Solution needed

I refer to the arson attack at Immigration Tower on Wednesday.


I believe that most SAR citizens will have felt upset and angered by what happened.


People who are seeking right of abode have to realise that in their attempt to secure this right, they must always obey the law. They should never do anything which could harm others or put another person's life at risk. This attack could now lead to a hardening of attitudes towards all abode-seekers. These immigrants need to know that after such violence, they cannot expect to win the sympathy of Hong Kong people. I would urge the Government to solve the problem of right of abode seekers as soon as possible.


It should make swift decisions on abode applications and those people whose applications are rejected should be deported immediately.
