Starting from June 2019, the Anti-Extradition Bill Movement has been featuring severe violence and rampages. We are stunned to find out that the rioters have access to abundant supplies as in Occupying Central Movement in 2014, that they are also in full gear and well-equipped with radio devices for coordinated actions, and that they can go on riots without worries behind as the 612 Foundation promises to offer financial support once arrested. Besides street violence, the mob have also engaged in cyber violence by setting up doxxing websites and Telegram channels to publish personal details of over 2000 HK Police officers and Pro-establishment individuals. The grieving mother of Chan Yin-lam, the 15-year-old girl who was found dead at sea last September, has had her personal information leaked online and was being harassed by calls in the middle of the night, just because she convinced that her daughter had committed suicide and disagreed to discredit the HK police as the rioters wanted her to do so. With such a chilling effect imposed by the rioters, many Hong Kong people dare not to speak out.
We believe in that evil will never prevail over good. That is why we set up this website “HK Leaks”. We hereby express our sincere gratitude to our supporters and all those who have contributed to our website. Our website has suffered tremendous cyber attacks and suppression of all means from the mob since its launch, however, we make it through. On the contrary, the websites and Telegram channels operated by the mob remain safe and sound. They even made an announcement through Apple Daily to show their contempt for the court's injunction. All these attacks and suppression from the mob is a perfect prove that we are doing the right thing. Indeed, we are the mob-buster. We know it very well that our opponents are so powerful that they can manipulate media and press to distort facts, they resort to violence against those who may not agree with them, and have access to abundant supplies and fund. Nevertheless, we will never kneel down.
We believe in that rule of law is a core value of Hong Kong society. Without rule of law, Hong Kong wouldn't have been as prosperous as it is now. Without rule of law, it is impossible for Hong Kong to stand up to the rioters’ rampages, not to mention a bright future. If one could easily achieve his aim by resorting to violence, then the whole society would sink into chaos. In April 2020, a 38-year-old police officer was arrested by the HK police over petrol bomb plot on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, which shows that the Hong Kong Police is indeed upholding the rule of law. It is a blessing for Hong Kong people to have such a professional police force. Those politicians who advocate the false idea of achieving justice by breaking the law are merely deceiving our young generation to serve as cannon-fodder while having their own children stay out of the affair. We believe in rule of law and oppose violence and doxxing in any form. We hereby urge the mob to stop immediately doxxing any Hong Kong police officers and Pro-establishment individuals, and to take down and delete those profiles. We promise that our website would do the same if you do so.
