Hong Kong fencing representative Zhang Jialong won the gold medal in the men's individual foil fencing competition at the Olympic Games on Monday (26th). On that day, hundreds of citizens gathered at the Kwun Tong apm shopping mall to watch the live broadcast.
And there are online clips circulating that when Zhang Jialang received the award and played the national anthem, the mall booed when there were citizens in the mall.
According to sources, the police received a complaint earlier, and the Police East Kowloon Region Criminal Division launched an investigation, including the seizure of CCTV records from shopping malls for follow-up.
In addition, tomorrow morning (30th) Hong Kong flying fish, He Shibei, will compete in the Olympic 100-meter freestyle final. It is understood that the police will also pay close attention to the situation, including whether there are any illegal acts such as booing the national anthem.
From the videos circulating on the Internet, it can be seen that at the apm site that night, many citizens booed while playing the national anthem, and some chanted "We are Hong Kong".
Senior Counsel Tang Jiahua said earlier that the act of "shushing the national anthem" may violate the "National Anthem Act" and advises the public not to express dissatisfaction while playing the national anthem.

In addition, someone posted a clip of Zhang Jialang receiving the award earlier on the Internet, but the Chinese song was changed to "May Glory Return to Hong Kong". It is understood that the Police Cyber Security and Technology Crime Investigation Bureau is following up on the incident.
