Core member of the pro-democracy League of Social Democrats, Gavin Kwai Sze-kit, who was attacked near his Causeway Bay home over the weekend, said he had been 'ready for the unexpected'. Kwai spoke for the first time yesterday after the attack early on Saturday. He suffered abrasions to his forehead, the corner of his left eye, and right cheek. Kwai, the party's secretary general and said to be deeply involved in the planning of its strategy for May's Legislative Council by-elections, suspected the attack was politically motivated but said he would not be scared off. The 35-year-old activist described his injuries as 'no big deal'. But, for the sake of his mother, he said he would soon move house. After giving a statement to the Wan Chai police station yesterday, Kwai said: 'I do not know why I was attacked. I cannot think of anything related to my private affairs that might lead to the assault. 'I will not fear and I will continue my political activities. I will not hide. I am always ready for the unexpected. The police did not mention offering me protection and I have not asked for it either,' he added. Two attackers ambushed him in Hysan Avenue as he was on his way home at about 3am on Saturday after he had been drinking with colleagues. 'The two men did not say anything. They just kept beating me. I fell down and got kicked in the head. The men then quickly ran away,' Kwai said, adding that he did not recognise his attackers. He was taken to hospital and discharged yesterday. His colleague, Albert Chan Wai-yip, who is one of the five legislators who resigned in January to trigger a series of by-elections that they regard as a de facto referendum on universal suffrage, said the attack on Kwai would not affect the party's plans for the by-elections, scheduled for May 16. Beijing has criticised the de facto referendum campaign as being 'unconstitutional'. Kwai was formerly a government administrative officer. He made headlines after he helped stop an arson attack on the MTR in 2004. In December last year he was admitted to hospital after being injured by his girlfriend during a dispute at his home.
