SOT, Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive: "The truly important principles that I have laid out for the police operation. The first is, of course, to have a peaceful resolution, as far as possible. This objective could only be achieved with the full cooperation of the protesters, including, of course, the rioters that they have to stop violence, give up their weapons and come out peacefully and take the instructions from the police."

SOT, Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive: "So we have arranged for principals and religious groups' representatives to go into the campus to encourage and persuade these minors to come out peacefully. And if they come out peacefully, we will just put down their data. So we make a record of their personal data and they may then leave the campus and return to home. We have not done any immediate arrest of these under-aged protesters or other participants within the campus. But, of course, we will have to reserve the right to undertake further investigations in future."

SOT, Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive: "The latest assessment given to me [is] that perhaps there would be about 100 or so people still on campus. So I made a very strong plea that for every one of us who are concerned about this situation, we will use whatever means to continue to persuade and arrange for these remaining protesters to leave the campus as soon as possible, so that this whole operation could be able to end in a peaceful manner and lay the basis for the subsequent work by the police to stop violence in Hong Kong."

SOT, Carrie Lam, Hong Kong Chief Executive: "If we were not able to undertake any operations to arrest these rioters who are resorting to escalating violence and who are damaging Hong Kong from one place to another, from one campus to another, and manufacturing more and more life-threatening weapons and petrol bombs and so on, we would not be able to demonstrate and display that competence in dealing with the situation."
