UK police investigating terrorist attack  Listenfacebook
RTHK's UK corespondent, Gavin Grey, says police in London are investigating if the man who carried out the terrorist attack at the British parliament was acting alone. He says they are also trying to find out whether he had been radicalised. Grey says the police officer who was fatally stabbed by the attacker was not armed. He tells Annemarie Evans that calls are now expected for that to change.
Group encouraged by government’s response on hearsay evidence  Listenfacebook
A member of the Civil Society Law Reform Committee says they are encouraged by the response from the government over the possibility of allowing hearsay evidence to be admitted in courts, under certain circumstances. Such testimony is currently not recognised in criminal proceedings, and makes it difficult for vulnerable witnesses to give evidence in court. A member of the committee, Darcy Lynn Davison-Roberts, tells Priscilla Ng that Hong Kong is behind other common law jurisdictions on the issue.
