A 15-year-old Hong Kong student whose body was found in the sea in September walked barefoot through campus for about 20 minutes before leaving alone on the day she was last seen, according to new security footage released by the school’s management.
The Vocational Training Council (VTC) on Wednesday released another 16 video clips – filmed on September 19 – of the girl, following a violent protest by students demanding disclosure.
Against the backdrop of the anti-government protests rocking the city and accusations of police brutality, critics have said the girl, who had taken part in demonstrations, died at the hands of the force.
Police have dismissed such claims, saying there was nothing suspicious about the teen’s death.
The college on Wednesday also pledged to launch a disciplinary hearing for staff who referred to protesters opposing the school’s handling of the girl’s case as “cockroaches” in an internal memo.
