Refugee camps in Hong Kong

【明報專訊】The first batches of Vietnamese refugees lived in detention camps (羈留營) run by Hong Kong Correctional Services (香港懲教署). Education and recreational facilities were supplied by charities. Initially, those camps were open. Refugees were free to go out to work. Because security had worsened and refugees had increased, closed detention camps were set up. One purpose of the move was to prevent refugees from snatching locals' jobs.
