Don’t let the Truth be Buried
Alex Chow Tsz-lok, a 22-year-old student of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, fell to death in Sheung Tak Carpark in Tseung Kwan O on November 4, 2019, becoming the first person who died at the scene of confrontation between police and demonstrators during the anti-extradition law protests in 2019. The cause of his death kept raising speculation in the society. One year after the incident, the Coroner’s Court opened a 29-day inquest, in which the jury reached a four to one majority to conclude with an open verdict. Were the inquest and the verdict able to solve mysteries to give people relief and unveil the truth?
