SED on students banned from HKU campus
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Education, Mr Kevin Yeung, at a media session after attending radio programmes today (August 7):

Reporter: Is it fair to the students (members of the Council of the Student Union of the University of Hong Kong) because they haven’t been arrested and haven’t been convicted?  You said it is not a punishment but they can’t go into the campus and classrooms. What do you think of that?
Secretary for Education: As I said, the University of Hong Kong made the decision due to risk assessment and the control of exposure to unnecessary risks. It made the decision based on its internal procedures and own assessment. So we will respect its decision based on that.
