Annemarie Evans asked Smith whether the ruling has caused widespread strife in South Korea.
Uber services are the same as other illegal car hiring services: lawmaker Listen
Transport sector lawmaker, Frankie Yick, says Uber is no different from other illegal car hiring services. He made the remark after five Uber drivers were fined HK$10,000 each for driving vehicles for hire without a permit and valid third-party insurance. They were also disqualified from driving for a year, but that ban has been suspended pending their appeals. Jim Gould asked Yick whether changes should be made to the transport laws.
UN’s findings on Rohingya Muslim minority very credible Listen
A top UN official says "crimes against humanity" are being committed by the military and police against Myanmar's Rohingya Muslim minority. The UN's special rapporteur for human rights in Myanmar, Yanghee Lee, was speaking as part of a BBC investigation. Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been in power for almost a year, declined an interview. Lee has not been given free access to the conflict area in Myanmar. But after speaking to refugees in Bangladesh she says the situation is "far worse" than had been expected. RTHK's southeast Asia correspondent, Larry Jagan, tells Annemarie Evans that the UN's findings are very credible.
