今期重點:保障市民私隱

關注警方解鎖被捕人士手機

有反送中示威者被捕後表示,其已上鎖手機內部分即時通訊紀錄被控方列為呈堂證據之一,但他在被捕後從未向警方透露其手機的解鎖密碼,而他上庭前亦未獲告知警方取得有關搜查令。我在議會內提出質詢,要求政府解釋類似事件,並要求立例規管執法機關進行電子蒐證工作。(閱讀全文

截取通訊監管制度落後 須立即改革

政府多年來對互聯網時代中落後的《截取通訊及監察條例》一直不作更新,警察隨便向互聯網服務供應商索取用戶資料但全無監管;再加上在拘捕時用「合理懷疑」,警方便可任意檢取市民的智能電話而毋須得到手令,令香港人的通訊私隱看似受到憲法承諾和保障,其實上是千瘡百孔,政府還要繼續逃避責任多久?(閱讀全文

私隱條例修訂必須全面公開諮詢

政府選擇性就《私隱條例》提出修訂建議,卻採取「頭痛醫頭、腳痛醫腳」的方式,透明度比起10年前更加倒退。試問怎能說服社會香港未來的《私隱條例》可以應對未來發展智慧城市和數據使用帶來的新挑戰,令市民能夠信任?(閱讀全文
 

【發言短片】莫乃光:私隱條例修訂必須諮詢公眾!
 

【發言短片】立法會保安事務委員會會議上,我再次要求政府修訂《截取通訊及監察條例》去限制警方取得網絡通訊(例如手機及網絡伺服器)的資料(包括通訊內容、元資料及個人資料)。

🗣️ 議會工作

2018-19 工作報告

我最新的工作報告以『創造機遇,守護香港』為主題,去年提出的多項支援中小企數碼轉型、培育本地創科人才和支援本地IT人提升技能等的政策倡議獲政府採納並已逐漸落實。(閱讀全文
 

爭取政府增撥港台資源

據了解港台新聞部因報道反修例運動花費大增,超出年度預算約 500 萬元。同樣是為市民服務,港台卻不如其他政府部門或增撥資源。我以港台節目顧問團成員的身份,聯同另外二十多名成員聯署去信政府,要求為香港電台增加更多人手和設備。(閱讀全文

 

促進自動駕駛發展

現行法例限制駕駛人士在駕駛座椅可看到的視象顯示器所提供的資料或視景內容,以致新一代車載系統須關閉部分功能,甚至須拆除部分配件。政府回覆我的議會質詢表示,運輸署已着手研究法例修訂,計劃以「監理沙盒」的規管概念制定自動駕駛車輛規管的模式及測試所需的條件和配套。(閱讀全文

Highlights: Urging for more privacy protection

 

Concerns over access to mobile phone records by the police

It was reported that the instant messaging records of an arrestee’s locked mobile phone were admitted as part of the evidence by the prosecution, but the person had never disclosed to the Police the password for unlocking his mobile phone since his arrest and he had not been informed of a search warrant before the court hearing. I raised a Council question urging the government to clarify the incident and called for the collection of electronic evidence by law enforcement agencies to be regulated. (Read more)

 

Hong Kong’s communications interception law failing to protect privacy

For years, the Interception of Communications and Surveillance Ordinance has not been reviewed. Currently the police is not regulated for requesting Internet Service Providers to disclose user data and warrant is not required for accessing the mobile phone records of the citizens. Hong Kong people may think their privacy of communication is protected under the constitution but existing regulation is in fact flawed and insufficient to protect.

 

Amendments to the privacy law must consult the public

It is disappointing that the government has only issued a series of insufficient amendment proposals to the privacy law. Under the new proposals, the Privacy Commissioner is still not provided with the rights to prosecute and the amendments have failed to address privacy concerns arising from new technology, such as biometric data and facial recognition.

🗣️ Council work

 

2018-19 Work report issued

Digital transformation for local SMEs, upskilling of our IT workforce and talent nurturing were my work focus last year and a number of my policy proposals were adopted and implemented. (Read full report)

 

Calling for more resources for RTHK

In a bid to cover the anti-extradition protests, it was reported that the news division of RTHK has exceeded their annual operation budget by HKD5 million. However, RTHK was not offered the same support by the government as compared to other departments. I joined with a group of RTHK Board of Advisors to issue a joint-statement to the government, calling for more support and resources to RTHK.
 

Regulation Sandbox might be used for Autonomous Vehicle testing

Existing legislation imposes stringent restrictions on the visual display unit in cars, resulting in car manufacturers having to disable some advanced features or even remove them from the cars. Replying to my Council question, it was revealed that the Transport Department has commenced a study to look into the necessary legislative amendments with a view to allowing trials of innovative technologies through a “regulatory sandbox” approach, and is working in collaboration with the automobile sector to jointly stipulate a regulatory model for autonomous vehicles.
