The Club’s Director of Security & Integrity, Martin Purbrick, will extend a sincere and personal apology to the part-time photographer who staged a silent protest during the race meeting at Sha Tin Racecourse yesterday. Given that some racing fans responded very negatively to the protester, the Club’s security staff reacted in a manner that was not quite appropriate for a non-violent protest which did not impact the operation of the race meeting or personal safety. Mr. Purbrick will meet with the part-time photographer in person to extend his apologies. In addition, the Club’s security staff has been briefed on the sensitivity required in handling protests.
