In response to the report of a suspicious parcel received by a staff member of the High Court today (July 5), the Secretary for Justice, Mr Paul Lam, SC, issued the following statement:
I am deeply concerned about the incident. In Hong Kong where the rule of law is upheld, no act of intimidation or violence which is against the law or constitutes contempt of court will be tolerated. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government will pursue seriously against any person who commits any such act and bring the culprit to justice in order to defend the integrity of the court, ensure the due administration of the justice and maintain public order.
