NOW TV has reported on some leaked findings of the Independent Police Complaints Council's study into the #antiELAB protests, saying that the report has been submitted to the Chief Executive and may be published as early as Friday

Summary below:…
As a reminder, the study covered key protest dates in 2019, including June 9, June 12, July 1, July 21, August 11 and August 31. Apart from those dates, the study also covered the police's use of the San Uk Ling Holding Centre to detain protesters.
On July 21, the report concludes that the police underestimated prior intelligence, including messages reminding Yuen Long residents not to go out, and did not pay enough attention when white-shirted people started to gather in order to make an appropriate deployment of officers.
The report goes on to say that the police lacked a good grasp of public opinion following July 21, and did not put out enough clarifications to the allegation of "police-triad collusion," thereby allowing the allegation to spread widely and become a catalyst for future protests.
On August 31, the report apparently does not examine the allegation of police officers injuring ordinary citizens in Prince Edward MTR station, but focuses instead on whether the decision to close the station that night was reasonable.
The government has insisted the IPCC obviates the need for an independent inquiry into the protests, while the opposition argues the IPCC lacks the proper remit and independence.

The latter are unlikely to be satisfied with findings that presuppose the good faith of the police.
