Hong Kong police arrested a large number of violent persons in Causeway Bay, Central on New Year's Day. Nine of them were charged with possession of tools for illegal use at the Eastern Magistracy today (January 3). The nine defendants included a Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) student and a guest lecturer at the Hong Kong University of Education (HKIEd), who allegedly concealed a crossbow. The Secretary for Education, Mr YEUNG Yun-hung, said that he would follow up the case seriously.
The nine defendants are suspected of possessing dangerous goods such as hammers and razor blades, including a 37-year-old Hong Kong University lecturer, Dr Chan Ka-lam, who holds a doctorate, Hong Kong media reported. Police found two more homemade crossbows at his home after New Year's Day was intercepted outside Woo Chung House in Wan Chai with a homemade crossbow,20 pointy sticks and two sticks.
On the same day, the police, after consulting with the organizers, decided to bring the parade to a close after someone had smashed the shop during the peace march and the organizers could not control it. However, some people refused to disperse, instead of blocking the road. As a result of the chaotic scene, the police intercepted the suspect.
Take the crossbow to the parade. What do you want? At the time of the case, the defence argued that the defendant had a doctorate and that the items in question had been recovered only from his backpack and had not been used unlawfully. The defendant, on bail of HK $20,000, was required to report to the police daily, observe the curfew order and not leave Hong Kong.
Another highly educated defendant was less fortunate. Ren Junming, a 19-year-old sophomore at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, was arrested at the Houghton Playground in Wan Chai at the time of the crime. Police recovered a homemade'iron lotus'(an aggressive weapon on the finger) and 95 homemade'iron Tribulus'from him. The defense said the \"iron lotus\" is only a tool made up of hose and four nails, also known as the defendant is a sophomore, usually also help professor as research assistant, as a court plea.
The prosecution said the defendant, Mr. Ren, had been arrested in September last year for possession of knives, ropes and other tools, and therefore opposed his bail. The magistrate, depending on the seriousness of the case, also decided not to grant him bail.
Since the "“revision storm ", the number of students arrested in the violence is not small, public opinion is that education is a problem. Some of the teachers were caught in the violence, which caused a stir in hong kong. About 80 teachers and teaching assistants were arrested and 123 complaints of teacher conduct were received by the Hong Kong Education Bureau,13 of which ruled teachers'professional misconduct and punished.
Speaking after the Legislative Council meeting on Wednesday, the Secretary for the Environment, Mr Yeoh Yun-hsiung, said it was the responsibility of the Bureau to protect teachers'profession. When a complaint against teacher conduct is received, the Education Bureau will first ask the school to investigate.
When the Education Bureau receives a report from the school, it will follow up and give the teachers an opportunity to respond. Mr Yang said teachers had at least two chances to respond. He said two public school teachers were being investigated and that the Education Bureau had removed them from their posts.
Many of Hong Kong's minor students were incited to participate in the violence during the \"practice storm,\" according to the website. The meeting of the Education Committee of the Hong Kong Legislative Council met on Wednesday, with 17 votes in favour,11 against and no abstentions, and adopted the proposal of the Legislative Council of the New Democratic Party, Mr Yung Hayn, to set up a sub-committee to study the compilation of kindergarten, primary and secondary school textbooks and teaching materials.
Jung stressed that the group was not set up to \"politicize\" education, but to look at all biased or false teaching materials. She said that concerns about teachers'direct political indoctrination required early processing of biased textbooks rather than complaints after they had been instilled.
Mr Cheung said that he did not want teachers to influence students through teaching materials. He also received frequent complaints from parents that the materials were biased.
Speaking at the meeting, the Secretary for Education, Mr Yeung Yun-hsiung, said the Government would support the establishment of a panel discussion as an administrative body. However, because there are too many textbooks, it is difficult for the Education Bureau to examine each one in the Committee. Now, if a complaint is received, the Bureau will conduct an investigation and the principal or director will have professional supervision over the materials.
