Abuse of force in Tin Shui Wai by shooting tear gas. Collected 50+ tear gas shells, but it was estimated police fired more than 100 shots.
Following the arrest of a female protester who had her skirt and underwear torn by police officers during the struggle, eleven gender rights advocacy groups, including Gender and Sexual Justice in Action and the Chinese University’s Sex and Gender Concern Group called for a rally outside Tin Shui Wai police station on 5 August to condemn the police over the suspect’s mistreatment. Protesters threw eggs at the police while the police used tear gas to disperse the protesters. Legislator Helena Wong condemned the police over the treatment of the protester, calling the arrest “extremely disrespectful of women”. Responding to the criticism, Yolanda Yu, senior superintendent said that the protester was “struggling vigorously” and therefore required male police officers to subdue her.
