Police to help bailiffs

November 13, 2014

As instructed by the court, Police will provide assistance to bailiffs when enforcing the injunctions banning the occupation of sites in Mong Kok and Admiralty.


Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen made the statement to reporters today, saying a civil injunction would not normally involve the Police.


However, as some people have said they will not obey the injunctions, the court has explicitly instructed that the plaintiff can seek bailiff assistance in enforcing the orders, while bailiffs can seek Police help if necessary.


Mr Yuen said the Government is not trying to intervene, adding Police must take action if people commit criminal contempt by disobeying court orders.
