Asset freeze explained

(To watch the full media session with sign language interpretation, click here.)   Secretary for Security John Lee today said notices issued last week for freezing of property in writing to freeze all the shares of Next Digital held by Jimmy Lai and the property in the local bank accounts of three companies owned by him are a national security matter and have nothing to do with press freedom.   Responding to reporters' questions, Mr Lee said: “Any activities that endanger national security will not be tolerated. Such activities, people or organisations will receive the full force of the law.”   Pursuant to Schedule 3 to the Implementation Rules for Article 43 of the National Security Law, where the Secretary for Security has reasonable grounds to suspect that any property held by any person is offence related property, the secretary may, by notice specifying the property, direct that a person must not deal with the property except under the authority of a licence granted by the secretary.   Mr Lee noted that issuing the notices aimed to prevent acts that endangered national security in accordance with the law and had no direct relation to the work of journalists.   “Endangering national security is a very serious crime. The Government’s position is very clear - we will make use of all legal measures to prevent, interdict and suppress such activities endangering national security. It is illegal activities that we are dealing with, not press work.”

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
