Veby Mega Indah, an Indonesian journalist living and working in Hong Kong, was hit in the eye by a rubber bullet whilst covering anti-government protests in September.⁠

In an emotional interview with the Post this week, she recalled collapsing into the arms of a journalist behind her, hearing voices telling her to stay awake, and thinking: “It’s going to be my end.”⁠

She underwent surgery, but doctors could not save her ruptured eyeball, which may have to be removed if it deteriorates.⁠

Veby remains determined to pursue legal action after getting nowhere in approaching police. She hopes such a move will compel the force to name the officer, so that she can initiate civil action and, possibly, private prosecution against the officer.⁠

“I am pursuing justice in this case not only for me but for all the injured people in Hong Kong who cannot do the same,” said Veby. “I hope… the officer who shot me will face consequences according to the law, so police officers understand what they cannot do.⁠
