港大:不理解發催淚彈 港府須負責 (原文) (01:38)

港大校長馬斐森發聲明,譴責警方昨日以催淚彈對付佔中集會人士,政府應為此行為負責。

馬斐森在聲明表示,難以理解昨日警方為什麼要向示威者使用催淚彈,認為政府及警方須為此行為負責。

他又表示,諒解教師和學生表達強烈訴求的行動,希望各方和平地表達意見,並保護自身及他人安全,尋求有建設性而非衝突的對話。

另外,他明白在這段期間,教師和學生或因交通受阻而影響上課,希望他們首要注意安全。

聲明原文如下:

To: All students, staff and alumni

We are deeply concerned about our students and staff in these extraordinary times in Hong Kong and therefore the President, Provost, Registrar and Dean of Student Affairs held an emergency meeting with student and staff representatives at the university this evening.

The University of Hong Kong profoundly regrets the escalation of events in recent days. We condemn violence of any kind by any party. We cannot understand the use of tear gas yesterday: the police and the government are accountable for that decision. 

Our institutional policy towards class boycotts and staff absences are as previously stated but we will be flexible and reasonable in understanding the actions of students and staff who wish to express their strongly-held views. We repeat our plea for all parties to express such views peacefully and constructively; to always protect their own safety and that of others; and to engage in constructive dialogue, not in conflict.

We will also be flexible in understanding practical difficulties that staff and students may face in reaching the campus during periods of transport disruption and we advise all staff and students to adopt a "safety first" attitude. 

Professor Peter Mathieson

President and Vice-Chancellor
