Hong Kong university to take no action over bannerRadio Free Asia.
University of Hong Kong Vice-chancellor Peter Mathieson said the banner, which read "Hong Kong independence", had been removed because it was unauthorised, however. "If those banners are hung without permission, then we have the right to take them down," Mathieson told reporters. "That’s what happened at the weekend [and] as far as I know, that’s where it stops."
Similar banners, which were provided by the pro-independence Hong Kong National Party, appeared in several higher education institutions as dignitaries celebrated the 67th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China on Saturday. Most were rapidly removed.
