< Back

Following is the transcript of remarks made by the Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, after visiting a hawker control officer of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD), who was injured on duty, at the Queen Mary Hospital today (March 16):

Reporter: How do you describe the attack on the FEHD officer and what sort of injuries did he suffer?

Secretary for Food and Health: We are very concerned about the personal safety of our law enforcement officers. In this circumstance, Mr Wu suffered a serious head injury. Despite the very active measures including operation and resuscitation, he is still in critical condition. We had the opportunity to meet Mr Wu's relatives a moment ago. We have explained to them the situation and assured them that we will offer our assistance to them.

Reporter: (on the way the officers handle these cases)

Secretary for Food and Health: I think the Department will certainly review the situation and see what we can do to enhance the training as well as the protection of our front line law enforcement officers. I think the exact circumstances of this particular incident will be clear after the completion of investigation by the Police.
