Henry Tang Ying-yen revealed last Friday that, Leung Chun-ying had mentioned to use riot police and tear gas in the anti-23 protest in 2003. Former Secretary for Security said, the government needs to take a certain degree of force to control the society.


Former Secretary for Security Peter Lai Hing-ling was asked in the General Assembly of Hong Kong Shue Yan University that, under what circumstances will the People’s Liberation Army and riot police dispatched. He said he never thought to control the society using People’s Liberation Army, but the riot police are often dispatched.


Lai said, dispatched riot police is a normal thing, and public should not politicalize it. He also pointed out that, when riots appear, the law enforcement officers have the right to dispatch riot police which can skip the Executive Council even the Security Department because of urgency.


He believes, public can not completely deny the government using certain degree of military force to suppress demonstrations [are you using "demonstrations" and "riot" interchangeably, or do they mean different things?]; otherwise, Hong Kong will come to the end. “However, to what certain extent is the argument point.” said Lai. [Does he provide an insight into how much force is appropriate?]


Henry Tang‘s revelation of the behind the scenes talk was criticized for failure to comply with the confidentiality agreement of the Executive Council. Lai said, Tang’s action will not be subjected to legal sanctions. [Why not?]


“Politics has always been a “revelation culture”. Not everything cannot be disclosed as it was told not to be disclosed. Because we need to balance the public interest and confidentiality agreement.” said Lai. [How?]
