救急扶危義務急救員被困理工大學的聲明

我們是一群義務急救員,現在仍有逾二十位義務急救員於理工大學內進行人道救援工作。我們對於香港特區政府及警方漠視香港人的合法權益表示憤怒及失望。

我們基於人道立場服務市民,希望為受傷人士提供適切的醫治,遺憾的是我們已沒有足夠的資源去處理不斷出現的嚴重傷勢。目前更嚴峻的問題是,特區政府及警方更以涉嫌暴動的罪名威脅及圍困我們於理工大學。我們懇請各界提供盡力的協助,並重申進行人道救援的義務醫療工作不應構成控告暴動罪行的原因並拘捕。

民主黨立法會議員鄺俊宇收到仍被困在理大內的義務急救員求助,有救護員表示會繼續留守並協助傷者。鄺俊宇指這是赤裸裸的人道危機,急需國際社會關注。現仍有數以十計的救護員盡忠職守,在校內照顧傷者,但警方竟擬以暴動罪檢控他們,鄺俊宇表示,「如果救人都被告暴動,這是國際笑話。」他同時促請國際社會關注仍被困於校內的所有市民,並已聯絡義務律師團隊隨時為有需要的市民提供法律支援。

Statement from the voluntary first aiders providing humanitarian relief

There are still over 20 voluntary first aiders inside Polytechnic University's campus providing humanitarian relief.

We are angered and disappointed by the government and police force's neglect towards the legal rights of people in HK. We are serving the public for humanitarian reasons but we do not have sufficient resources to attend to the increasing number of serious injuries.

Even worse, the government and the police are threatening to charge us for taking part in a riot and are trapping us inside the campus.

We appeal to everyone on the outside to assist us if possible, and we emphasize that providing humanitarian relief in the form of providing voluntary medical services is not the same as participating in a riot and thereby should not be charged for it.

Democratic Party Legislative Councillor Roy Kwong was contacted by the voluntary first aiders inside Polytechnic University for help, the first aiders said they would continue to stay and care for the injured. Roy described the situation as a humanitarian disaster and said the international community should monitor the situation closely. There are still a dozen first aiders caring for the injured and doing their job inside the campus, but the police is threatening to charge them for participating in a riot. Roy said, "if saving lives equales participating in a riot, this would be an international joke!" He hopes the international community will continue to monitor the situation and focus on the people still trapped inside the campus. Roy has already contacted legal teams that would provide pro bono services to those in need.
