拘留

【記一巴打過嚟的香港警察 】
- 面對日漸腐壞的香港,誰還可以說跟自己無關?

石地同眠的四十三小時
記得我們那位被捕的朋友嗎?昨晚我們一班朋友見面,亦聽她憶述星期一晚在北角街上被捕及扣留的四十三小時。
跟她同一囚室的其他六名女子。其中一個是剛graduate 的大學生,當晚跟另一被捕男性朋友往北角食麥當奴,真的只係食麥當奴而已。

由於連遊行都唔係,當時無想過找律師,警察喝問他們為什麼住康怡要嚟到北角咁遠食麥當奴,她回答:「我真係去食麥當勞咋阿(sir) 」未講完sir 字就俾阿sir 一巴打落塊面...

另外一行六人是剛食完晚飯回家,其中一人見到防暴警察時,即時舉起雙手,作出投降的姿勢,卻即時被一群防暴警察狂毆,這個朋友被打至嚴重流血要即時送院,在扣留的日子大家都無再見過他。
當時,六人中的其中一位外籍人士上前阻止,被警棍打至流血,卻因為是外籍人士,最終竟然未被拘捕。外籍人士的女友當時亦立刻上前保護那位作投降狀而被毆打的男性朋友,即時被警察從後以膝頭壓住拘捕。

另外一個則是正在離開的義務急救員,往鰂魚涌方向回家時,從後被捉住。
回到警署後,我們的朋友亦被帶往停車場去落口供,警察不停勸她們不要等律師「又浪費律師費,我又要陪你等,又要遲收工,你都無嘢講㗎啦,搵律師做咩呢」


雖然大部份人都是在路邊被捕(不是在路中心)只是被控好輕的非法集結,但全部都要被搜屋,當然所有家人都好驚 - 大概是要達到這個目的吧。

整件事都實在太瘋狂,還有好多細節下次再寫。

瘋狂之中亦有點可愛,叫我們嘩嘩聲。

問她們出來後有保持聯絡嗎,她說有,你猜是怎樣找回大家呢?

原來是每一個人背一個人電話。

還記得當晚我們擔心了一整天是否該在警署外等她保釋,當時律師亦不知道是否要四十八小時,夜麻麻在北角外邊等唔等好。

另一邊廂,她們七個竟然因為知道被釋放時間將會因為手續原因有差別,而想了個辦法等齊人 - 她們當時決定若自己被釋放後,在外面等半個鐘,等唔到下一個就散水。

結果竟然等到所有人。

這種荒誕的事,怎麼每天發生在我們的城市裹。
類似的新聞都好多,但不要因為每日發生就習慣起來,錯的事,每一件都不能容忍。
希望我們都可以在以後漫長的道路上,繼續心存愛、希望並一直互相守護及同行。

也謝謝一眾義務律師,日間上班很忙,近日晚晚無得瞓。

[The night she got slapped on the face by a police]
and the 43 hours of sharing a cold concrete floor.

Remember our friend who got arrested and detained? She recounted her 43 hours in detention cell to us last night.

Among the 6 other girls who shared a detention cell with her, one was a recent University graduate who was REALLY on her way to McDonald's with a guy who also got arrested.
Since they were not even protesting, they didn't thought of calling lawyer, Police asked them again "Why come all the way to North Point for MCD when you live in Kornhill?" She answered "I am just really on my way to Mcdonald's, Ah (SIR)" She got slapped on her face before finishing the sentence.

Another six were on their way home after dinner, one of them put his hands up right away when seeing the riot police, but got pressed down and beaten by police!
He was injured and bleeding, so was sent to hospital immediately, nobody saw him again during that 48 hours.

Among these 6 was a European guy who went up to stop them beating their friend, but was not arrested because he was foreigner. The foreigner's girlfriend went up to protect the guy who was beaten by a group of riot police, but was being pressed from the back violently and arrested.

Back at the police station, our friend was mysteriously brought to the carpark for statement taking, the police kept persuading them not to call police "SEE you're wasting time, you won't say anything anyway, you are wasting money, and WE CANNNO GET OFF WORK just because we need to stay here and wait for lawyers with you"

Even though most of them were arrested on the pavement, not even in the middle of the road, but all had home-search, their family of course all gone crazy, and perhaps this is the purpose of it all - to create fear.

Among all this craziness, there were some cute little moments too.
We asked if they kept in touch after being released, they said yes, guess how they found each other?
Turned out they each memorised ONE person's phone number.

This is still happening everyday, people got beaten indiscriminately, police covering their numbers, arresting people who are on their way home....
This is not something that would be solved by "let's all go home, and pretend nothing went wrong" It is precisely because all this is happening, that we should be voicing out our demands towards our government.

P.S. SO MUCH respect for our lawyer friends who are helping out these people for free
