Hong Kong: no plans to introduce laws to stop violence

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said that the administration had no plans to execute emergency powers to introduce laws to stop the violence that continues to escalate in the territory controlled by China.

The demonstrations continued at the weekend, some so violent that thousands of people challenged old laws from the time of the colonial era prohibiting the wearing of masks.

The ban on the wearing of masks was introduced last Saturday October 5, by legislation giving the authorities the power to intervene in any way imaginable, in time of crisis.
