- Story Text: Hong Kong police on Friday (September 20) said they could not agree with the findings of a recent report by human rights watch group Amnesty International accusing their ranks of misconduct and torturing protesters, citing "missing links".
Hong Kong police public relations superintendent Tsu Chun-Chung defended police actions and vowed that they would look into "every single allegation and case very seriously and professionally."
Amnesty on Friday said a field investigation had documented "an alarming pattern of the Hong Kong Police Force deploying reckless and indiscriminate tactics, including while arresting people at protests, as well as exclusive evidence of torture and other ill-treatment in detention."
