Patrick Nip visits AXA

Secretary for the Civil Service Patrick Nip today visited AXA Hong Kong & Macau to view the administering of COVID-19 vaccines.   About 360 staff and agents of the enterprise will receive either a Sinovac or BioNTech vaccine during a two-day outreach vaccination service by the Government.   Mr Nip said the Government welcomes enterprises to join hands with it in promoting the Early Vaccination for All campaign and encourages their employees to support the vaccination programme to protect the health of themselves, colleagues and clients.   He also hoped that people who get vaccinated will encourage their families and friends to do the same as a way to help build an immune barrier in Hong Kong.   He called on the public to get vaccinated as early as possible, noting that the vaccination programme is already offering more quotas for people to make bookings, and same-day tickets for vaccinations will be distributed to seniors aged 70 or above starting tomorrow.   Elderly peop

Glorifying violence unacceptable

Police today strongly condemned blatant violence and those who attempted to romanticise or glorify the despicable act of the attempted murder of a police officer with seditious intent to incite hatred in society.   The force noticed messages circulating online that honoured and paid tribute to the attacker who attempted to murder a police officer and committed suicide last night.   Initial investigations indicated that the case was a lone wolf-style act of domestic terrorism in which the attacker was believed to be radicalised by a myriad of fake information. He committed suicide afterwards.   Police pointed out that the attack was a clear threat to society's safety and a disregard for the rule of law, adding that no violent behaviour will be tolerated and resolute enforcement action will continue to be taken to safeguard public safety and order.   The force is actively gathering intelligence and stepping up patrols across the city, including the crime scene. People are encouraged to report any crime information to Police immediately.   According to section 9 and 10 of the Crimes Ordinance, any person who does or attempts to do, or makes any preparation to do, or conspires with any person to do, any act with a seditious intention, shall be guilty of an offence and is liable to a fine of $5,000 and imprisonment for two years.   Taking part in an unlawful assembly may also breach relevant offences under the Public Order Ordinance and is liable to a maximum penalty of five years' imprisonment.
