Public attendance arrangements for forthcoming Court of Final Appeal hearing
The following is issued on behalf of the Judiciary:
     As indicated in the Court of Final Appeal (CFA) website, the CFA will deliver the judgment for a case concerning the question of bail under the National Security Law on February 9 (next Tuesday). The hearing is expected to be relatively short.
     In light of the crowded situation outside the CFA building on February 1 (Monday), the Judiciary will make some adjustments to the arrangements regarding public attendance.
     A larger number of seats (around 80) will be reserved for members of the public. These seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. No admission tickets will be distributed.
     Courts users who wish to attend the hearing will be required to line up at designated areas outside the CFA Building. To ensure orderly arrangements and fairness, no queue-jumping and no queuing for others will be allowed. Court users should follow the instructions of the Judiciary staff and security personnel.
