Pro-China suspects wear masks and shower caps at ID parade

Pro-China elements who had been caught attacking TV reporters in the streets of Hong Kong last year were allowed to obscure their faces with masks and shower caps during a police identification parade.  This revelation came after the announcement by the police last week that they did not have enough evidence to prosecute the alleged offenders, despite ample video footage from various media outlets and numerous eye witnesses.  Needless to say, the victims were unable to identify their assailants in the parade.  This is yet another blatant attempt by the Hong Kong authorities to protect China’s foot soldiers acting in the interests of their Beijing masters.

A similar scandal occurred last month when seven policemen accused of assaulting a handcuffed activist refused to co-operate in an identification parade.  The then-police commissioner Andy Tsang said the accused policemen had every right not to co-operate.
