  • Update from RTHK:
    Police said on Monday that an officer holding up a reporter's identity card in front of a rolling camera on Sunday does not suggest a problem with discipline in the force, even though management had conceded such behaviour is wrong when a similar incident happened last month.

    But on Monday, Kwok – who leads the force's public relations bureau – said the fact that the behaviour had been repeated did not demonstrate a disciplinary problem among frontline officers.

    On RTHK's Chinese-language "Talkabout" show, he said the police did not know at the time that the man was a reporter, despite video footage suggesting officers were fully aware of this. Stand News says the reporter told officers where he was from, and he was displaying his press credentials.

    That incident last month also happened to a stand news reporter btw
