Carrie Lam 'Laughing Stock of the World'


Posted by Ed 2 mths ago
AsiaXPAT (Hong Kong) - HK Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, was confronted by an angry Legislative Council yesterday with pro-democracy members hurling abuse at her over alleged police brutality over the past 7 months of protests in Hong Kong.
Lam defended the HK police force claiming they were enforcing the law and accused protesters, media and Legislative Councilors of defaming the police. 
Civic Party boss Alvin Yeung mocked Lam's response stating "You are the laughing stock of the world. Do you know what shame is?" 
Another Councilor demanded Lam resign from her post while others asked that she and her cabinet members reduce their pay.
A number of members shouted abuse at Lam, who sat grim-faced as the meeting descended into chaos and a number of Councilors were forced to leave.
