【《法政匯思》短評:關於Kubrick書店因「警像」攝影展受到恐嚇的事件】
THE PROGRESSIVE LAWYERS GROUP'S SHORT COMMENTARY REGARDING THREATS MADE AGAINST KUBRICK BOOKSHOP DUE TO ITS EXHIBITION OF PHOTOGRAPHS OF POLICE OFFICERS

我們得悉位於油麻地百老匯電影中心旁的Kubrick書店由本月一日起,展出攝影師陳偉江的「警像」系列攝影作品,於咖啡室牆上貼了多張警員的大頭照片。

根據近日報導,Kubrick書店指近日收到大量匿名電話,就「警像」攝影展覽作出辱駡及威嚇性的言論,包括「俾人放火唔好報警」、會到書店「作進一步行動」等。書店在經攝影師同意下,已將「警像」作品撤下。

雖然Kubrick書店並未有詳細提及該「威嚇性」的内容,但我們希望各界關注《基本法》保障香港市民的言論自由及表達自由。如果來電的内容令接聽電話的職員受驚,該「威嚇性」的内容亦可能已經觸犯了《刑事罪行條例》第24條。

在此,我們鼓勵Kubrick書店的負責人積極考慮報警處理,因爲我們都相信警方應該按照法例作出調查。如發現有任何的違法行爲,警方亦應該把恐嚇書店的兇徒繩之於法。

We understand that the Kubrick Bookshop located next to Broadway Cinemas in Yau Ma Tei has, since 1 March, exhibited photographer Chan Wai Kong's close up photographs of the faces of a number of police officers.  These photographs were exhibited on the walls of the bookshop's coffee shop.

According to recent press reports, Kubrick bookshop has recently received many anonymous telephone calls which contained insulting and threatening remarks in relation to this photography exhibition, including "don't call the police if you are set on fire", "we will take further action" against the bookshop, etc.  With the consent of the photographer, the bookshop has already taken down the photographs that were exhibited.

Although Kubrick bookshop has not provided details of the threats that were made, we would ask that everyone takes note of the Basic Law's guarantees of free speech and free expression for Hong Kong residents.  If the contents of the telephone calls have instilled fear in staff who received them, then such threatening words may already have constituted an offence under section 24 of the Crimes Ordinance.

As such, we would encourage those responsible for the running of Kubrick bookshop to actively consider reporting the matter to the police, because we trust the police would investigate the matter in accordance with law.  If it is found that illegal acts have taken place, the police should also bring to justice the criminals responsible for making such threats.
