運房局稱同意關站 非故障不需罰款 大狀:可覆核政府決定

法政匯思成員、大律師何旳匡認為,一般情况下,港鐵有責任提供有效率服務,但若有實際困難,如遇10號風球,就可關車站,「不知今次做決定的實際原因是什麼,例如港鐵是否收集到情報預計會發生恐襲?若只是因為有大型遊行及集會,似乎不應暫停列車服務」。 何旳匡:有責任助市民合法遊行 何旳匡說,市民難以挑戰港鐵的決定,但政府有責任監管港鐵,包括可向港鐵罰款或中止其專營權等,若市民認為港鐵做法違反法例要求,政府又同意港鐵做法,市民可就政府的決定提司法覆核。他稱警方已就昨天遊行發出不反對通知書,政府有責任協助市民參與合法遊行,而容許港鐵停駛的做法並無盡協助市民的責任。
