The president of the Students’ Union of the Education University has warned of “serious consequences” if the institution tracks down and punishes the person who put up a controversial poster on its Tai Po campus on Thursday.
Speaking on a radio programme, Lala Lai said she didn’t know who put up the poster, with a message "congratulating" Undersecretary for Education Christine Choi on the death of her son, on the “democracy wall” managed by the union.
The university’s president, Stephen Cheung, has condemned the action and vowed to check CCTV footage to find out who did it.
But Lai said that would create "white terror".
She agreed that the poster was controversial, but she said she would not comment on whether the action was right or wrong.
Choi’s 25-year-old son jumped to his death from a luxury flat on top of Kowloon MTR Station on Thursday.
