Red paint has been dashed on the offices of district councillors Alice Lam Chui-lin and Chung Shu-kun.
Lam’s office in Siu Sai Wan Estate, Chai Wan, was vandalised with red paint on Sunday night. A note from an unknown creditor asking for their money back was stuck on the wall.
Speaking to HKFP, Lam said the creditor was not looking for her specifically, but a friend of hers.
“He used to be a Liberal Party member, then he helped us organise a tea party. Now he is a member of the DAB,” Lam said of the friend.
The DAB, the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, is the biggest pro-Beijing party in Hong Kong.
Lam said her friend claimed to be innocent. “He said he doesn’t owe anyone money.”
On Monday morning, Chung’s office, which is a few blocks away from Lam’s, was also attacked with red paint. A spokesperson from Chung’s office said she doesn’t know what was behind it.
Both Chung and Lam are members of the Eastern District Council. Both are running for re-election this year.
Chung is a DAB member and also a legislative councillor, while Lam’s official website states she has no political affiliations.
