The University wishes to solemnly point out that the recent statement by the Student Union of the University of Hong Kong on changes to the political system does not represent the position of the University, nor does it represent the views of the whole student population. The University strongly disagrees with HKUSU making the political declaration in an emotional manner.
The HKUSU is an independent registered organisation. The University is currently reviewing the various arrangements it has all along provided for HKUSU to clearly define the rights and responsibilities of all parties involved.
The University reiterates that everyone should abide by the law and should take responsibility for one’s acts.
