AbstractThe warrantless entry power proposed for Article 23 offences lacks legitimacy in Hong Kong’s civil society. The proposed new power is assessed against three constitutional principles of legitimacy applicable in the context of police entry, search and seizure. The new warrantless power is presumptively objectionable, and as such, the government carries a heavy burden to show that the power is necessary and has sufficient safeguards to avoid a disproportionable impact on the fundamental right to privacy.
