Hong Kong: Harassment and arrest of monitors hamper monitoring of human rights violations at protests

, Index number: ASA 17/1495/2019

Amnesty International is concerned to learn of the arrest of human rights monitors Robert Godden and Jennifer Wang on the morning of 18 November as they attempted to exit a police cordon set up around protests centered at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, as well as the potential ill-treatment by police of another detainee the two witnessed. Amnesty International calls on the Hong Kong authorities to respect, protect and facilitate the right of human rights observers to monitor all aspects of assemblies, and to establish a fully independent, impartial, effective and prompt investigation into the use of force by law enforcement during the Extradition Bill protests.
