Police officers searched a student union office at Hong Kong Polytechnic University on Friday, due to an ongoing investigation following clashes between security officers and protesters that broke out in their facilities last year.
Police officers were seen arriving to the university, where students seemed to try to delay them from entering the office, and even requested them to have their warrant shown before accessing the room. Boxes carrying at least one computer and documents could also be spotted being seized after the police finally entered the office.
Hong Kong Polytechnic University made headlines during last year’s protests, as the campus turned into a war zone looking area, after violent clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters broke out in November. According to reports thousands of petrol bombs, pieces of explosives, items classified as weapons were seized from the campus once the 13 days siege of the university ended.
