The PLA Garrison is being pressed to disclose more about its officers' homes on Hong Kong Island. The Provisional Central and Western District Board decided yesterday to write again to the Security Bureau for details about the officers' quarters in the district. The decision came after the PLA snubbed the board's request for Garrison representatives to address yesterday's meeting. It was said residents were concerned at the presence of uniformed officers in apartment blocks and shopping malls. Garrison Commander Lieutenant-General Liu Zhenwu's office replied in writing it would not be present because it did not want to interfere in SAR affairs. The Security Bureau also refused to disclose details saying the quarters were the Garrison's internal affairs. Democrat Kam Nai-wai, who moved the motion, was disappointed neither party would clarify matters. He said the snub would only deepen residents' doubts. 'Government officials in Hong Kong are used to explaining to the public their policies. It proves the PLA does not understand our ways of operation well,' he said. General Liu recently moved into the Peak mansion, Headquarter House, formerly occupied by the Commander British Forces. About 60 officers occupy flats in Bonham Road and Queen's Lines.
