Peter Lai, the former Secretary for Security, thinks that using riot police to tackle disorder is nothing special. They patrol everywhere in fact.


Whether it is suitable for the government to request riot police to tackle demonstration participants is now a hot issue under dispute. Chief Executive Election candidate Henry Tang recently alleged that his competitor CY Leung once said Hong Kong would eventually need to dispatch the anti-riot police and utilize tear gas to handle protests against the legislation of national security law in 2003.


Such accusation is astonishing to many people as Hong Kong citizens should enjoy the freedom of assembly or demonstration. But Peter Lai said, “It is a common practice to dispatch riot police. Violence in an appropriate degree is sometimes essential or the society may suffer from instability.” He thought that citizens should not fear for the word ‘riot police’. ‘Riot police’ actually refers to Police Tactical Unit that people can commonly see on the street. ((strong background info))


James Tien, the former Chairman of the Liberal Party, avouched that someone might once suggest asking People's Liberation Army (PLA) to combat the people who protested against the legislation of national security law. Peter Lai said that he had never considered about PLA. However, he refused to comment whether those demonstrants should be tackled by PLA or riot police, stating that he was not in Hong Kong at that time.
