Rule of law in Hong Kong (28 Sep 2003)


The government in promoting Hong Kong to the international community routinely highlights the rule of law here but Winston Chu Ka-sun (Visiting Professor, University College, London) says the government has disregarded the rule of law while Chinese legal culture of emphasizing personal relationship rather than law has been adopted instead.

The Sally Aw Sian case is discussed. Hoo says the legal department should be reformed.
