Police stringently follow up on suspected assault by police officers
     Police are highly concerned about a case reported by a political party this morning (August 20) in which police officers were suspected to have assaulted a patient in a ward at the North District Hospital at the end of June. The case has now been taken up by the Regional Crime Unit of New Territories South for criminal investigation.

     Police reiterate that police officers are never allowed to use abusive force for their own sake. Police will follow up on the case in a fair, just and impartial manner.

     Police also appeal to anyone who has any information on the case to contact the Police.
