《全民新聞台》[港聞]入境事務處拘十六非法勞工及兩名僱主 涉嫌聘用非法勞工


[2023年5月18日]

入境事務處(入境處)五月十五日至昨日(五月十八日)一連四日在全港各區展開反非法勞工行動,分別是代號「光影行動」、「曙光行動」,及連同香港警務處執行的「風沙行動」。行動中共拘捕十四名懷疑非法勞工及兩名涉嫌聘用非法勞工的僱主。


反非法勞工行動中,入境處特遣隊人員搜查了七十五個目標地點,包括停車場、工業大廈、裝修中單位、住宅大廈、餐廳及零售店鋪,共拘捕九名懷疑非法勞工及兩名涉嫌聘用非法勞工的僱主。被捕的懷疑非法勞工為三男六女,年齡介乎二十八至五十一歲。當中一男兩女持有不允許僱傭工作的擔保書(俗稱「行街紙」)。同時,兩名男子亦涉嫌行使及管有懷疑偽造身份證。因涉嫌聘用非法勞工被捕的僱主為一男一女,年齡分別為三十八及五十一歲。於「風沙行動」中,執法人員於上水嘉富坊及新運路共拘捕五名涉嫌非法從事水貨活動而違反逗留條件的內地旅客,分別為四男一女,年齡介乎二十六至四十九歲。該批懷疑用作水貨用途的貨物主要包括化妝品、日用品及護膚品。


入境處發言人說,所有旅客在未獲入境處處長批准前,無論受薪與否,均不得在港從事任何僱傭工作。違例者會遭檢控,一經定罪,最高刑罰為罰款五萬元及監禁兩年。協助及教唆他人違反逗留條件者同罪。


發言人重申,僱用不可合法受僱的人是嚴重罪行。根據《入境條例》,僱主若僱用不可合法受僱的人,而該人是非法入境者、受遣送離境令或遞解離境令規限的人、逾期逗留或被拒入境人士,最高刑罰由原來的罰款三十五萬元及監禁三年,大幅提高至罰款五十萬元和監禁十年,以反映有關罪行的嚴重性。而有關公司的董事、經理、秘書、合夥人等,亦可能需負上刑事責任。高等法院曾頒布判刑指引,聘用非法勞工的僱主須被判即時入獄。


The Immigration Department (ImmD) mounted a series of territory-wide anti-illegal worker operations codenamed "Lightshadow", "Twilight" and a joint operation with the Hong Kong Police Force codenamed "Windsand" for four consecutive days from May 15 to yesterday (May 18). A total of 14 suspected illegal workers and two suspected employers were arrested.


During the anti-illegal worker operations, ImmD Task Force officers raided 75 target locations including car parks, industrial buildings, premises under renovation, residential buildings, restaurants and retail shops. Nine suspected illegal workers and two suspected employers were arrested. The arrested suspected illegal workers comprised three men and six women, aged 28 to 51. Among them, one man and two women were holders of recognisance forms, which prohibit them from taking any employment. In addition, two men were suspected of using and being in possession of a forged Hong Kong identity card. Furthermore, one man and one woman, aged 38 and 51, were suspected of employing the illegal workers and were also arrested.


Furthermore, during operation "Windsand", five Mainland visitors comprising four men and one woman, aged 26 to 49, were arrested for breaching their conditions of stay by being involved in suspected parallel trading activities at Ka Fu Close and San Wan Road in Sheung Shui district. The goods mainly included cosmetics products, daily necessities and skincare products.


The spokesman warned, "As stipulated in section 38AA of the Immigration Ordinance, an illegal immigrant, a person who is the subject of a removal order or a deportation order, an overstayer or a person who was refused permission to land is prohibited from taking any employment, whether paid or unpaid, or establishing or joining in any business. Offenders are liable upon conviction to a maximum fine of $50,000 and up to three years' imprisonment. Under the prevailing laws, it is an offence to use or possess a forged Hong Kong identity card or a Hong Kong identity card related to another person. Offenders are liable to prosecution and upon conviction face a maximum fine of $100,000 and up to 10 years' imprisonment."
