Hong Kong bans posting of police officers' personal details

Hong Kong bans posting of police officers' personal detailsHong Kong authorities won a temporary court order banning anyone from posting personal details or photos of police officers online, in their latest effort to clamp down on the city’s protest movement. The wide-ranging order prohibits unlawfully “publishing, communicating or disclosing” officers’ details including their Facebook and Instagram account IDs or photos of officers or their family members. The order, in effect until Nov. 8, also prohibits “intimidating, molesting, harassing, threatening, pestering or interfering” with police officers or their relatives.
