     At around 6pm today (August 11), some crowds gathered at a shopping mall on Argyle Street, Mong Kok and behaved in a disorderly manner. Participating in such events may contravene of "taking part in an unauthorised assembly" in accordance with the Public Order Ordinance, and may commit certain offences related to participating in prohibited group gatherings under the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation. Some crowds chanted slogans which were suspected to have breached related offences under the National Security Law. Police officers attended the scene to enforce the law and conduct interceptions.

     Police request the protestors to stop gathering and leave immediately. Members of the public should refrain from taking part in such activities. Police will take enforcement action resolutely.
