Court issues injunction order to remove protesters from Hong Kong airport terminal after they clash

Source: South China Morning Post

Defiant anti-government protesters brought unprecedented violence to Hong Kong International Airport on Tuesday night, clashing with riot police after severely disrupting flights, even as officials secured an injunction order against those occupying the terminal building.

A source confirmed that the Airport Authority, represented by senior counsel Benjamin Yu, was granted the injunction by a judge late on Tuesday night.

It was not immediately clear what the scope of the injunction to remove the protesters would be or how it would be enforced, but technically, the order would become effective once it was posted in a public area at the airport.

The late-night chaos came after belligerent protesters spent hours detaining and assaulting a young man they claimed was an undercover agent from mainland China at the check-in area in the departure hall. He was seen later with his hands secured with cable ties and surrounded by protesters, who would not let paramedics take him away at around 10pm after he lost consciousness. The man earlier told media earlier he was from Shenzhen and went to the airport to see off friends. He denied that he was a public security officer.
