Police National Security Department strongly condemns claim and act of jumping bail

     The National Security Department (NSD) of the Hong Kong Police Force said today (December 4) that Police have noted someone’s recent claim of jumping Police bail in social media and strongly condemn the irresponsible action which is against and challenging the rule of law.
     The woman concerned was arrested by NSD on August 10, 2020 for suspected “collusion with with external elements”. She was later sentenced to imprisonment for other offences from late 2020 to mid-2021. The woman has been released on bail by NSD. Police also restricted her from leaving Hong Kong according to Schedule 2 of Article 43 of the National Security Law. While on bail, the woman reported back to Police punctually and cooperatively. She earlier disclosed to Police that she wished to study abroad and provided admission documents as a proof. Hence, NSD returned the travel documents to her and extended her bail until December.
     Police urge the woman to immediately turn back before it is too late and not to choose a path of no return. Otherwise, she will bear the stigma of “fugitive” for the rest of her life.
