HKGCC Statement on Secretary for Security’s FOO Announcement

For Immediate Release

The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) welcomes the Government’s efforts to address concerns over revisions to the Fugitive Offenders Ordinance (FOO).

 “We are pleased that the Government has taken on-board our suggestions to enhance the safeguards on its proposed legislative amendments,” said HKGCC Chairman Aron Harilela. “Having a comprehensive safeguard mechanism in place is vital.”

 HKGCC’s Legislative Council Representative Jeffrey Lam said: “We appreciate that the Government recognizes there is widespread public concern regarding the amendments, and that it has worked hard to address these.”

 As there have been persistent trepidations expressed among the public and professional communities in Hong Kong, HKGCC hopes to see more communication with all stakeholders moving forward.
