Testing compliance check done

The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for 35-37 Nam Cheong Street in Sham Shui Po finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 50 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 20 people’s test records were checked. No one was found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 20 households in the area, of which five did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in 35-37 Nam Cheong Street within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted areas when the declarations took effect. http://dlvr.it/S

Intimidation against judges intolerable

The Government will take resolute actions and will not tolerate intimidation against judges and Police will leave no stone unturned to apprehend the culprit to safeguard the city's public peace and safety.   The Department of Justice issued the statement today in response to the criminal intimidation against judges threatening their personal safety after they have delivered a judgment.   It pointed out that Basic Law Article 85 guarantees that the courts of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region shall exercise judicial power independently, free from any interference.   Intimidation against judges, who perform judicial duties, and posing threats to their personal safety are unacceptable.   Under section 24 of the Crimes Ordinance, anyone who threatens any other person with injury to him or her shall be guilty and liable to imprisonment of five years.   The department warned that criminal intimidation is a serious offence and urged the public not to break the law.
