Top court’s decision could have serious consequences: barrister Listen
Barrister Margaret Ng says the application for leave to appeal by Youngspiration pair Sixtus Leung and Yau Wai-ching involved very important and fundamental issues that affect the rule of law in Hong Kong. Ng, who sat through the hearing in the Court of Final Appeal, says one of issues is whether there is any limit on the powers of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to interpret the territory's laws, as it did in the case of the duo before they were disqualified as lawmakers. The former Civic Party legislator also says she's disappointed that the court refused to show any interest to hear the case. Ng told Annemarie Evans that this could have serious consequences in future.
