天主教香港教區宗座署理湯漢樞機及香港基督教協進會主席蘇成溢牧師,對香港特區行政長官林鄭月娥女士就「修例」事件的交代,作出回應。

對特區行政長官林鄭月娥女士昨午於記者會就「修例」事件的交代,我們有以下回應:

1. 行政長官向市民公開道歉,承認自己的不足,我們深表認同。

2. 我們呼籲特區政府從速成立獨立委員會,徹查6.12警民衝突的真相,俾能鑑往知來。

3. 特區政府雖已表明「停止《引渡條例》立法程序」,我們仍呼籲政府考慮廣大市民的強烈要求,明確聲明「撤回法案」。

We wish to make the following response to the Press Conference held yesterday afternoon by Chief Executive Mrs. Carrie Lam on the Extradition Bill:

1. We accept the personal, public apology of the Chief Executive, with the admission of her own inadequacies.

2. We appeal to the SAR Government to launch a thorough independent inquiry into the clashes between the police and the protesters on June 12, as a lesson for the future.

3. While the Government has made clear that the Extradition Bill has already been “suspended”, we still opt for it to make an explicit, public statement that the Bill has been “withdrawn”, to meet the strong demand of the general public.

An appeal regarding the Extradition Bill
Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong

In the face of the extremely turbulent situation of Hong Kong at present triggered by the Extradition Bill, we strongly make the following appeal:

1. We request both the SAR Government and the general public, first and foremost for the wellbeing of Hong Kong society, to exercise due restraint and to seek through peaceful channels a solution to the current impasse which conforms with justice and legal principles.

2. We request the SAR Government not to pass the Extradition Bill hurriedly before adequately addressing the queries and worries of the legal sector and of the general public.

3. We request all Christians to continue praying for Hong Kong society.
