香港律師會就2019年9月1日示威人士於香港國際機場公然違抗正在生效的法庭禁制令發表聲明

香港律師會聲明

於2019 年9 月1 日癱瘓香港國際機場通道、堵塞馬路及破壞公共交通和鐵路車站的行為,是公然違抗正在生效的法庭禁制令,該禁制令禁止任何人非法地及有意圖地故意阻礙或干擾香港國際機場及鐵路的正常使用。

香港律師會非常關注並認為,公然違抗法庭禁制令是對法治的侮辱。任何人士忽視遵守或遵照法庭禁制令,或任何人士援助或煽動、協助或教唆他人違反法庭禁制令,可能會被控以藐視法庭–這是一件嚴重的事。

律師會譴責各種形式的非法暴力;特別是對警察使用汽油彈、對警察家屬擬作出攻擊及欺凌其在校園的子女。

律師會亦留意到公眾嚴正關注警方對港鐵站內的乘客施加不必要武力一事。律師會促請相關執法部門認真正視有關事件,並徹底和公正地進行調查。

律師會呼籲香港特區政府採取措施,以解決整個社會的關注。社會各界不同人士已向政府提出了一些建設性的建議。律師會促請政府與市民進行公開對話,盡快 尋求恢復香港和平與安寧的解決方案。

Statement by The Law Society of Hong Kong

Paralysing access to the Hong Kong International Airport, blocking roads and vandalising public transport and railway stations on 1st September 2019 were acts in open defiance of court injunctions that are currently in force, restraining persons from unlawfully and wilfully obstructing or interfering with the proper use of the Airport and the railway.

The Law Society of Hong Kong views with alarm the open defiance of the court orders, which is an affront to the rule of law. Any person who neglects to obey or comply with the court orders, or any person who assists or incites, aids or abets another in disobeying the court orders, may be held in contempt of court – a serious matter.

The Law Society condemns all forms of unlawful violence; particularly, the use of petrol bombs against the police, as well as apparent attacks on the families of police officers and bullying of their children at school.

The Law Society also notes grave concerns about the police exerting unnecessary force against passengers inside MTR stations. The Law Society urges the relevant law enforcement authorities to take such concerns seriously and to investigate them thoroughly and impartially.

The Law Society encourages the Hong Kong SAR government to take steps to address the concerns of society as a whole. Different sectors of the community have submitted some constructive suggestions to the government. The Law Society encourages the government to engage in an open dialogue with the community and without delay, in order to find solutions to help restore peace and quiet in Hong Kong.
