Group proposes mainland border post for express rail

Local | 25 Sep 2017 1:35 pm

A concern group is calling for express rail border clearance facility to be set up either Shenzhen north or Futian. 

The group said its leaders met on Sunday and decided to give their alternate proposal to the Government officials. 

The Government proposal is to locate the mainland immigration officers in a leased out area of the West Kowloon rail terminus. This is opposed by pro-democracy groups who say that this is against the Basic Law provisions which prohibit mainland officials operating in Hong Kong. 

The Co-location Concern Group's spokeswoman Tanya Chan called on officials to discuss the feasibility of the proposal.

She said the Government has a duty to listen to different opinions, but said the officials are yet to give them a chance to present their concerns.

"I hope that [now] we have chosen a proposal, we can arrange a meeting with them and hope they can talk to us frankly and openly," she said.-RTHK
