A group of local police inspectors are refusing to abandon their oath of allegiance to the Queen and have vowed to quit the force from midnight on Monday. Despite threats of disciplinary action, they plan to make a public appeal today to the Queen, the British Government and the Governor not to be compelled to serve the post-July 1 government. In a statement issued through the office of legislator James To Kun-sun last night, the 'small group of police inspectors' said they had refused to abandon their oath of allegiance to the Queen and would not serve the SAR government because of 'reasons of political, legal and personal beliefs'. They petitioned the Governor last week for early retirement on June 30. It has been provided to all expatriates employed by Her Majesty's Overseas Civil Service who were on the same permanency and pension terms as the inspectors. The inspectors said the Government refused their request, warning they would face disciplinary action as deserters and their pensions would be forfeited if they failed to report for duty. They said no explanation was given and they had no opportunity to state their case. 'The situation is very urgent and the inspectors are very anxious as there are only five days left before they will be compelled to serve the SAR police force,' they said. Expatriate officers employed by the Overseas Civil Service were offered early retirement. Mr To said last night: 'These people do not really want to talk about politics. But I think we have to respect the feelings of some people who do not want to serve the future government. 'Why are the gweilos given the opportunity to choose whether to serve the SAR government in accordance with their conscience, but not the local Chinese? Some of them joined the police force more than 20 years ago when there was no Joint Declaration.'
