Police officers knocks a district councilor against the wall, threaten him to unlock his phone

After the “Universal Siege on Communists Assembly”, there were a large number of police officers in Central. At least 50 civilians were surrounded and intercepted at Pedder Street, including voluntary first aiders, legislative councilor Hui Chi-fung and district councilor NG Siu Hong. During the interception, police officers prohibited first aiders from taking care of a sick arrestee who vomited, swore at district councilor, commanded Ng Siu Hong to unlock his mobile phone screen lock and stop filming. Ng Siu Hong contacted Police Public Relations Branch looking for an explanation, while the PPRB officer replied, ‘We can do nothing about the decision made by frontline officers.’
