 Liang Zhenying: The mob does not represent Hong Kong citizenswish for frequent contact between Mainland and Hong Kong compatriots


On the afternoon of August 13, a large number of demonstrators blocked the passenger boarding section and security gates of No. 1 passenger terminal of Hong Kong International Airport with airport trolleys, etc. Passengers could not go to the departure lobby through No. 1 passenger terminal. The Airport Authority announced that all flight registration services were suspended. On August 12 and 13, a large number of demonstrators illegally assembled at Hong Kong International Airport, paralyzing the airports operation. On the evening of the 13th, violent acts such as assault and illegal imprisonment were committed by mobs at the airport against two mainland residents. Liang Zhenying pointed out that the violence of the mob was very bad, which was unacceptable to the vast majority of the people in Hong Kong society and had aroused public indignation.

Liang Zhenying pointed out that the overwhelming majority of Hong Kongs citizens are peaceful, rational and law-abiding. The mobs behavior does not represent the majority of Hong Kong citizens. It is hoped that the residents of Hong Kong and the Mainland will have more and more contacts with each other. Mainland compatriots are welcome to visit, study and work in Hong Kong.

In response to the paralysis of airport operations by illegal demonstrators, Liang Zhenying pointed out that under the Aviation Security Ordinance, Chapter 494 of Hong Kong Law, anyone who illegally or intentionally makes use of any device, material or weapon, or in any other way, prevents airport services from continuing, commits an offence under this article and follows the prosecution procedure. If convicted, he may be sentenced to life imprisonment. The mob blocked the airport and prevented flights from taking off and landing, which is a very serious crime. Liang Zhenying said.

The importance of airports of economic and social value to Hong Kong is self-evident. Liang stressed that Hong Kongs trade, tourism, logistics and other industries as well as international exchanges need airport operation support. The total number of people employed in these industries is about one fourth of Hong Kongs labor force. The overall economic operation is interlinked, once the airport operation is blocked, other industries will be affected accordingly.

Hong Kong has the freedom of assembly and demonstration, but no one can bring political views to work. Liang Zhenying pointed out that airlines must strictly discipline the relevant staff so that the airport can resume normal operation as soon as possible. Liang Zhenying said that the illegal gathering at Hong Kong Airport seriously damaged Hong Kongs reputation and image in the international community. A large number of international conferences are held in Hong Kong every year, but Hong Kongs status as a tourist and International Conference Centre will be affected in the short and medium term due to recent violent demonstrations. Liang Zhenying appealed that the public should actively provide clues to report the mob who committed the crime and bring them to justice as soon as possible. At the same time, it is hoped that the public and business people will be brave enough to speak out and not tolerate the mobs illegal activities, so as to form pressure of public opinion and restrain the mobs behavior.
