Senior Marine Police Inspector Lin Wanyi fell into the sea while chasing the smuggling, and the body was later recovered. Following a few days ago, a fire department officer was suspended pending investigation for allegedly “riding” Lin Yuen-yee for his online remarks, and a police officer stationed at the Ma On Shan Police Station was suspended for mentioning “death” on Facebook. A correctional assistant of the Correctional Services Department also made similar remarks and was suspended pending further investigation.
Recently, the internal communication group of the police circulated that a police officer stationed at the Ma On Shan Police Station posted a message on Facebook after Lin Yuen-yee’s death in the post, saying: “Death”. It is understood that the police officer concerned has been suspended pending investigation.
The police confirmed to Position News that someone was found to have made improper remarks on the Internet about a senior inspector who had died on duty. In the incident, a male police officer had been suspended and under investigation. The Police Force stated that it attaches great importance to the conduct of its personnel. Any personnel committing a violation of discipline will not be tolerated or tolerated by the police and will be dealt with strictly.
In addition, it is pointed out that a correctional assistant of the Correctional Services Department also posted a post on Instagram a few days ago, saying: “One person has an accident and millions of people are happy and happy.”
When the Correctional Services Department responded to the “Stance News” enquiry, it stated that it had referred the case to the police for follow-up investigation.And according to the established mechanism, the relevant staff will be suspended. The Correctional Services Department also stated that it attaches great importance to the integrity and ethics of correctional officers and has strict requirements on discipline.Any person who violates disciplines and laws will be dealt with seriously and will not be tolerated. The police also stated that they have received relevant information from the Correctional Services Department and are now understanding the incident.
The first two firefighters from the Niu Chiwan and Braemar Hill Fire Station had left messages on social platforms: “Celebrate with Champagne”, “Tell the truth you have today’s true value to death”, “Doesn’t count as self “Doing evil”, “Knowing about eating “Haidilao”, it means going to the bottom of the sea to eat, is it fresh enough?” and so on. Then they were complained, and the two were suspended for investigation.
As of today, at least four disciplined service personnel have been suspended by the department because of the online remarks made by the female policewoman Lin Wanyi. However, people in the past were involved in inappropriate speech, and the consequences were completely different.
On November 8th of the previous year, the University of Science and Technology student Zhou Zile, who fell and was seriously injured in the parking lot of Sheung Tak Village, Tseung Kwan O, passed away. Residents from many districts went out to mourn. A group of riot police officers yelled to the residents that night: “Take revenge!” , “It’s just a catch!”, “We celebrate with champagne today!”, “Congratulations!” The police only reprimanded the relevant personnel afterwards (relevant reports).
In October of the previous year, Leung Wai-hsiung, the then Deputy Director of the Fire Services Department, described it as “a mob who ignores laws and regulations” many times in an internal lecture of the department, which caused controversy.
