A political group pushing for the resignation of Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa has refused to reveal its list of members to police, even though it risks having its application for registration rejected. Anti-Tung Solidarity has also threatened to seek a judicial review if its application to the police force's licensing office is rejected. The group claims the Hong Kong government is using political pressure and delaying tactics to thwart its registration. While most applications made under the Societies Ordinance are processed within two weeks, the group has yet to receive a reply seven weeks after submitting its application. When group convenor Shiu Yeuk-yuen inquired about the progress of the application, the police sent a letter to the group last Saturday requesting further information. It inquired about the group's aims, action plans, sources of funding, affiliations with overseas bodies and its members. Anti-Tung Solidarity said it provided all details requested except for a list of its members, although it did name its 15-member executive committee. Mr Shiu said: 'We don't have any right to hand out a list of members to them [the police] as this would infringe our members' privacy.' The group has about 3,000 members. It has vowed to proceed with an anti-Tung rally in Chater Garden on October 12 even if its registration is rejected. A police spokesman yesterday said that the force would take follow-up action when the relevant information had been received. He said the application would be processed in the normal way. Meanwhile, a young people's group has launched an online forum for the discussion of Hong Kong politics. The Anti-23 Newsgroup can be found at news://anti-tung.org/anti-23 .
