Rogers reported the incidents to British police and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and said foreign office minister Mark Field had expressed concern about the incident.
The first letter, sent in March, was addressed to a “Dear Resident” living on the same street as Rogers. It included Rogers’ photograph and warned: “Watch him.” With a similar “keep a watch on him” message to his neighbourhood, the latest letter received on Thursday briefly listed comments by HKW or Rogers on controversial legislation recently enacted in the city and the jailing of local activists. It also included several pictures of HKW’s reception earlier this month, and attacked the British politicians who attended, including former governor Chris Patten.
Rogers’ mother, who lives a 2½-hour drive from London, also received an anonymous letter in June. It said Rogers’ actions bore a “crusade-like attitude” towards the sender’s home country China and Hong Kong, and told him to be “mindful of his choice of words” which might affect the city’s youth.
“Please ask your dearest son to take down his website, hongkongwatch,” the letter said.//
