Lawmaker accuses government of allowing vote-rigging  Listenfacebook
The government has denied that it's opening the floodgates for vote-rigging through its new voter-registration exercise. It's proposing to tighten rules by the end of this year, so that voters have to submit proof of address when they move. The proposal does not cover new voter registration. Democratic Party lawmaker, Lam Cheuk-ting, alleges that the administration did this intentionally to allow cheating. He speaks to Jim Gould.
Building of youth hostel next to temple “inappropriate”  Listenfacebook
Concern groups say plans to build a 21-storey youth hostel right next to the historic Man Mo Temple on Hollywood Road are "inappropriate" - and are asking town planners to reject the proposal. The public will have the opportunity to air their concerns to the Town Planning Board on Friday -- a year after town planners gave the proposal the green light. Katty Law from the Central and Western Concern Group speaks to Annemarie Evans.
BJP leaders in India to face trial  Listenfacebook
India's supreme court has ruled that several senior figures in the country's governing party, the BJP, must face charges of criminal conspiracy. The long-running legal case relates the demolition of the Babri Mosque - in the city of Ayodhya - in 1992, and the Hindu-Muslim riots which followed. RTHK's correspondent in Delhi, Murali Krishnan, says the incident is still a very emotive subject in India. He tells Annemarie Evans that it also shows how slow the wheels of justice move in the country.
