.

This is not only the basis of a request to know the truth, is seen as a very important gesture and concessions account for Administration Carrie Lam, the beginning of a process of reconciliation “. The conclusions of the report can also be a new wave of fuel protests arise stop after the mass demonstrations pandemic. One of its five key demands is for a formal independent investigation Commission, which has the legal authority to issue search warrant, compel testimony and contempt witnesses if they would not cooperate. Last year, the enormous pressure put on the historical clashes city police, who had to respond to hundreds of often violent demonstrations over the city during more than six months. Facing increasingly angry at the forefront protesters throwing Molotov cocktails and stones and, in some cases oscillating rods and metal utensils, the officers were aggressive in diversion operations. Numerous videos of disputes – an officer, a motorbike into a crowd of protesters, some swinging batons to those caught in the subway or riding violent pepper spray protesters in the face – went viral and prompted widespread anger against the police. Police denied a report by Amnesty International, according to officials, beaten and “tortured” the protesters still detained, but also critical of the way in which the waste treated probes rape and sexual assault allegations by protesters. The discontent of the Hong Kong Police rose to 65.1% in November, at the height of the protests, has jumped from only 28.1% before the protests began in June, according to public opinion research Hong Kong Institute. A survey of demonstrators by the Chinese University of Hong Kong conducted found that by the middle of July “expressed dissatisfaction with the protesters management of the police” had to meet the most important motivating factor for the protesters in the streets. The protesters called for an independent inquiry totally rejected the idea that the IPCC was quite independent, or had the political will to sanction individual officials. A group of experts appointed by the foreign government withdrew to consult after “finally determined that a key deficit in the powers was the ability and obvious skill IPCC independent investigation.” However, Lam and their supporters in Beijing, declined to criticize some officers for discounts and allow an independent review. Instead, they have repeatedly praised the police actions and defends the force, while protesters condemned the behavior. Dennis Kwok, a legislator in favor of democracy, said on Friday that the IPCC has “no credibility.” Without a credible investigation that comes to the truth, he said, “there can be no reconciliation.”
