 The high court of Hong Kong has issued a ban on the publication of information on incitement to violence on the Internet


According to Hong Kong media reports, the plaintiff of this injunction is the Secretary for justice. The contents include prohibiting anyone from publishing, disseminating or repeatedly publishing information or materials that incite others to use violence on online platforms, including but not limited to Liandeng, and telegram, so as to cause other peoples injury or property damage. The petition also requires the person concerned to withdraw the information that has been made public. It is understood that the time limit of the prohibition order is until the 15th of next month.

During the riots in Hong Kong, which lasted for many months, there were a large number of online platforms and social software such as Liandeng and telegraph to incite violent speech, propaganda pictures and videos to spread every day. Through these platforms, the rioters organized and planned the riots and used fake information to incite the public without taking any legal responsibility. These platforms were once regarded as rioters base camp by people from all walks of life.

According to public information, in Hong Kong, an injunction is an equitable remedy made by a court order, requiring the parties to stop to start or stop doing something. Any party involved who fails to comply with the injunction will be punished by civil or criminal prosecution and must pay compensation or be punished by the court. Some violators of the restraining order will be regarded as serious criminal offences, and the offenders will be arrested and jailed accordingly.
