Press statement issued on 5 October 2014 by the Honourable Andrew Li Kwok Nang, former Chief Justice of the Court of Final Appeal
The young represents our future. Through their peaceful demonstrations in recent days, the students' ideals and aspirations for democracy have been fully understood and are respected.
The demonstrations have caused disruptions to the life of the community. In the interests of the community which the students must also understand and respect, it is now time for them to leave the protest venue.
No one would like to see the students getting hurt. I sincerely urge the students to leave immediately. Otherwise there is a danger to their safety.
