CE warns over Occupy Central
(05-22 18:01)

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying says many financial institutions are preparing to sue the organisers of Occupy Central for damages if their protest leads to the business district being paralyzed.
The movement plans to mobilize more than 10,000 people to block streets in Central, if the government doesn't deliver political reform proposals that match international standards for democracy.
Leung said the protest was bound to be illegal, and the government wouldn't be pressured into implementing political reforms that don't conform with the Basic Law. He warned that the police would act against people taking part in the civil disobedience campaign. --RTHK
