(中國人權捍衛者— 2019年10月5日)香港行政長官林鄭月娥應撤銷其運用緊急權力決定訂立的《禁止蒙面規例》 (又稱“禁蒙面法”),該法於10月5日午夜正式生效。該規例援引自緊急法,迴避了立法程序​​,試圖阻止人們上街抗議,這無疑是一個危險的先例。當局製定了一個適用範圍過於廣泛的法規,也侵犯了《基本法》、《香港人權法案條例》和《公民權利和政治權利國際公約》所保障的和平集會權(ICCPR)。

Comments Off on 香港政府應立即停止警方暴力,進行獨立調查,依法追究責任

 

(人權捍衛者 – 2019年8月22日)香港警方對反送中運動抗爭者的強勢作為,直接威脅到香港人的集會自由,表達自由與人身安全,香港政府必須立即停止警方濫用暴力,依法追究責任。香港政府強推“逃犯條例”(又稱送中條例)修法,引發香港民間一連串的反送中運動,從6月9日103萬人示威遊行,已於2月未見降溫趨勢。雖然香港特首林鄭月娥宣布擱置修訂“逃犯條例”,但對於反送中運動的五大訴求,特首林鄭只回應送中條例已「壽終正寢」,但堅持不用「撤回」法律用詞。許多香港民眾不滿港府拒絕妥協,持續走上街頭進行抗爭。警察以武力強勢鎮壓,驅離抗爭者,甚至有黑道人士以暴力介入,毆打傷害民眾。根據不完全的報導統計,至8月15日為止,這場抗爭事件總共造成748人被捕,年齡介於15至61歲間,2人失明,5人自殺,更有多人在街頭上到不明人士砍傷。
