HKSAR gov't, police strongly condemn radical protesters' violent acts

On Sunday, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government and police strongly condemned violent acts by some protesters in Hong Kong overnight.

Violent behaviors recurred during the protests, said the HKSAR government in a statement. Some protesters violently charged police stations, vandalized vehicles and set fires in various places, it added. 

In addition, protesters were suspected to have deliberately damaged the national flag, breaching the National Flag & National Emblem Ordinance, said the government. 

“The government strongly condemns the radical protesters who disregarded the law and order, blatantly breached the public peace, and even challenged the national sovereignty,” said a government spokesperson. 

"The police will strictly enforce the law. Violent protesters who breached the law should also be brought to justice," the statement said.
