    This has gone way beyond comically stupid. With the police going totally blunderbuss like this, it threatens the very existence of Hong Kong as a financial centre. Let’s see how they credit this to the protesters.

    Seems others have reached a similar conclusion.

    So is this the so-called "CIA secret fund" that the pro-establishment keep harping about? What's really going on here?

    Freezing the money is on legally dubious grounds I might add:

    Seems like another attempt of government overreach. If this does not get thrown out of court, then I don't see how rule of law still remains in HK.

    It might, but there’s neither compensation nor liability for harassment. Everything (with the law) is built to assume the authorities act in good faith, which the police for the past several months have strongly demonstrated not to be the case.
