Suspension of some banking services
The following is issued on behalf of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority:

     The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) has been informed by banks that services of some bank branches and ATMs are temporarily suspended due to vandalisation of banking facilities. The banks are assessing the extent of disruptions and will provide updates in due course.

     Bank customers are advised to take note of the situation and pay attention to notifications made by the banks. They may also visit the unaffected ATMs, or use online banking and other electronic banking services as far as possible.

     The HKMA condemns the repeated acts of vandalism against the banking facilities in Hong Kong. The expression of opinions should be conducted in a peaceful manner, without affecting the public's access to banking services.
