HKSAR Government expresses concern over violent acts causing serious injury to FEHD outsourced service worker
     An outsourced worker of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD), who is a senior, was suspected to be hit in his head by hard objects hurled by masked rioters during his lunch break yesterday (November 13).  He sustained serious injury and is in critical condition. A spokesman for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government is saddened by the incident and said the Government is in contact with family members of the worker through the service contractor and will provide all appropriate assistance to them. Meanwhile, the spokesman expresses outrage over the malicious acts of the rioters and emphasises that police will follow up the case thoroughly to bring offenders to justice.

     Masked rioters conducted extremely dangerous and violent acts in various districts three days in a row, where they wantonly assaulted other members of the public. The acts are outrageous. Police will resolutely take law enforcement actions to restore public order. The HKSAR Government appeals to members of the public to stay calm and rational as well as to stay away from violence to safeguard personal safety.
