The death and injuries among Hong Kong protesters trying to storm the Diaoyu Islands should be blamed on the Japanese Government, a senior Chinese official said after visiting injured protester Fong Yue-yuen. Cheng Yonghua, counsellor at the Chinese Embassy in Tokyo, flew to see Mr Fong in the distant Japanese island of Ishigaki and afterwards declared Mr Fong's actions were 'understandable'. Emergency medical treatment on critically injured Mr Fong has been so successful he may be able to return to Hong Kong on Monday. Mr Cheng criticised the Japanese Government for not controlling right-wing groups and said the islands were 'the territory of China'. He said it was inevitable people in China, Hong Kong and Macau would feel angry. Mr Cheng was just one of a series of diplomatic figures visiting Mr Fong in intensive care. The first was David Lan Hung-tsang, principal representative of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Tokyo. Later the vice-consul of the British Embassy in Tokyo, Iain Willis, and Mr Lan's deputy, Charles Wong Sze-ping, visited. British authorities were informed of Mr Fong's arrival at the hospital by the Maritime Safety Agency of Japan. Mr Fong is, technically, an illegal alien in Japan and has no resources to pay his hospital bills. 'Obviously, Mr Fong in his present state cannot pay the medical costs,' said Mr Wong. 'These will be paid by the Hong Kong Government and the details will be looked at later.' The director of the Yaeyama Hospital, Dr Kiyoshi Chimen, said that on admission Mr Fong's condition was classified as 'moderately severe near-drowning'. He said if Mr Fong had received no treatment he would have a 50 per cent chance of death due to lack of oxygen in the blood. Mr Fong's sister and her boyfriend are expected to arrive at the hospital this morning. Doctor-in-charge Masaki Imamura attributed Mr Fong's quick recovery to his good health and youth. Mr Fong, a driver, is 25. A note written by Mr Fong in neat handwriting said he feared that if he was moved into a general ward he would disturb other patients. Dr Chimen said contact with waiting reporters might cause him to get 'over-excited' and 'emotional'. He said: 'Whether he was acting against Japan we don't care. We just want to make him healthy.'
