1. Does the Public Order Ordinance regulate private meetings and processions?


Yes, even if the holding of the private meetings and processions does not require prior notification to the police (see answer to Question 2), other provisions of the Ordinance may also apply to these private meetings and processions, such as the offences of disorderly conduct under section 17B, unlawful assembly under section 18, and riot under section 19.
