Lusa - Business News - Macau: Air connection with Hong Kong airport cancelled - authorities




Macau, China, Aug. 12, 2019 (Lusa) - The maritime connection between Macau and Hong Kong International Airport, which usually takes place in the early evening, has been cancelled, the authorities said on Monday. In a statement, the Maritime Affairs and Water Services Bureau (DSAMA) said that the direct connection at 7.45 p.m. (12.45 p.m. in Lisbon) between the Passenger Maritime Terminal of the Outer Harbour (Macau) and the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) will not take place, following the decision of the Hong Kong authorities to cancel flights departing from the Chinese special administrative region. The Airport Authority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region said that all flights scheduled for Monday’s departure from the HKIA were cancelled after thousands of anti-government demonstrators have invaded what is one of the busiest airports in the world.
The aeroplanes bound for Hong Kong are still allowed to land, but the rest have also been cancelled, they added. The demonstration marked the fourth consecutive day of protests in downtown Lantau, after another weekend of clashes between police and demonstrators in various parts of the city, which resulted in several injured and at least 16 arrests, which have exceeded 600 since the beginning of June.
The social challenge began in June, triggered by the presentation of a proposal to amend the extradition law, which would allow the government and courts of the special administrative region to extradite suspected criminals to jurisdictions without prior agreement, such as mainland China.
The proposal was, however, suspended, but the demonstrations have become widespread and now denounce what the demonstrators claim is an "erosion of freedoms" in the former British colony, also calling for measures to implement universal suffrage.
Since mid-June, the protestors have been demanding the resignation of the current head of government, an independent inquiry into police violence and the release of the detainees during the protests.
The transfer of Hong Kong and Macau to the People's Republic of China in 1997 and 1999, respectively, took place under the principle of "one country, two systems", which is precisely what opponents of the changes to the law claim is now at issue..
For China's two special administrative regions, a period of 50 years has been agreed with a high degree of autonomy at executive, legislative and judicial level, with the central Chinese government responsible for foreign relations and defence.
