The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for Fu Keung House in Tai Wo Hau Estate 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 1,150 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 335 people’s test records were checked. Twenty-four people were found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 720 households in the area, of which 40 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 Fu Keung House within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. http://dlvr.it/

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.
