  • Unis should allow independence debate: Ip Kin-yuen
Legislator Ip Kin-yuen
Education sector lawmaker Ip Kin-yuen says universities should allow debates on Hong Kong independence, even if the idea is unconstitutional.

He said in general, students should be allowed to discuss things that may be illegal so that they can understand why it's wrong.

Ip was speaking after ten university chiefs on Saturday issued a joint statement saying they don't support independence.

The lawmaker says they should further explain whether or not they will allow debates.
