The Council of the university students’ Association of Hong Kong “mourned” the mob who attacked the police and aroused public anger. On July 13, the University of Hong Kong issued a statement strongly condemning the conduct of the student union and announcing that it would no longer recognize the role of the student union in the University. The University sent a letter on the 14th asking the HKU to move out of the student union complex within 7 days.
According to the report, the Council of the university students’ Union of Hong Kong (HKU) passed a “motion” to “mourn the assailants of the police”, which attracted criticism from all walks of life. The HKU apologized for resigning, failed to calm the storm, and the incident continued to ferment. The University issued a statement on the 13th that it would no longer recognize the status of the HKU, and also pointed out that it would set up a special team to coordinate and handle all kinds of student affairs.
In a statement, HKU strongly condemned the serious misconduct of the Council of the university students’ Association of Hong Kong in openly beautifying violence, describing it as challenging the moral bottom line of society and damaging the reputation and interests of the whole HKU community. The university will seriously investigate the student council incident in accordance with University procedures, and further deal with the students involved according to the investigation results.
