Mainland Laws to Apply in Hong Kong Rail Link Station
(Hong Kong) — Hong Kong’s legislators have passed a controversial bill granting law enforcement powers to mainland immigration officers in the city-center terminus of its new high-speed railway.
The city’s Legislative Council (LegCo) voted to allow the establishment of a joint mainland-Hong Kong border checkpoint in West Kowloon Station, the only Hong Kong stop on the new Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL) connecting the city to the Chinese mainland. Forty LegCo members voted for the bill, while 20 opposed it, with one abstention and one nullified vote.
