A statement on behalf of a young HK female who filed a complaint alleging that she was raped by police in police station

Criminal Investigation into Allegation of Rape inside Tsuen Wan Police Station.

We represent Ms X, a young Hong Kong female who recently filed a criminal complaint alleging that she was raped by a number of police officers in Tsuen Wan Police Station.

Ms X made her complaint to police in the expectation that it would be investigated with impartiality, in strict confidence, and with respect for her privacy and dignity. She has made no public comment about the case and has not sought publicity in any way.

Unfortunately, the police investigating Ms X’s case appear to have systematically worked to discredit her and to undermine her complaint. Police have deliberately leaked supposed details of the case in a manner which any objective observer would be driven to conclude, were directed at publicly discrediting Ms X and diminishing any prospect of a successful prosecution.

In light of the recent leaks and statements by the police, Ms X wishes us to issue the following statement.

On a date in October 2019, Ms X took the courageous step of filing a report to police about her rape inside Tsuen Wan Police Station. She filed her report through the proper channels. She subsequently gave a detailed account of the events to police, answering extensive and highly invasive questions. As requested by police, she underwent a forensic medical examination. Ms X further underwent a termination of the ensuing pregnancy and has permitted the taking of a DNA sample from the aborted foetus to assist in identifying at least one of her assailants.

Throughout the investigation, Ms X has repeatedly asked police for updates on the case but the investigating team has refused to provide her with any details whatsoever.

On 4th November, 2019 Ms X learned that police had, without her knowledge or consent, obtained a search warrant to seize her private medical records, including those long pre-dating the allegations. The warrant also allowed police to seize CCTV footage from her private doctor’s clinic for a period of several days before and after the date of the alleged rape.

The Hong Kong Police Force Victims’ Charter guarantees that the privacy and dignity of criminal complainants will be respected at all times. To seek to obtain a rape complainant’s private medical records without their knowledge and consent is a gross invasion of privacy. Such action was an outrageous abuse of police power.

Ms X immediately went to court to challenge the search warrant. On the morning of 5th November 2019, the issuing magistrate, having been properly apprised of the facts, immediately suspended the search warrant. The Magistrate further granted an Anonymity Order, which prevents any person (including the press) from identifying Ms X, whether directly or indirectly. A breach of the Anonymity Order may amount to a contempt of Court.

Over the past few days, Ms X has been deeply distressed to see alleged details of her case leak onto the internet. The Police Public Relations Bureau and unidentified ‘police sources’ have selectively released supposed details of the investigation, along with adverse comment on the evidence, in a way which any objective observer would be driven to conclude, were directed at publicly discrediting Ms X and diminishing any prospect of a successful prosecution.

Ms X considers that any attempt by police to publicly discredit a rape victim and adversely comment on evidence in an on-going investigation is despicable and offensive. Such attempts should be condemned in the strongest terms.

Unsurprisingly, Ms X has formed the view that the Hong Kong police force cannot be trusted to impartially investigate her allegations or indeed any criminal complaints relating to police officers.

Ms X demands that the police immediately cease the unlawful and grossly unprofessional leaking of information and comment about her case. She asks for her privacy to be respected.

I don’t have access to the latest article, but what’s the India story you mention?

Cait had been planning a trip to India with some friends and at the time her Outlander audition caught Ron and Maril’s attention and they asked her to come and do the chemistry test with Sam her passport was in Indian processing limbo. That’s why they flew Sam to LA. The original is a cute story. This version about planning to take that trip to India with her international music producing boyfriend, now husband, not so much. The more they talk the more they mess up their already messy timeline.

The days are long and the nights are cold… Jamie grasps for any chance at physical contact with the enthralling Mistress Beauchamp.

Hi anon,

Mod Bonnie’s story, Hail Mary, features Jamie providing emergency physical contact with Claire…and explores how their story may have unfolded after that…
