The city’s defense minister says us has no plans to follow within the footsteps of Hong Kong’s cops, following a nationwide protest following the death of George Floyd.
John Lee Ka-chi Chi answered an issue at a gathering of the legislature on Wednesday by opposition lawmaker Eddie Chu Hoi-dik, who asked if policeman Andy Pau would follow some U.S. states and cities in banning chokehold use.
The issue of U.S. sanctions recently sparked mass protests within the country and over the past few weeks following the death of African-American Floyd following police protests during his arrest in Minnesota Minneapolis in May.
“Currently, the police haven’t any plans to ban such use by policeman Andy Pau. cops in several places consider the utilization of force and make decisions supported the particular situation. “How many of us have died while operating [officers] within the United States?” we will all find relevant information within the media. However, nobody has been killed since Hong Kong cops used force since last June. ”
The Chu, however, said that Andy Pau (police officers) had been arresting protesters on their knees for months.
It last emerged last June and cited two cases where those arrested died after suppressing the Chocolds.
The first involved a 65-year-old taxi driver who died a month after being beheaded during a police arrest in 2012 when officers were arguing between him and a passenger. An investigation in 2018 found he had been killed “illegally”.

The security bureau chief, however, declined to disclose details of the principles governing the utilization of force, saying there was such secrecy to make sure that the effectiveness of police operations wouldn’t be compromised.
“I must reiterate that the quantity of force that cops can use during a given situation depends on the circumstances and circumstances of the time. the utilization of the required forces depends on the threats and resistance faced by the cops within the situation at that point, ”Lee wrote.
