On 24 July 2017, Justice Centre spoke at the LegCo’s Subcommittee on Children’s Rights. We expressed concerns that there is minimal protection for children seeking protection in Hong Kong. We urged the Government to put the interest of asylum-seeking and refugee children first in all actions concerning them, in accordance with Article 3(1) of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In particular, we urge the Security Bureau not to introduce detention camps for people seeking protection in Hong Kong, especially not for children.
