A 15-year-old teenager was charged with attempted wounding, possession of an offensive weapon, and possession and use of a possibly offensive weapon two days after an officer was injured in the face and neck by corrosive chemical thrown from a height on March 2.
The case was mentioned at the Fanling Juvenile Court on Mar 6. The teenager’s bail was denied, and was remanded in custody until May for the next mention.
The defence complained that the police slapped the teenager and used excessive force during the detention.
The teenager now suffered from ear damage, which caused him to not be able to hear clearly when the judicial clerk was reading out the accusations.
