Govt respects HKU decision

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung said today the Government respects the University of Hong Kong’s decision to deny all students who attended the HKU Students’ Union Council meeting on July 7 from accessing the campus.   At a media session after attending radio programmes, Mr Yeung made the response when he was asked if it is fair to those council members when they have not yet been arrested nor convicted.   He 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.”
