Legal requirement for organising religious-related public order event
     It was mistakenly circulated on the Internet that Letter of No Objection is not required for organising public procession for religious purpose.

     Police today (August 30) reiterated that according to the Public Order Ordinance, it is not necessary to notify the Police for conducting public meeting for religious purpose. However, anyone who plans to organise a public procession for religious purpose with more than 30 participants, he or she still needs to notify the Police in accordance with Section 13 of the Public Order Ordinance.
