Hong Kong justice secretary slammed in row over judicial rulings related to Occupy protests

(SCMP) The Progressive Lawyers Group on Monday questioned Yuen's failure to defend the judiciary against what the group saw as "unwarranted attacks on the judiciary". "We ... call on the secretary for justice, who under common law tradition and convention is tasked with being the ultimate defender of the judiciary, to speak out clearly and forcefully against such outrageous and scurrilous attacks on the judiciary," the group said in a statement.
