Police render full assistance to bailiffs in executing Injunction Order

     Police have met with the plaintiff of the Injunction Order on the blockage of the access into CITIC Tower, Admiralty and the bailiffs today (November 17) with regard to the execution of the order. Police are ready to give the fullest support to the bailiffs to execute the court order tomorrow (November 18).
     The Court of First Instance earlier in its judgment authorised bailiffs to assist the plaintiff in removing obstructions and that the bailiffs could request the assistance of Police when necessary. The court further authorised Police to arrest those who obstruct the bailiffs in executing their duties.

     Police emphasise that the bailiffs are authorised by the court to execute court orders.  Any act amounts to obstruction may render one liable to the offence of "criminal contempt of court". If anyone obstructs or violently charges the bailiffs when they are executing their duties, Police will take resolute action.

     Police urge the illegal road occupiers to obey the court order, remove obstacles and personal belongings, and stop the illegal occupation soonest.
