Door pushed in during abode raid

Immigration and police officers broke down a failed abode seeker's front door in Tsuen Wan yesterday during their seventh house arrest operation.

Ninety-six officers raided 15 premises and arrested four failed abode seekers - three men and a woman aged between 23 and 48.

Immigration staff doing difficult job

I refer to the report headlined 'Women tells of terror over arrests' (South China Morning Post, May 9).

It described how one of the right-of-abode claimants described her 'terror' as she watched footage of fellow claimants being arrested in their homes.

1,000 marchers seek halt to repatriations

More than 1,000 failed right-of-abode seekers who are fighting repatriation took to the streets again yesterday, urging the public to support them.

They vowed to fight on despite official warnings that they will be sent back within weeks.

Cheng Cho-sang, spokesman for a right-of-abode parents' group, said they would take their children back to school today.

Sensible decision is fair and just

I would like to add my views to those of Rose Yuen (South China Morning Post, April 4) on the abode issue.

While I sympathise with some of the right-of-abode seekers, they did break the law in the first place by overstaying.
