A 16-year-old girl from Hong Kong claimed she was gang raped by police officers. Recent reports state that she got an abortion on Friday (Nov 8) as a result of the rape.
The girl said she was walking past Tsuen Wan Police Station on Sept 27 when she was seized by police officers wearing riot gear. She was dragged inside a room in the station and was allegedly raped by the four officers.
The Hong Kong Free Press reported that the girl was not wearing black nor was she protesting when she was abducted.
The lawyer who represents the victim reportedly filed a rape case to the Complaints Against Police Office (Capo) on Sept 22.
The victim has since had an abortion at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Yau Ma Tei.
The South China Morning Post confirmed through an anonymous informant that the abortion had indeed taken place.
Police officers deny the accusation and argue that the victim’s claims “do not match” with their initial findings.
“CCTV footage does not show her presence around the police station nor entering the building. We also do not have her arrest record… Her descriptions of the police station and the setting of the room also fail to match reality,” one police source said.
The police added that the case is reportedly being investigated by the New Territories South Regional Crime Unit./TISG
