Can't blame her, you know... Hong Kong aircon.
So after disappearing for 10 days (and counting), the CCP-appointed leader issued - or merely delivered - some edicts while meeting with the expected special interest groups behind closed doors: United Front types, the top brass of the rule-by-law enforcement and finally pro-authoritarian business men.Chief Executive Carrie Lam has reportedly reiterated that she would not set up an independent probe into police action on June 12 and said that she will not be resigning.
Sources present at the meeting on Thursday with the Friends of Hong Kong Association said she described herself as "fine" and happy to carry on serving the SAR.
Former Chief Secretary Henry Tang, ex-Legco president Rita Fan, Victor Li of CK Hutchison Holdings were among those at the meeting.
The sources said Lam – who's not made a public appearance for ten days – said rejected calls to form the commission to probe the police because she thinks the existing mechanism is effective, and that under the current circumstances, the police must be supported.
The Hong Kong leader, sources said, also stated she that won't promise not to prosecute protesters involved in the major clashes on June 12, because that would be an intervention into judicial affairs.
Meanwhile, rural leader Kenneth Lau said on Friday his Heung Yee Kuk will continue support having Lam as Hong Kong's leader. He said she has already listened to people's views and suspended the work on the extradition bill, which he said effectively is a withdrawal.
Maybe the government is worried there won't be enough protesters on July 1st.
