1. We disagree @Apple and @hkpoliceforce 's claim that HKmap App endanger law enforcement and residents in Hong Kong.

#HKmap #HKmaplive #HK #Censorship
2. There is 0 evidence to support CSTCB's accusation that HKmap App has been used to target and ambush police, threaten public safety, and criminals have used it to victimize residents in areas where they know there is no law enforcement.
3. HKmap App never solicit, promote, or encourage criminal activity.
4. HKmap App consolidate information from user and public sources, e.g. live news stream, Facebook and Telegram
5. Most of the contents are user-generated, and we allow users to down vote for moderator review. Moderator will delete contents that "solicit, promote, or encourage criminal activity". Repeated attempt will be banned.
6. The quoted @Apple's App Store Review Guideline is vague, does that include user-generated contents? We are sure there are contents "solicit, promote, or encourage criminal activity" in Facebook, Instagram, Safari, Telegram, Twitter, Waze, Whatsapp, etc. at some point in time.
@Apple 7. The majority of user review in App Store that suggest HKmap IMPROVED public safety, not the opposite.
@Apple 8. We once believed the App rejection is simply a bureaucratic f up, but now it is clearly a political decision to suppress freedom and human right in #HongKong. It is disappointing to see US corps such as @Apple, @NBA, @Blizzard_Ent, @TiffanyAndCo act against #freedom
@Apple - App Store Review Guideline 5: Legal - “Apps must comply with all legal requirements in any location where they are made available." And apps “that solicit, promote, or encourage criminal activity or clearly reckless behavior will be rejected.”
@Apple @NBA @Blizzard_Ent @TiffanyAndCo 9. We even tried to be nice by leaving out the fact that @Apple noted we cannot list our App in China even if we want to (and we don't) to avoid over interpretation.
@Apple @NBA @Blizzard_Ent @TiffanyAndCo 10. HKmap is used by passerby, protesters, journalist, tourist, and even pro-government supporters. It might be hard for people outside to imagine tear gases in your neighborhood, train station, or your go-to shopping mall, but ~5000 of them is fired since June.
@Apple @NBA @Blizzard_Ent @TiffanyAndCo Side note: If HKmap is for target and ambush police or other illegal purpose as falsely accused, why would I bother making it available to the public?
