Lau Chak-kei (Chinese: 劉澤基; pinyin: Liú Zéjī; born 1973), a Hong Kong Police station sergeant who became famous after pointing a shotgun towards protesters in[1][2] Kwai Chung on 30 July 2019 during the 2019 Hong Kong protests. He was promoted as a "hero" by the Chinese government[3][4] and become a KOL in China with nearly a million fans.[5]

2019 Hong Kong protests[edit]

Lau Cha Kei pointed his gun against citizens in Kwai Chung on 30 July 2019.

Lau Chak-kei gained infamy in Hong Kong after pointing a shotgun, loaded with beanbag rounds, at protesters in Kwai Chung on 30 July 2019, relatively early in the protests. This act led him to become a widely hated figure in Hong Kong. However, he was hailed as a hero in mainland China.[6]

His actions in Kwai Chung were defended by the Hong Kong Police Force. He appeared on Xinwen Lianbo, a flagship news programme on China Central Television (CCTV), on 14 September 2019, alongside assistant district commander of Mong Kok Police Station, Lee Chung-kin.[7]

Lau was subsequently invited by the Chinese government to participate in the 70th anniversary of the People's Republic of China among about 10 Hong Kong policemen.[8][9]

Views[edit]

Lau Cha Kei has made several controversial speeches. Critics have considered his speeches as promoting human rights violations and hate speech.[10][11]

  • He said curfew should be imposed in Hong Kong for easy control.[12]
  • He claimed the judges in Hong Kong encourage people to be criminal.[12]
  • He refers to pro-democratic protesters as "cockroaches".[13]
  • He said journalists should not be legal to work without a licence issued by the government.[12][14]
  • He said the anti-mask law that bypassed the Legislative Council as "very effective".[14]
  • On October 14, 2019, he said Civil Human Rights Front and LIHKG should be regarded as terrorist organisations.[14]

Lau is highly active on Weibo, a social media network popular in mainland China, but not in Hong Kong. As of late October 2019, he had over 867,000 Weibo followers. Pan-democratic lawmakers have questioned whether his political remarks on Weibo constitute breaches of the Civil Service Code and the Police General Orders, which forbade "speaking publicly [...] on matters of a political nature other than in the course of official duties".[13]

Following the District Council elections on 24 October 2019, during which the pro-democratic camp won a landslide victory, Lau falsely claimed on his Chinese social media account that 1.6 million ballots were invalid.[15] The Registration and Electoral Office subsequently issued a press release rejecting these claims.[16] Pro-Beijing Hong Kong lawmaker Michael Tien criticised Lau for "inciting conflict between Hong Kong and the mainland", spreading rumours, and criticising government officials while working as a civil servant.[15]
