CY takes part in tribute to Li Wangyang

16-06-2012

The Chief Executive-elect, C.Y. Leung, has observed a minute's silence in honour of mainland pro-democracy activist Li Wangyang who was found dead in suspicious circumstances in Hunan province earlier this month.

Mr Leung was asked to take part in the tribute by the organiser of a public forum in Kwai Fong which he was attending.

Mr Leung has said it would be inappropriate for him to comment on Mr Li's death.

Thousands of people took part in a protest last Sunday to demand an investigation into the dissident's death, which Shaoyang authorities claim was an accident.
