In an exclusive two-minute video, former Ming Pao editor Kevin Lau called on the Hong Kong police to continue to investigate the violent attack on him and to uncover the mastermind behind the attack.

He also thanked the public for the outpouring of support in the aftermath of the attack.

Lau, former editor of Ming Pao, a Hong Kong Daily, was stabbed by two men February 26 as he was getting out of his car in Sai Wan Ho.

The attack set off a media firestorm and prompted protests over the state of press freedom and the safety of Hong Kong journalists.

The video was released at a panel on press freedom at the fourth annual New.Now.Next media conference co-organized by the Asian American Journalist Association Asia Chapter and the Journalism and Media Studies Centre.
“The police should use every possible means to investigate and find the mastermind behind the scene [of the stabbing],” he sad.

Lau also expressed concerns about HK journalists, “I look forward to progress being made, justice being done and fear among journalists being removed,” he said.

Lau said he may need one or two years to fully regain his ability to walk. He can now walk for 15 minutes with the help of elbow crutches and ankle braces.
