Clarification on Director of Immigration's leave of absence
     Regarding an online rumour that the Director of Immigration, Mr Erick Tsang, will go on strike by taking leave today (August 5), the Immigration Department (ImmD) would like to clarify that Mr Tsang was admitted to hospital for medical treatment last week and resumed duty this morning after being discharged from hospital yesterday (August 4). Therefore, it is merely a rumour which is totally unfounded.
     The ImmD would like to reiterate that amid this difficult time, all colleagues of the department will continue to stand fast at the posts, and will give unwavering support to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government in effectively administering Hong Kong in accordance with the law and strive to provide the public with services of the best quality.
