29th July 2019 – (Hong Kong) A new video has surfaced on social media that shows a news clips by NOW TV being allegedly removed and censored after the 21st July Yuen Long incident. Netizens were furious after seeing the exposed video and accused police of working in cahoots with the mobs in white.
At 5.11am on 22nd July 2019, Mr. YAU Nai Keung, Assistant District Commander (Crime)(Yuen Long) told media reporters that no one was armed with offensive weapons. At 1.45am earlier, NOW TV filmed a different group of men in white in a car park armed with steel rods.
However, a 7-minute video clip recorded by NOW TV shows that at 4.11am, senior police officers including Yau allegedly met up with several elderly people dressed in white inside a temple in Yuen Long before the media interview.
There is no evidence to show that the men in white spotted in the temple were related to the brutal attack at Yuen Long MTR Station that took part on 21st July. The meeting could be an emergency meeting between local villagers and police officers after the attack in Yuen Long.
The following is the video uploaded by an unknown netizen. Clip between 1.00 to 1.54 exposed the alleged meeting between police officers and men in white. The sequence of events that took place was compiled by the netizen and they might be isolated and unrelated to each other.
NOW TV has also not confirmed if the clip was censored because of pressure from police. Netizens and civilians made the accusations based on their assumption as the meeting details in the temple were not known.
