Riot police scolded peramedics “rubbish” and requested the Director of Fire Services for change of ambulance personnel
When the police officers were arresting protestors in Tuen Mun in the evening, they had a quarrel with the ambulancemen from the Fire Services Department. At that time, paramedics arrived at the scene responding to reports of injuries. However, the riot police refused the ambulance personnel to enter the cordon line.
A police officer questioned the ambulancemen why they called reporters. He also repeatedly stated that he would complain to the Director of Fire Services, and warned that the police could request for a change of ambulance personnel. Besides, the police had filmed the paramedics throughout the entire process.
The police then took the arrested person and told the paramedics that no one was injured. The ambulancemen said the police was a “crook”, as he was still trying to give help to that person. Afterwards, one ambulanceman accused a police officer of yelling at him “rubbish” while another police officer denied so. As he asked whether the one who scolded at him was police, the police officers asked that ambulanceman to leave the scene.
