No interference from govt with meeting, said Lai
(03-26 16:19)

The Secretary for Security, Lai Tung-kwok, has denied that police removed a Democratic Party district councillor from a meeting of the Central and Western District Council because of his party affiliation.
The member was trying to make public a closed meeting to discuss political reform. Lai told Legco that police were called because someone was reportedly creating a nuisance and they stepped in when a scuffle erupted.
Lai said there was "absolutely no interference" in the council's operation. --RTHK
