No death resulted from enforcement actions in the last three months
          The Government today (September 7) seriously clarified that there had been no death resulting from enforcement actions in the last three months. It also dismissed continuous claims that there was death resulting from the incident in the Prince Edward Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Station on August 31.
          Earlier on September 2, the Hong Kong Police Force rejected categorically, in its daily press conference, the rumour which alleged that a protester had been killed during the incident in Prince Edward that night.
          Later in its daily press conferences on September 3 and 5, the Hong King Police Force reiterated again that such rumour was totally false and unfounded.
          The Fire Services Department also stressed yesterday (September 6) that the seven casualties who needed ambulance service at the scene that night were all escorted by ambulance personnel to Lai Chi Kok MTR Station by a specially arranged train, and were conveyed by pre-arranged ambulances to Caritas Medical Centre and Princess Margaret Hospital for treatment.
          Meanwhile, the Hospital Authority has reconfirmed that there were no cases involving death in the MTR incident according to its records.
          "Any online rumour that says otherwise is not only false, but also malicious," a Government spokesman said.
          "It is a deep regret that such irresponsible rumour keeps spreading with the ill intent to mislead general members of the public, and to sow division and discontent in society at a time when the Government is sincerely trying to establish the dialogue platform," he added.
