Same procedure is used at the border, says Ambrose Lee Draft legislation to set up restricted zones in Wan Chai during the World Trade Organisation ministerial conference in December will be submitted to the Legislative Council next month. The Security Bureau plans to cordon off the Convention and Exhibition Centre and surrounding areas, encompassing three hotels, the Tamar site and the Wan Chai ferry pier, Secretary for Security Ambrose Lee Siu-kwong said yesterday. The zones will be established by passing a bylaw under the Public Order Ordinance, authorising the chief executive to name restricted areas where only delegates, government officials and authorised media representatives are allowed. 'This is no new concept. Restricted areas at the border are set up by the same means,' he said. Mr Lee said officials may issue permits for representatives of non-governmental organisations to enter restricted zones but the numbers would be limited. He also said authorities might bar visitors from entering Hong Kong if there were reasons to believe they could cause trouble. There had been cases where violent protesters who were denied admission had resorted to a judicial review to challenge such decisions, but Mr Lee said: 'If we make our decision according to the law, I have every confidence we will win.' He said police were fully equipped and fully capable of combating violence, although they had had no experience of handling large riots in the past four decades. 'We have prepared for the worst. Our [elite Police Tactical Unit] has enough training and practice; our equipment, including armour, is more than sufficient.' On crowd control measures for National Day on Saturday and the 'golden week' that follows, Mr Lee said more officers had been assigned to control points. He urged the public to use the Lowu checkpoint rather than Lok Ma Chau.
