↩ Replied to Hong Kong protests: tech war opens up with doxxing of protesters and police .

The leak, however, represents just a small proportion of doxxing cases, which have skyrocketed in the past three months. Hong Kong’s privacy commission said it had received 1,376 complaints and 126 enquiries between 14 June and 18 September regarding personal information being leaked online, according to Stephen Kai-yi Wong, privacy commissioner for personal data.

While journalists have become a high-profile target, about 40% of cases involve police officers while the rest concern government officials, community leaders, the families of police officers, and other citizens, Wong said.

It seems odd that the 60% remaining cases of reported doxxing are other citizens, which could include protesters seemingly doxxed by the police themselves. In this situation, the Privacy Commissioner of Hong Kong has the duty to report the doxxing case back to the police, therefore snitching on the protester about their complaint about doxxing by the police.

Thus the PCPD of Hong Kong is becoming an institutional informant to the police state.
