PORI 3rd Anniversary
HKPORI was symbolically established on May 4, 2019 and then officially started to operate on July 1. We have chosen to launch ourselves on the centenary of the May Fourth Movement, in order to wave high the flags of science and democracy, and to find a new direction for the development of the world, our country, our nation and our society. Incidental to PORI’s ongoing half-yearly review, we would like to make this announcement: After May Fourth this year, PORI will reduce the frequency of our press conferences to about four times a month, in order to spare more resources for our online civic education work. Besides, PORI would also like to stress the separation of comments from figures, so that the responsibility of all personal comments arising from our scientific research lies entirely on the commentators concerned, not HKPORI.
Regarding Responses to Media Enquiries
Starting from today, HKPORI will centrally respond to all media enquiries via email, in order to record the time and content of such enquiries, and to clarify our answers when necessary. We have recently reviewed our work over the past six months, and found that some media have started to use unprofessional practices to handle enquiries, or even fabricate false documents to discredit PORI. Every time, PORI would consider whether to report to the police or take legal action in light of the seriousness of the case. All said, PORI still wants to handle these incidents as part of its civic education effort, in order to help Hong Kong society get back on track. Please note that PORI may not be able to respond to media enquiries promptly outside its office hours. PORI’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will handle them during office hours by triage.
