Enhanced security measures at High Court Building
The following is issued on behalf of the Judiciary:
     The Judiciary announced today (April 24) that starting Saturday (April 27), security measures at the High Court Building (HCB) will be enhanced by extending security screening to cover all floors in the HCB.
     With effect from April 27, all court users going to all the various floors of the HCB (including the floors on LG3/F to G/F) will be required to undergo security screening at the screening areas on either LG4/F or G/F. All court users should follow the directional signs and directives of the Judiciary staff or security personnel when entering the HCB.    
     Security screening, including body screening by metal detectors and bag inspection by X-ray baggage scanners, aims to prevent prohibited items such as knives, scissors, liquids, etc, from being brought into the court premises. This is an important security measure to ensure the safety of all court users.
     As the screening procedures take time, the Judiciary urges all court users to arrive at the HCB earlier, in particular during peak hours in the morning or after lunch break.
