38 teachers commended

Acting Chief Executive Paul Chan presented the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence to 15 teachers at the Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre today.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung presented the Certificate of Merit to 23 teachers.   Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Chan expressed his heartfelt congratulations to the awarded teachers and thanked them for their dedicated efforts in education.   He encouraged teachers to actively participate in exchange activities with the Mainland and explained that through observation and exchanges, they could explore ways to improve teaching professionalism with outstanding senior teachers on the Mainland.   They can also use these opportunities to strengthen their understanding of the country’s politics, economy, society, history and culture, and then share their knowledge gained with colleagues and students, Mr Chan added.   There was a total of 121 and 104 nominations for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 awards.  

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.
