SJ condemns violent acts

February 8, 2023

Secretary for Justice Paul Lam today expressed immense concern over the suspected criminal damage to the West Kowloon Law Courts Building and strongly condemned any violent acts intended to damage the due administration of justice.


In a statement, Mr Lam noted that where the rule of law is upheld, no act of violent attack or intimidation against the courts or judicial officers will be tolerated.


The Government will seriously pursue any offender who disrupts social order and undermines the rule of law and it will spare no effort in bringing the culprit to justice, Mr Lam said.


“I am confident that the due administration of justice will be maintained and stay unaffected,” he added.
