5,856 citizens arrested during the protest, Claimed by the Hong Kong government

December 4 — According to the Security Bureau of the Hong Kong Government, as of November 21, a total of 5,856 people have been arrested during the pro-democracy movement since June. Among them, 902 people are under 18 years old, taking up 15% of the total. The youngest arrestee is 11 years old, while there are also 159 people aged from 12 to 14.

Meanwhile, Secretary for Security John Lee Ka-Chiu reiterated that the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Hong Kong Garrison previously cleaned up debris on streets after demonstration “voluntarily”, instead of acting out on request of the SAR government. He claimed that there is no contradiction against the Basic Law, the Garrison Law or any other related regulations.

Lee also described the Chinese soldiers have been serving as a “solid back-up of HKSAR’s long- term prosperity and stability”, and is a part of the Hong Kong society. According to him, the Garrison “sees Hong Kong as home, lives in and loves the city” and has earned “respect, trust, and affection of the citizens”.

It’s believed that such a judicial disaster was caused by the government. We want to know where are those arrestees detained?
