2. 行政長官不但在記者三番四次提問下否認警察在星期三濫用武力，她更 （1）認同警方當日的部署，（2）將責任推卸到示威者身上 （而警察的可恥行徑大多是在沒有被挑釁下作出的），及 （3）聲稱對警察濫權的指控為誹謗。
The Progressive Lawyers Group has heard the Chief Executive. For the reasons below, we are angry and disappointed at her response. We will continue to march tomorrow and urge you all to join us. We are meeting at 2:15 pm at the Victoria Park Fountain at the Causeway Bay entrance of the park, opposite Windsor House, where you will see our flags flying high.
Together with you, we made history last week. We very much believe we can again and that we should.
Date: Sunday, 16 June
Time: March starts at 3pm
Meeting Point: Victoria Park
1. The Chief Executive did not apologise for the complete chaos she has created. So many people here and abroad have had to expend such great efforts and time to fight her initial foolishness and then repeated stubbornness. A sincere apology would have been the least she could have offered.
2. Not only did she refuse to acknowledge that there was excessive and / or unprovoked use of force by the Police on Wednesday when repeatedly asked about this, she (1) actually endorsed the Police’s operation (2) put the blame for all the Police’s conduct on the protestors (when much reprehensible conduct was wholly unprovoked) and (3) said the characterisation of there having been an excessive use of force by the Police was defamatory.
3. Many of the matters she raises now in her defence were either wholly ignored or vehemently denied by her and her officials previously. For example, Taiwan mentioned right from the start that it would not seek any extradition under the Government’s bill and opponents thereof therefore also said right from the start that there is therefore no urgency to the Bill and greater consultation should be made. This was roundly ignored by the Government. The shamelessness with which she NOW invokes this as a reason for suspending the Bill and NOW says there should be consultation is astounding.
