警方回應香港科技大學校長史維的公開信

內容: 

就香港科技大學(科大)校長史維於十一月八日向科大全體人員發出的公開信,警方有以下回應:

就十一月四日一名二十二歲男子從將軍澳一停車場墮下,送院接受治療後終告不治的事件,警方深感痛心和難過,並對他的家人和朋友致以深切慰問,希望他們節哀順變。

案件現由東九龍總區重案組接手調查。對於公開信中要求深入及獨立調查事件,警方希望指出,根據《死因裁判官條例》,死因裁判官有權就死亡個案要求警方提交死亡調查報告,死因裁判官亦有權就死亡個案命令進行研訊。警方承諾必定會深入調查事件經過,並建議召開死因研訊,將報告交由死因裁判官決定。如果日後召開死因研訊,所有調查資料都會於庭上公開披露。

就公開信中要求警方及相關部門澄清延誤救援的原因,警方已於十一月八日聯同消防處就事件舉行記者簡報會。就警方阻礙救護車以至延誤救援墮樓男子的指控,警方強調絕無此事。消防處亦就此事作詳細澄清,在處理這宗救護召喚中,該救護車並沒有與現場警務人員接觸,而途中曾遇到巴士及私家車等阻塞,亦未有被警車阻擋去路。

警方高度重視事件,並呼籲目擊者或停泊在上址的司機聯絡警方,提供資料,以釐清事件真相。

In response to the open letter sent to members of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) on November 8 by the President of the HKUST, Professor Shyy Wei, Police have the following responses:

Police expressed profound sadness over the death of a 22-year-old man who fell down in a carpark in Tseung Kwan O on November 4 and subsequently passed away after treatment in a hospital. Police offered the deepest condolences to his family and friends.

The case is under investigation by Regional Crime Unit of Kowloon East. In response to the open letter demanding a thorough and independent investigation into the case, Police wish to point out that, according to the Coroners Ordinance, the coroner has the right to request Police to submit a death investigation report and to order an inquest into the death of a person. Police pledge that Police will investigate into the case in depth. Police also recommend a death inquest and will submit a report to the coroner. If an inquest is to be held, all investigation data will be disclosed in open court.

Regarding the demand for clarifications on the cause of the delay from Police and relevant departments, Police held a press briefing jointly with the Fire Services Department (FSD) on November 8. In response to the accusations that Police obstructed ambulances and caused delay in the rescue of the fallen man, Police stress that the rumours are false and groundless. The FSD also gave detailed clarifications that there was no interaction between the ambulance and police officers at the scene during the ambulance call. The ambulance encountered obstruction from buses and private cars en route but not from police vehicles.

Police attach great importance to the case and appeal to witnesses or drivers parking their vehicles at the aforesaid location to provide information to Police in pursuit of the truth.
