Mediation event held

The "Mediate First" Pledge Event 2021 was held online today by the Department of Justice to promote the use of mediation in Hong Kong's various sectors for dispute resolution, complementing the department's long-term policy efforts to promote and develop the wider use of mediation.   The event attracted more than 1,300 participants from different sectors of 14 jurisdictions around the globe.   Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng said the department has spared no effort in promoting mediation both locally and internationally.   The relevant work includes the Mediation Mechanism established under the Investment Agreement of the Mainland & Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement for the settlement of investment disputes; the Investment Law & Investor-State Mediator Training Course in Hong Kong co-organised with the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes and the Asian Academy of International Law; working closely with the Department of Justice of Guangdong Province and the Secretariat for Administration and Justice of the Macao Special Administrative Region in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area Legal Departments Joint Conference on the establishment of a GBA Mediation Platform; and the Small Claims Mediation Pilot Scheme at the West Kowloon Mediation Centre which provides mediation services to litigants of the Small Claims Tribunal cases.   Titled "Mediate First - Anchoring the Future", the "Mediate First" Pledge Event 2021 started with a webinar comprising three panel discussions.   Speakers with different areas of expertise shared their professional insights and experiences on the use of mediation in resolving disputes relating to private wealth matters, in health care disputes, and in resolving employees' compensation claims.   The webinar will be followed by the official launch of the "Mediate First" logo, and the Star Logo Award Presentation Ceremony and Signing Ceremony of the "Mediate First" Pledge. This year, a total of 34 pledgees are awarded the Star Logo for their achievements in promoting and adopting mediation in the course of their business operations.   Organisations and individuals signing the "Mediate First" Pledge agree to first explore the use of mediation to resolve disputes arising in the course of their business dealings and operations, before pursuing other dispute resolution processes or court litigation.   In the past year, 46 pledgees have signed up to support the use of mediation to resolve disputes, bringing the total of organisations and individuals signing the pledge to more than 700 since its launch in 2009.   Click here for details.

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
