  • Description

    ONE.
    TELEPHOTO SHOTS OF POLICE TRAINING SCHOOL, FANLING CONTINGENT (NEAR BORDER) SHOWING TRAINEES ON PARADE. (GIS WOULD NOT ALLOW US INSIDE). BORDER AT LAK MA CHAU SHOWING FENCE ALONG RIVER BORDER ON H.K. SIDE WITH THE TOP OF THE FENCE BENT OVER TOWARDS CHINA, IN OTHER WORDS TO STOP PEOPLE COMING FROM CHINA NOT GOING INTO CHINA. POLICE POST THERE. THE BARRIER AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE RESTRICTED AREA THERE.


    TWO.
    SHA TAU KOK A TOWN ON THE EASTERN END OF THE BORDER WHICH IS HALF ON EACH SIDE OF THE BORDER. TELEPHOTO SHOTS FROM AS CLOSE ONE CAN GET WITHOUT PERMISSION. THEN: THE TUG FROM CHINA MOORED IN THE TYPHOON SHELTER IN H.K... THE MARINE POLICE BASE IN THE SAME SHELTER (YAMATAI IN KOWLOON). THESE BOATS AND OTHERS PATROL THE WATERS LOOKING FOR BOATS RUNNING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN FROM MACAU OR FROM CHINA AMONGST OTHER DUTIES SUCH AS PREVENTING SMUGGLING AND DRUG RUNNING. ON THE BORDER THERE ARE AT LEAST FOUR POLICE STATIONS ON POSTS ON THE EDGE OF THE RESTRICTED ZONE OR JUST OUTSIDE IT. YOU COULD MENTION THAT GIS INSISTS THAT THERE IS NO EXTRA PATROL ACTIVITY BECAUSE OF THE PRESENT SITUATION BUT THEY REFUSED TO FACILITIES TO FILM THE NORMAL PATROL ACTIVITIES OR EVEN THE POLICE TRAINING IN PATROLLING AT THE SCHOOL NEAR FANLING. NOR WOULD THEY ALLOW ME OUT IN THE POLICE PATROL BOATS.


    THREE.
    THE "TIMOR" AT THE BUOY IN HONGKONG HARBOUR.
