The Mass Transit Railway Corp of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region announced on Friday night that it has obtained an interim injunction from the High Court banning people from interfering or damaging operations at all stations and trains of its railway network, including the West Kowloon high-speed rail station.

The injunction is effective until next Friday.

It was issued because of recent repeated instances where station facilities were vandalized, MTR staff were harassed and the safety of MTR staff and passengers was threatened.

According to an MTR statement, the injunction will restrain persons from unlawfully and willfully obstructing or interfering with the proper use of the city's railway network, including subway stations, trains and the West Kowloon Station of high-speed rail, or damaging any relevant properties, or using any threatening, abusive, obscene or offensive language or willfully interfering with the comfort or convenience of any MTR staff at any station.
