Jailed legislator Chim Pui-chung's prison warders will be dressed in plain clothes when he attends the Legco session to decide the future of his seat. The two guards will sit in the new area for the disabled while Chim, whose handcuffs will be removed, will use his own seat during the motion which seeks to disqualify him from the council next Wednesday. But four newly-approved seats in the chamber for officials will have to be temporarily removed. After meeting representatives of the Correctional Services Department (CSD), the Legco Secretariat's deputy secretary-general, Law Kam-sang, said the officers would be dressed in plainclothes at the Legco President's request. The move was to ensure the 'dignity' of Legco would not be compromised, Mr Law said. He said Legco would treat the sitting as an ordinary one and would not deploy extra security staff. Three CSD representatives visited Legco to prepare for Chim's visit. It only emerged yesterday that the department had placed conditions on Chim's leave from the Stanley Prison - where he is serving three years for conspiring to forge share transfer documents - to attend the sitting. 'According to the agreement to allow him to come to Legco, he will only attend the debate on his status,' a CSD spokesman said. Although Chim would be entitled to make a 15-minute speech during the motion debate which seeks to disqualify him from Legco membership, the press will not be allowed to interview him. 'There will be no press arrangements. Chim is there to fight for his own seat. Nothing more and nothing less,' the CSD spokesman said. The CSD was not expected to work out the timing for bringing Chim to Legco until the Secretariat confirms on Monday the agenda for the sitting. The CSD spokesman expected the debate would not take place before 4pm. As Chim is 'not a high-risk prisoner', he will be allowed to enter the chamber without handcuffs from one of the six entrances available. The spokesman said Chim would be handcuffed again after the motion and escorted back to Stanley regardless of the result. A CSD spokesman said that for security reasons, neither Chim's route inside the building nor the number of CSD staff deployed would be revealed.
