More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Get COVID-19 jabs: SJ

The rapidly changing situation of the fifth wave of the epidemic starting from January with the highly transmissible variant spreading to community has aroused grave public concern, including the legal sector. The Judiciary will step up precautionary measures to ensure that courts will be able to continue to operate safely. I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to all legal professionals to lead by example and fulfil their civic responsibilities in receiving a COVID-19 vaccination.   In light of the latest situation, the Judiciary announced that new jury proceedings and death inquests involving juries scheduled will generally be adjourned while all other court hearings will in general continue to proceed as scheduled. Court users, including members of the public observing court proceedings, are advised to share the responsibilities by adhering to the anti-epidemic measures implemented by the Judiciary and getting vaccinated. These measures not only protect oneself, but also protect the health and safety of judicial officers, relevant parties and others in courts.   To combat the epidemic, the Government has been strongly appealing to and encouraging the public to get vaccinated with a view to protecting the community. The Government provides a variety of channels to enable members of the public to receive vaccination conveniently, including extending vaccination services at Hospital COVID-19 Vaccination Stations, setting up additional community vaccination centres, arranging private doctors or clinics as well as service locations operated by private healthcare institutions for vaccination. I urge those who have not yet received vaccination to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves and others.   Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng wrote this article and posted it on her blog on February 27.
