and his associates spent a large portion of the money raised on luxury items BBC news welcome to hard to walk on the BBC world service with me Stephen sacker my guest today Anthony Chung is a member of Hong Kong's post nineteen ninety seven political establishment off to Chinese sovereignty over the territory was restored under the one country two systems formula Mr Cheung filled a number of top posts in the Hong Kong administration culminating in a five year stint as secretary of transport and housing now he's a professor at the education university of Hong Kong but his remains a significant voice in the politics of the territory particularly at this time all the cute crisis one key the mind of the protest as it's been met a widely hated extradition bill has being withdrawn but neither Hong Kong chief executive Carrie lam nor the Beijing authorities appear to be in any mood to balance of the protesters why did Dimond's somewhat now how bleak all the prospects for Hong Kong well Anthony Jones joins me now on the line from Hong Kong welcome to hold took your outcome from the outside it looks as though Hong Kong is sliding ever deeper into chaos is that the way it feels to you inside Hong Kong well it's really distressing to see what's happening protests and violence seem to be continuing and the whole committee is getting very anxious some young people feel that they don't see a breakthrough they didn't see the light at the end of the tunnel any defeat for the hosts today we have yet to find a politicization to the crisis and we can see that the central government is Beijing is also getting very anxious and is very ink that Hong Kong might get out of control and therefore it has been emphasizing the need for a national security for stability but unless a political solution is font item thing that kind of prospect will come about very soon do you admire the tenacity and one could say the courage all of the mostly young people who still take to the streets despite knowing that they may well face water cannon and tear gas back to on charges and rubber bullets my feelings are right the mixed on the one hand I can see that many young people taking part in the current protests their objectives they they want to see Hong Kong becoming better but at the moment the Methodist they are using in my view I'm not really achieving too much because as you can see anger of violence can also breed more anger and violence and we see the hose aside to becoming more polarized and it appears to me that among many protesters they don't really have an end game they they know what they're not happy about but I don't think they have a kia approach as to how to bring about a better outcome what languages com if I may say so research on what what really interests me is that while it is true it's mostly young people on the streets confronting the police what is also evident is that there is a vast swathe of Hong Kong opinion including what we could say middle class people parents professionals from doctors to teachers all sorts of people who are with the students in terms of sympathy for that demands for change in Hong Kong and and recently we spoke to somebody I'm sure you know and sunshine who was chief secretary in the transition period and for the first few years all of post ninety seven governments in Hong Kong and she says the disaffection with the current administration in Hong Kong spans a very broad section spectrum all of the community prompting unprecedented protests from professionals in legal education medical social services from the elderly to the mothers of young children so this is not just about radical young people I think it's valid observation that the majority of the community is not happy about how government is performing particularly in the way the current crisis is being handled but having said that still I mean among those who are not happy with the government that they have to really find a way out and that outcome can only be worked together with the government and public with us and you to create more room for trust between the protesters and government but maybe maybe this the Hong Kong government isn't up to the job I'm mindful that a couple of months ago you went to a so called brainstorm session with senior officials including chief executive Carrie lam did you tell Carrie lam but frankly it's time for her to go she's part of the problem not the solution at that time I did not really comment on whether she should leave the scene or not but at that time I emphasized the need for an independent inquiry because that must be a very important step to us we conservation and indeed the vast majority of public opinion Hong Kong is in favor of an independent party but of course the independent car is not the solution itself let me help you Mister John because some people want understand what you mean by an independent enquiring of course the protest is one to a full independent inquire into what they call the brutality of the policing of the demonstrations going back now for several months seems to me your saying something slightly different you you want to inquire re which looks at violence not just in terms of the policing but also in terms of the demonstrators in some ways your drawing unequivocal ins between the two which the demonstrators regardless completely unacceptable well I think for those who are in favor of an independent Hari they want to have an profit read that his impartial fair and the card we should look at the whole saga of course police actions and avoid debris would be part of what is to be investigated but all those factors circumstances that have led to to the escalation of the crisis in my view should be looked at because this is the most serious crisis of governance in Hong Kong ever since nineteen ninety seven and while it since nineteen sixty seven right well but not brainstorm session where you talked about the independent enquiring the need for one I was back in August when our here in November and this still isn't an independent enquiring you Carrie lam and faxes be hardened her position she says it's quite simple a situation we face now is anti government violence the most effective solution is to tackle the violence head on appeasing the violent riots rioters is not a solution so she is toughening her stand so I ask you again is it time for her to go if any government faces the kind of crisis challenge that is now happening in Hong Kong there is a need to consider how to be shuffled the government in order to open a new page in terms of post crisis media work of course the timing is so if it's a tricky one because if it's not just for Kerry let.
