事發當時,英達身穿明顯標示記者身份的反光衣,並配戴標有「媒體(Press)」的頭盔和掛著記者證。所站位置與示威者不同,和一群媒體站於媒體區,不可能被誤認為示威者。英達的律師已準備向港警當局提告。

With a press pass, Ms. Veby had been wearing a highly visible vest and a helmet with the word “press” written on it when she was injured. She was standing in the media area, not amid the protesters, meaning that the police officers should have been able to tell her apart from the crowd. The attorney will file criminal complaints against the Hong Kong police.

目前,香港民眾和警方的對峙愈演愈烈,在101日達到高峰,一名17歲高中生遭射實彈射中左肺,流出大量血跡後送醫。

Tensions between Hong Kong protesters and police officers have been soaring. On Oct.1, a 17-year-old student was shot by a police officer with a live bullet to his chest.
