Re-radicalisation programme

Dear Correctional Services Department,

I am writing to make official requests for the following information.

In relation to a Legislative Council Financial Committee document in which the Security Bureau disclosed information in relation to the Department's use of "de-radicalisation" programmes for demonstrators who were involved in the 2019 protests Legislative Council:

(1) It is mentioned in the document that the Department will allocate "case manager" to assess the rehabilitation needs of the inmates who have "radical thoughts and behaviours" (i.e.「激進思想特徵」). Please provide information about the assessment criteria or indicator of such "radical thoughts and behaviours" and "rehabilitation needs".

(2) It is mentioned in the document that 250 people in custody have voluntarily taken part up (as of 28 February 2022). Please provide the latest figure for the number of participants.

(3) It is mentioned in the document that there were 89 people under statutory supervision because of their involvement in the 2019 protests (as of 31 December 2021). Please (i) provide the latest figure; and (ii) advise whether the "de-radicalisation" programme also applies to these people who are under statutory supervision, and if not, whether similar programmes have been adopted.

Yours faithfully,

Ms Wai
