What the public knows on 15 October 2019!
15-year-old girl Chan Yin Lam was a student at Youth College in Tseung Kwan O, which shares a campus with the Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI), as both the schools are managed by the Vocational Training Council. She went missing on September 19 and was last seen on campus.
Her body was found in the sea near Tseung Kwan O on September 22. The girl, who was a member of her school’s swimming team, was said to have attended anti-government protests regularly.
Police have said that an investigation found nothing suspicious about her death. The Police also confirmed the girl was not arrested during recent protests.
“She was good at swimming and had such a bright future. How could she end up like this?” a masked female student who was protesting at HKDI said.
“Release the CCTV footage, reveal the truth,” her fellow students chanted.
The protest started early on Monday morning with dozens of students staging a sit-in on the campus.
Still full CCTV footage has not been made public by HKDI. CCTV footage released appears to have been edited.
Two clips were shown by HKDI, the first filmed by a camera in a car park and the second from inside a lift.
The first clip showed the entrance to a car park, with only a sliver at the top of the screen where people could be seen walking past. When the time reached 18:56, a member of staff paused the video to point out a person dressed in black as the deceased girl. The students erupted in jeers as they found it very difficult to identify who the person was from the low-resolution footage. This clip also had a change in time stamp. When it reached 18:59, the time stamp jumped back to 18:56. At this, the students said that the authorities were showing them an edited version of the video.
The second clip, which carried no time stamp, was of better resolution. In the footage, the girl was only seen entering a lift, after which the school staff declined to show any further footage. This angered the students who wanted to see what happened afterwards.
Students held a protest and some vandalized the school.
THE MOST SUSPICIOUS FACTS ABOUT THIS TRAGIC CASE IS THAT DESPITE MISS CHAN'S NAKED BODY BEING FOUND AT SEA THE POLICE DID NOT ORDER THE CORONER TO PERFORM AN AUTOPSY. HER BODY WAS IMMEDIATELY CREMATED. THIS IS HIGHLY IRREGULAR AND THEREFORE HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS.
THERE NEEDS TO BE AN INDEPENDENT INQUIRY INTO THE HK GOVERNMENT AND POLICE INTO ALL EVENTS LINKED TO PROTESTS IN 2019.
Update: RTHK reports on 28 November 2019 students at this design school broke into the premises and again demanded answers from management.
" Several dozen students at the Hong Kong Design Institute broke into their boarded-up campus on Thursday, demanding fresh talks with management over the death of a 15-year-old classmate over the summer.
Police say Chan Yin-lam, whose naked body was found in the sea near Tseung Kwan O in late September, committed suicide. Chan's mother, who agreed with the police's conclusion, later appealed for people to stop speculating over her daughter's death.
But students at the institute in Tiu Keng Leng aren't satisfied with either the police's explanation, or the meetings they had with management where video clips were played of Chan walking through the campus, not long before she was found dead.
On Thursday, around 60 students threw paper planes into the campus and put up posters regarding Chan's death at the entrance to the site.
Later, they also broke through an unguarded wooden door and entered the institute. But they couldn't find any officials to speak to.
A year 2 student surnamed Pang said they want further answers from management.
"The school didn't discuss or tell anything about the CCTV and why there are many cuts and blurred scenes. So I'm here because I feel sad for her and I want to know what's going on," he said.
In October, angry students vandalised classrooms at the institute, leading to classes being cancelled. The demonstrators said they also want more information about how the lessons missed will be given online instead."
