HK Chief Executive Denounces Vandalism of MTR Stations|林鄭再開記者會 譴責示威者暴力破壞港鐵

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced last week that a controversial bill that would allow extraditions to China has been withdrawn. However, protests against the government are continuing, resulting in clashes between the police and community. On Sept. 10, Lam held a press conference, where she denounced the damage to the MTR by anti-government protesters and expressed her opposition to U.S. Congress' "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act," saying Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China and foreign congresses should not interfere in Hong Kong's affairs.

Hong Kong MTR stations have been trashed. This has gone far beyond the extradition bill protests and demonstrations.

Last week, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced that a controversial bill that would allow extraditions to China has been withdrawn. On Sept. 10, she held a press conference, where she denounced the vandalism to MTR stations by protesters, saying violence will only continue to divide society. She also said that after a dialogue platform was established, many Hong Kong residents took the initiative to contact the government, although she didn't reveal the content of the dialogue. Several days ago, Hong Kong's richest person Li Ka-shing urged political leaders to extend an olive branch to young people. Lam said she does not comment on personal statements. She also said all illegal behavior will be investigated.

The government of the special administrative region has always insisted on the rule of law. The rule of law is a very important core value of Hong Kong. I must insist that illegal actions must be investigated according to law.

The United State Congress may pass the "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act" later this month. Demosisto Secretary-General Joshua Wong and singer Denise Ho will attend a congressional hearing to provide first-hand information on the protests. Lam said the U.S. Congress proposed similar bills in the past, but never passed them. She added that the U.S. has no authority to interfere in Hong Kong's internal affairs.

The U.S. Congress is interfering in the Hong Kong special administrative region's affairs by passing a local draft bill. I cannot condone this. (Hong Kong) is a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China, so foreign congresses should not interfere in any way in Hong Kong's internal affairs.

During the press conference, Chinese journalists asked Lam about a proposal by netizens to have protesters pay for the damage they committed to public facilities. She responded the government will first take care of labor scheduling and protection to minimize the destruction. However, Hong Kong's MTR system is extensive, and it will not be easy to dispatch labor and take preventative measures against protests that could pop up at any time. Lam therefore urged Hong Kong society to help to maintain stability and calm.

香港特首 林鄭月娥表示:「港鐵車站受到瘋狂式的破壞,已遠遠超越反對逃犯修例,以及示威訴求。」

上週宣布撤回"逃犯條例"後,香港特首林鄭月娥,再度召開記者會,對於近期港鐵遭瘋狂式破壞,她公開譴責,強調暴力只會讓香港社會繼續對立。 不過她強調,對話平台成立後,已收到不少民眾主動與港府連絡,至於對話內容,暫不公開。對於日前香港首富李嘉誠公開呼籲,希望港府對年輕人"網開一面"說法,林鄭月娥表示,不評論個人發言,但話鋒一轉,強調違法一定依法追究。

香港特首 林鄭月娥表示:「特區政府一直堅持的就是法治,法治是香港的一個很重要的核心價值,我還是堅守違法的行為,一定會依法追究。」

另外,針對美國國會,可能在這個月,通過"香港人權與民主法案",香港眾志秘書長黃之鋒,和香港歌手何韻詩等人,都將出席美國聽證會,提供香港反送中運動第一手訊息。林鄭月娥回應,過去美國國會也曾提出類似法案,但從未通過,並反批美國無權也,不該介入香港內部事務。

香港特首 林鄭月娥表示:「美國國會通過當地的草案,你就介入香港特區的事務,我絕不認同,(香港)也是中華人民共和國的一個特別行政區,所以外國議會不可以任何形式,干預香港特區的內部事務。」

記者會中,有大陸記者提問到,有網友表示,被破壞的公設,應該統統都由示威者買單,林鄭月娥則回答,香港政府會先做好人力調度,以及防護布署,儘可能的降低所有被破壞的程度,而由於香港地鐵的系統龐大,人力調度不容易,很難防範示威者隨機的行動,因此,她也呼籲,一起維持香港社會的穩定與平靜。
