Arrest by the police is obviously political persecution

 

 

Justice and Peace Commission of HK Catholic Diocese believes that today's arrest by the police is obviously political persecution.

 

The Comission condemns and makes the following three demands:

1. The Government must respond to the five major demands made by the public during the anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill campaign. It must stop all arrests until the establishment of an independent commission is set up and this commission reports.

2. Repeal the bad public security law, and restore Hong Kong people's freedom of procession and assembly.

3. Police must immediately return the mobile phones of all arrested persons in order to ensure their privacy.
