    HK Disneyland "Not above the law"

    Hong Kong Disneyland was back in the headlines yesterday as the territory's chief of security warned it was not above the law after park officials asked two government health inspectors to remove their badges and caps for fear of upsetting guests.

    The inspectors were investigating a case of suspected food poisoning last month at two Disneyland restaurants when they were asked by park officials to dress less conspicuously. Both officers complied with the request.

    The move drew a stern rebuke from the government and bitter criticism of Disney's "domineering" behaviour in yesterday's papers.
    The Ming Pao Daily News accused Disneyland of trying to create its own legal jurisdiction.

    "It's easy for Hong Kongers to suspect that Disney wants to engineer special rights and turn the theme park into an independent kingdom that Hong Kong's laws can't reach," the paper said in an editorial.
    The Apple Daily, in a front-page headline, accused the park of being "too domineering".

    Secretary of Security Ambrose Lee warned Disney that it was not a law unto itself.
    "Anyone in Hong Kong has to obey the law. Disney isn't above the law," Lee told reporters Friday. The Hong Kong government also issued a statement Friday saying police officers do not need Disneyland's permission to enter the park.
