The pro-democracy Civic Party Mei Foo Team issued a statement in regard to the attack on District Councillor Janet Ng Yuet-lan.
On 18 March, the pro-Beijing group collected signatures to support Basic Law Article 23, an anti-subversion bill that is deemed draconian to many.
District councillor Ng witnessed a young man being attacked by the pro-Beijing group. When trying to understand the situation, Ng was also assaulted by the pro-Beijing group members. When chasing the attackers, Ng was shoved onto the ground, causing injuries on her face and arm.
The Civic Party has reported the incident to the police.
Editor Note: The collection of signature in support of Article 23 of Basic Law was initiated by Junius Ho, who has denied any links to white-clad triads who attacked residents in Yuen Long on 21 July 2019 but showed appreciate to them for “defending their home”.
