Police unions accused British MP of naming a superintendent

Four police associations wrote to a British MP, Helen Goodman, asking her to apologise for mentioning a superintendent’s name in a parliamentary debate. She had asked if the UK government would investigate a British superintendent who ordered to use tear gas against HK protesters.

Under Section 8 of the Police Force Ordinance, police associations are established to give advice on matters relating to the welfare and conditions of service rather than to express political views.
