Hong Kong Police Force fully co-operate with IPCC Study

     In relation to an interview with a former member of the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) published in a local Chinese newspaper yesterday (January 19), a Police spokesman gave the following response today (January 20):
     Since the IPCC commenced a study on the public order events since June 9, 2019, Police Force have been maintaining close liaison with the IPCC and have professionally facilitated every aspect of the work of the IPCC Special Task Force, including providing required documents, answering their enquiries as well as arranging interviews with specific Police commanders, etc.
     Police regret that the content of the interview may lead to misunderstanding that Police have not been fully co-operative with the IPCC in its study.  Police reiterate that it will continue to fully co-operate with the IPCC Special Task Force in all aspects of its study.
