The emotional family of a mainland Chinese tourist allegedly beaten to death in a dispute over “forced shopping” at a Hong Kong jewellery store today demanded a proper explanation for his death after identifying his body. Miao Chunqi, 54, died on Tuesday at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, a day after he was allegedly dragged out of the Hung Hom store by a group of men and repeatedly kicked when he tried to play peacemaker in a fight between a colleague and a tour guide. “I will defend my own rights. We are owed a proper explanation,” said Miao’s wife, when asked what action she would take after emerging from the Kwai Chung public mortuary this afternoon.
