Anti-mask ruling appeal set for January

Local | 26 Nov 2019 5:01 pm

The court hearing on the appeal filed by the government yesterday against the anti-mask law ruling by the High Court will take place on January 9.

Last Monday, the High Court ruled that the Prohibition on Face Covering Regulation, introduced by the government under emergency powers last month, is unconstitutional following judicial reviews brought by 24 pro-democracy lawmakers and former legislator Leung Kwok-hung.

The court announced last Friday that it would allow the police to enforce the mask ban for seven days.
