Hong Kong government to announce new law banning masks during public assemblies in bid to crack down on anti-government protesters

Hong Kong’s embattled government is to on Friday announce a ban on people wearing masks at protests, sources have told the Post. Officials are planning to impose the ban through legislation under a tough colonial-era emergency law in an attempt to end the street violence during anti-government protests that have been continuing for nearly four months.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor will hold a special meeting of her de facto cabinet, the Executive Council, to impose the ban, according to the sources.
