Fifty-eight days after the fatal shootings in the Tsim Sha Tsui underpass, official doors remain closed on even the most basic information about the investigation. Both the police and the coroner's office last week declined to answer a series of simple procedural questions about the probe and the inquest which seems almost certain to result. The judiciary even refused to explain which of the questions we asked police might - under the law - be prejudicial to an inquest. Here are the questions they refused to answer or consider: 1) How many people have been interviewed so far in the police investigation into the shootings? 2) How many police officers have been interviewed in the course of the inquiry and up to what rank? 3) How many civilians (non-police officers) have been interviewed in the course of the investigation so far? 4) Has Tsui Po-ko's wife been interviewed as part of the formal police investigation? 5) Other than the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau, which, if any, other investigative teams are involved? 6) Does it remain your contention that the only person who could possibly be charged in connection with the shootings is Tsui Po-ko? 7) Have you ruled out the possibility that Tsui Po-ko had accomplices in any of his alleged crimes? 8) What is the timetable for the investigation and the release of the results of that investigation?
