Examples of interception in a Sentence

  1. Maria Tam:

    The emergency legislation is something that is left behind by the colonial British government. It's nothing to do with the Basic Law.

We have different articles in the police force ordinance and articles in the public order ordinance which we can still invoke to control the situation. We haven't got to the stage when we really have to engage in enacted laws by the chief executive with the executive council to, for example, enact anti-mask or interception of internet messages. We're quite a distance from that.
