The Association has been made aware of a police arrest incident that involved sexual violence at the early morning on 5th August at the peripheral of Tin Shui Wai police station. Upon the arrest, the protester’s outer and inner garments was forcefully removed, the protester was then carried into the police station in a way that her private parts were exposed to the press and the public for an extended period of time.

We condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the threat and use of sexual violence in any situation.
