Pollster Robert Chung says he'll keep giving Hongkongers their say despite police raid and national security law

Veteran public opinion pollster Robert Chung says he’s determined to keep giving Hong Kong people a chance to say what they think, despite a sweeping new national security law, a police raid and smear campaigns from pro-Beijing groups.

The Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute (PORI) hit the headlines last month when police raided its office in Wong Chuk Hang the night before a primary election organised by the pro-democracy camp to choose candidates for legislative elections.

PORI, commissioned to design the electronic voting system, was told the search was linked to concerns about a purported leak of citizens’ personal information, following reports that the organisation’s computer system had been hacked. Officers seized data from some computers in the office but made no arrests.
