Storyline


An official of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Airport Authority on Monday slammed fake news on the internet and called for an end to violence, after an illegal rally took place at the Hong Kong International Airport, upsetting many passengers off-guard.

The illegal rally incurred many flight cancellation and blocked roads to the airport, seriously affecting the arrival and departure of many passengers.

A board member with the Airport Authority of Hong Kong, Allan Zeman on Monday said the Hong Kong International Airport has been awarded one of the best airports in the world, however, the illegal act this time "paralyzed the airport" seriously and marred the images of Hong Kong.

"Now because of what's happened, this message goes around the world. Of course, people, business people and family, other people, look at what's going on here, and they think it's a mess, and it gives a very bad name to Hong Kong, and it really hurts reputation, and of course, hurts every business and hurts everyone in Hong Kong," said Zeman.

Zeman said most of the activists who went to the airport for the illegal rally were lured by internet rumors. The fake messages on the social media tend to incite young people to engage in illegal activities. Zeman appealed to the public to be sensible and not to take extreme actions.

"There's a lot of rumors on the internet, and that causes a lot of people to believe there's a lot of fake news out there. Because of fake news, the young people and social media can get people very crazy sometimes. This is what's happened. The violence must stop," said Zeman.

The Airport Authority has also taken special measures by allowing people only with tickets for departing flights within 24 hours to enter departure halls.

Zeman said the Airport Authority should also consider measures at arrival hall where the illegal rally took place.

"So I think the Airport Authority has to look at different ways of minimizing this problem. So that it doesn't happen again, because Hong Kong cannot afford to have something like this happen at the airport. It's the lifeline of Hong Kong. It cannot have this happen again, for sure," said Zeman.
