Statement from ImmD related to protesters gathering at Immigration Tower
     Regarding protesters gathering at Immigration Headquarters in Wan Chai earlier, despite the fact that most of the protesters have dispersed peacefully, there are still about 10 protesters currently gathered at Immigration Headquarters. The situation is in good order and has not caused any damage or affected members of the public using immigration-related services.

     A spokesperson for the Immigration Department (ImmD) reiterated that the department respects the freedom to express views, but it wishes it to be done in a peaceful and rational manner and not to affect the rights of other members of the public using immigration-related services, especially as many people urgently need to make immigration applications such as applying for travel documents and making extension applications. The ImmD spokesperson appeals to those who are currently at or proceeding to the Immigration Headquarters in Wan Chai for immigration-related services to stay vigilant for their personal safety and be patient while having their application processed. ImmD staff members will process their applications as soon as possible.
