Government strongly condemns radical protesters' illegal acts

     A Government spokesman today (September 29) strongly condemns the serious illegal acts of radical protesters.

     Multiple protesters assembled and blocked the roads in Causeway Bay, Wan Chai and Admiralty today, paralysing traffic in various districts and seriously affecting people's lives. A number of radical protesters had gone on a rampage since the afternoon, vandalising numerous public property and the facilities of several MTR stations. They set fires at various places, which were fierce at one point, and hurled petrol bombs on the streets as well as into a MTR station and at the Mong Kok police station, posing a grave threat to police officers, MTR staff and members of the public at the scene.

     The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government severely condemns the radical protesters who completely disregard law and order and whose acts seriously undermine social order. The police will continue to take law enforcement actions resolutely to protect the safety of members of the public and restore public order.
