Legco could limit public access during potential crisis
(04-08 15:41)

Legislative Council President, Tsang Yok-sing, said today the public could be restricted from entering the building under “very special circumstances" to ensure its proper functioning.
He was speaking after a meeting of the Legco Commission which discussed security measures following a student-led sit-in at Taiwan's Legislative Yuan.
Tsang stressed that security measures in place were adequate during normal circumstances. But he said if the secretary general believed it was necessary to take further steps, he could seek advice and endorsement from the commission.
Tsang added that councillors could meet elsewhere if the complex was occupied. --RTHK
