PLA garrison says HK barracks intrusion a provocation, vows resolute measures
(01-02 19:14)

The People's Liberation Army Garrison in Hong Kong said today it will take resolute and decisive measures to deal with any unauthorized intrusions at its barracks in the city.
A spokesman told Xinhua that Hong Kong police had arrested several locals who forced their way into the garrison's barracks in Central and believe the police will handle them in accordance with the law.
The garrison deems unauthorized break-ins as a serious violation of the Public Order Ordinance of Hong Kong and the Garrison Law and an overt provocation to the military, and those involved should be punished according to law, the spokesman said.
Several local residents forced their way into the PLA Garrison headquarters at Hong Kong Central last Thursday afternoon, defying a warning by the guard on duty.
Police arrested four suspects, two of whom were released on bail.
The garrison reiterates that it will take resolute and decisive measures to deal with such break-ins and the violators should bear all the consequences, the spokesman said.
The central government had also shown grave concern over the break-in. A spokesman with the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council said yesterday that all PLA garrison barracks in Hong Kong are protected by law
