7k people vaccinated

About 7,000 people received their first doses of the vaccine under the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme today, the Government announced.   A cumulative total of about 13,600 people have been vaccinated since February 22, it said.   The Government called on the citizens of the five priority groups to get vaccinated early so that the economy and people’s way of life could return to normal as soon as possible.   Getting vaccinated protects not only yourself but also family members and friends and will help reduce the risk of a community outbreak, it added. http://dlvr.it/Rtd2BK

SJ explains counsel engagement

Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng today said the Department of Justice (DoJ) engaged an outside counsel due to the complexity of a case.   Ms Cheng made the statement this afternoon when speaking to reporters at the Legislative Council.   She pointed out that many good lawyers in Hong Kong can handle difficult cases, but the case concerned is very complicated.   “For this particular one, as stated in the judgment of Justice Poon, this is a very complicated and difficult case and also with the view that the laws in Hong Kong may be further developed, we had decided, and it was approved by the judge, to engage an outside counsel, David Perry, who of course is one of the top silks, a very formidable silk, from London.”   Ms Cheng noted that Mr Perry would no longer be involved in the case.   “He had expressed concerns about the pressures that we have seen in the media, in the UK community from all sides and also the question about quarantine that we have here in Hong Kong.   “For those reasons he has told us and indicated that we should proceed on schedule without him. That’s what we are doing, and that’s exactly how it has happened.”
