Legal responsibilities of express rail passengers will not increase, Hong Kong's justice minister stresses

March 14, 2017

The legal responsibilities of passengers going through a joint immigration facility at the West Kowloon terminus for the express rail would not be increased nor have their legal rights reduced under the proposed co-location arrangement, Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen Kwok-keung said on Tuesday.

Yuen made the remarks—without elaboration—in Beijing as he concluded a two-day trip with Secretary for Transport and Housing Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung where they held discussions with mainland officials in a bid to break a deadlock on how co-location arrangements can work in the West Kowloon Terminus.
