Thousands gather at Chater Garden in Hong Kong for MeToo protest against police

Police in Hong Kong maintain they have respected the rights of people in detention and said that online"rumours" claiming a person had been sexually harassed are false."We have looked into the records and I must emphasise that such rumors are totally false. Also, we have not received any formal reports or complaints," Tse Chun-chung, chief superintendent of the police public relations branch said in a statement on Tuesday.

On Monday, Chief Executive Carrie Lam said that she would not give up on building a platform for dialogue, although the time was not right to set up an independent inquiry into the crisis, one of the cornerstone demands of protesters.
