今期重點:捍衛網路及言論自由

6月至今:警方提出2444披露資料要求、643移除資料要求

我近日透過議會質詢,要求警方交代自本年6月以來就『反送中』運動採取的執法行動、人手安排、以及偵查工作等。政府回應指由今年6月至11月30日期間,共向互聯網服務供應商 / 網絡平台 / 網站提出2 444項披露資料的要求及643項移除資料要求。(閱讀全文

文章:立法打擊假新聞恐成言論審查

警方毋須經過任何機制便可以決定什麼是「沒有確實證據的指控」,警方進行「網上巡邏」不應變成清除批評警隊的言論,侵犯市民對警隊表達不滿的自由。政府答覆許智議員的立法會質詢時透露,警方今年截至11月30日,共向社交平台要求621次移除帖子,比2018年的32次急增18倍,次數為10個部門之首,另要求網站移除內容34次。(閱讀全文

改革區議會運作 增加透明度

目前各區區議會公開資訊的數量和格式不一致,大部分資料非機器可讀格式,而且部分重要決定(例如關於撥款申請的決定)是以文件傳閱方式作出而沒有會議紀錄。我關注到過往區議會不透明的運作阻礙市民參與議政及監察議會運作,今個月透過質詢要求政府改善問題。(閱讀全文

 

跟進學校系統的個人資料保障

有8間學校由教育局提供的網上校管系統(WebSAMS)被人惡意攻擊及入侵,當中有3間學校出現個人資料外洩。我去信教育局,關注政府會否為全港使用WebSAMS的學校提供恆常資助,並安排獨立資訊保安專家為系統定期進行全面審查,避免類似事件再次發生。(閱讀全文
 

【科學園催淚煙關注】科學園管理層會見園區人士

香港科技園公司代表早前應我、楊岳橋議員和三位鄰近地區的候任區議員的要求,公開會面園區工作人士,回應關注和聆聽意見。管理層表示第一階段的檢測將於1月中公佈,目前已更換所有大樓的空氣調節系統的濾網、發放自行清理催淚煙殘餘物的指引及安排清洗停車場等。
 

今年1月至今過600名香港市民遭內地拘留

就有一名早前任職英國駐香港總領事館的香港居民今年8月於高鐵西九龍站的內地口岸區時遭內地執法人員帶返內地深圳羅湖派出所,並在被扣留期間遭不人道對待,我於立法會內提出質詢,關注香港人在內地的基本人權保障。(閱讀全文

香港不應作轉運科技白手套

為中國把外國研發的科技透過香港企業作「白手套」轉運內地,轉運港模式是否令香港發展創新科技真正能夠長遠獲益,對香港的相關產業和人才創造價值?香港創科產業發展的命脈,不應該是為內地做「白手套」,而是真正建立科研能力和應用研發。(閱讀全文

🗣️ Council works

 

Online tool for voter registration launched

In a bid to urge more Hong Kong people register as voters in the geographic and functional constituencies, the Professionals Guild released an online tool this week to push for the call. The tool aims to create an electronic voter registration form and allow users to submit the form online to the Registration and Electoral Office. (Website)

 

Enhancing transparency in District Councils

There are widespread inconsistencies in the quantities and formats of the public information provided by various District Councils. Also, most of the data uploaded onto their websites are not in machine-readable formats, and some important decisions (such as funding approvals) are not recorded in any minutes of meetings but only by way of circulation of papers. The obscure operations of the DCs have been long criticised, hindering policy discussion and public scrutiny. I urged the government to open up the data from the DCs to enhance the transparency of operations and to encourage members of the public to participate in district affairs. (Read more)

 

3000 information removal/ disclosure requests by Police since June

In my recent Council question, I requested the Police to disclose data and information on their law enforcement actions, manpower deployment and investigation work since June this year, and it was discovered in the government reply that the Police has made 2444 information disclosure requests and 643 information removal requests to Internet service providers, Internet platforms and websites. It was also revealed that until November this year, the Police has issued 621 requests to social media platforms urging for removing posts, a figure that is almost 20 times higher than the 32 in 2018.

Urging for more support to schools on information security

Eight schools adopting the WebSAMS provided by the Education Bureau were found with data breach in the aftermath of cyberattacks. I issued a letter to the Bureau subsequently urging for more information on the incident and funding support to schools to upgrade their information security system and arrange regular audit by independent information security experts.

 

Inspection and cleaning of dioxins in Science Park

Responding to the call in my joint-letter together with Hon Alvin Yeung and three newly elected District Councillors, the management of Hong Kong Science and Technology Park met with the Science Park community on December 6th. The results from the first phase of inspection will be issued in mid-January next month. It was also announced that the replacement of air-conditioning filters of all buildings in the Science park was completed. Guidelines on office cleaning was also issued and cleaning of car park was also arranged.
 

Over 600 Hong Kong citizens detained in mainland this year

In August, a Hong Kong resident employed by the British Consulate General in Hong Kong was taken away at the mainland port area of the XRL West Kowloon Station by mainland law enforcement officers. He alleged that during his detention, he was subjected to inhumane treatments. I questioned the government this month on the violation of basic human rights of Hong Kong citizens detained in mainland. (Read more)

Letter to Hong Kong: Freedom of expression must not be stifled in the name of countering “fake news”

The issue at hand is not fake news. The issue at hand is freedom of expression, disguised by the authority in the name of countering misinformation. We must continue to guard against Internet censorship because no one else will save us. It is our — the people’s own — free opinion vs the government’s version of the only truth — that is what it is all about. (Read more)

 

Erosion of freedoms, not US law, that investors will fret about

While our government and the pro-establishment members are criticising the legislation of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act by the United States, they have misplaced the technology policy focus of Hong Kong. We should support local industry and nurture more technology talents here, and not to deliver white-glove services for China. (Read more)
