Protesters clog the departure area of Hong Kong International Airport in the evening of Aug 13.

HK court bans protesters from airport

(China Daily) -- On Wednesday morning, a Hong Kong court issued an interim injunction order, prohibiting the protesters from staying at the Hong Kong International Airport, after the aviation hub was paralysed for two days since Monday.
According to a statement issued by the Airport Authority on Wednesday about 8:30 am, the injunction order prohibits any person from unlawfully and willfully obstructing and interfering with proper use of the airport.
The interim injunction expressly provides that nothing in the interim injunction shall be construed as authorising any demonstration, protest or public order event contrary to the Public Order Ordinance.
The Airport Authority is in the process of obtaining sealed copies of the interim injunction and will publish it upon obtaining the copies.
Some protesters have been holding unauthorised public assemblies at the airport since Aug 9 and seriously obstructed to the operation of the airport on Aug 12 and 13, causing a lot of flight cancellations.
