【Police strongly condemn Apple Daily for distorting facts with their biased report 】
At around 3:30 PM, a man drove a motorcycle, which displayed a flag bearing the words “Liberate Hong Kong, Revolution of Our Time” into several Police officers on duty in Wan Chai. Three officers sustained hand and knee injuries respectively as a result. The 23-year-old male driver was arrested for “furious driving” and breaching the National Security Law.
Nonetheless, Apply Daily reported that the motorcycle was “suddenly blocked by anti-riot Police” and “the driver was dragged onto the ground”.
Online videos clearly shows the driver refused to obey officers’ instructions and showed no intention of decelerating. He flagrantly crashed his motorcycle into the officers, posing a serious threat to public safety. The Police severely condemn such a reckless, violent and dangerous act. It is deeply regrettable that Apple Daily whitewashed the sins of the rioter and deliberately maligned the Police with their biased reporting.
The Police severely condemn Apple Daily for distorting facts and disregarding journalistic ethics. The Police will stand up to the malicious attacks, enforcing the law impartially and fearlessly.
