BREAKING: National Party convenor Andy Chan and spokesman Jason Chow assaulted by hooligans in Taiwan
HKNP’s Convenor Andy Chan Ho-Tin and Spokesman Jason Chow Ho-Fai were assaulted tonight at Taipei just as they were leaving a restaurant. The two have just finished an interview in the restaurant when a group chanting “Taiwanese and Hong Kongese secessionists!” and “Han traitors to the state!” rushed in and attacked them. The HKNP gravely condemns the attackers and all those behind this gratuitous act. Chan and Chow are largely unharmed, and are now having their statements recorded at a police station in Zhongzheng District, Taipei. Further updates will be issued as they come in.
