英國外相侯俊偉(Jeremy Hunt)周二到國會下議院,就香港警方612清場事件發言,要求港府展開獨立調查,否則拒絕發出防暴裝備的出口許可。

侯俊偉表示,十分關注香港情況,並於6月12日向行政長官提出關注,他促請香港特區政府,對暴力場面進行有效的獨立調查,而調查結果將影響英方對香港警方未來出口許可證申請的評估。

侯俊偉強調:

除非我們滿意對人權和基本自由的關注,否則我們不會再向香港發出人群控制裝備(泛指防暴裝備)的出口許可證。

侯俊偉發言全文:

We remain very concerned with the situation in Hong Kong and I raised those concerns with the Chief Executive on 12 June.  I today urge the Hong Kong SAR Government to establish a robust, independent investigation into the violent scenes that we saw. The outcome of that investigation will inform our assessment of future export license applications to the Hong Kong Police. And we will not issue any further export licenses for crowd control equipment to Hong Kong unless we are satisfied that concerns raised on human rights and fundamental freedoms have been thoroughly addressed.
