News Service Email to promote the dignity of the Chief Executive Officer
The demonstrations against the amendments continued, but the Hong Kong Government has recently died down. The Chief Executive has not made public appearances in the past few days. The Government Information Office issued an internal e-mail to a number of public organisations on the day before (25th), hoping that the relevant organisations would contact the overseas parties or put forward “much needed perspective" in their daily work to help maintain Hong Kong’s calm. And a rational atmosphere. The e-mail also includes an official position for institutional reference, including “to maintain the dignity of the Chief Executive" and “to support the police force".
The e-mail was issued in the name of Deputy Director of the Information Services Department, Fibonovich. The article praised the police for their outstanding performance and professionalism and condemned the demonstrators who had blocked the police headquarters.
The Information Services Department responded that the e-mail was intended to explain the position of the authorities to the relevant authorities and did not require the organisation to promote or agree to the content of the e-mail. The emphasis was on the regular communication between the prescription and the stakeholders.
The Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, said that the actions of the demonstrators in the past two weeks have affected the operation of the Government to a certain extent. They do not wish to recur and call on the demonstrators to express their views in a calm, rational and peaceful manner. When asked whether the Government has partially stopped, Mr Cheung pointed out that civil servants are loyal to their duties and will work at home through computers and mobile phones. The operation of the Government has not stopped. Zhang Jianzong pointed out that the government is concerned about developments and has held a brainstorming session. It has pledged to focus on people’s livelihood and economic development in the next three years, as well as rebuilding mutual trust. It will also strengthen communication with young people and hope that all sectors of society will let go of their differences.
