Beatings report a whitewash

I refer to the report, 'Jail riot report backs beatings' (South China Morning Post, August 28). I feel the Correctional Services Department (CSD) Deputy Commissioner Bonnie Wong Yuk-man has no right to say beating prisoners is justified.


I find it hard to believe all 98 complaints by prisoners were lies. I wish the CSD would stop hiding from the truth.


I am not satisfied with the CSD's report, claiming the beatings were justified. I would like to urge Legco to launch an inquiry into this unacceptable, complete whitewash.
