Transcript of remarks by Acting S for S

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Acting Secretary for Security, Mr John Lee, at a media session after attending the Legislative Council meeting of the Panel on Security today (January 5):

Reporter: Did immigration officers or police officers fail to do their job because a Hong Kong resident was able to leave the territory without going through the proper immigration channel? Did any officials fail to do the proper boundary check in a proper manner?

Acting Secretary for Security: I would not comment on the details of some information that has appeared in the media regarding the whereabouts and the means of getting to the whereabouts as revealed by the media. What is important in this case is we should give the Police time to ascertain what really happened, what the real facts of the case are, based on the evidence to examine how things had happened and what had happened.

(Please also refer to the Chinese portion of the transcript.)
