曾蔭權坐富豪私人機遊泰 獲律政司放生

前特首曾蔭權與太太在2012年2月曾接受重慶富商張松橋豪華款待,乘坐私人飛機前往泰國旅遊勝地布吉遊玩,只支付5,900元。同月曾蔭權夫婦再接受款待,與劉鑾鴻及何柱國等富豪登上遊艇,由香港前往澳門暢遊,傳媒揭發事件後引起社會譁然,律政司最終以沒有足夠證據,未以《防止賄賂條例》或公職人員行為失當提控。

Hong Kong police: Anger swells against ‘Asia’s Finest’

Once dubbed "Asia's Finest", Hong Kong's police are fighting allegations of using excessive violence against protesters, their headquarters besieged twice in the last week as calls for an independent inquiry into their tactics swell.

【法政巴絲】你們抗爭到底,對我有些阻滯,又有甚麼所謂,香港人不會計

在這個6月份,香港人向國際展示我們市民的質素,我們和平集會,理性抗爭,就算200萬+1人上街但沒有出甚麼大亂子,香港人值得驕傲。 雖然政府已暫緩《逃犯條例》的修訂案,但衍生的問題尚未處理,包括如何處理警方濫用暴力執法,甚至乎往後的《國歌法》本地立法及「明日大嶼」計劃,其實政府都只不過是對上述事宜暫且不提,等待民怨有所減退的時候便重施故技,以上所講的幾項事宜都不是為香港人的福祉而作,就算「明日大嶼」也只不過是耗費搞大型基建,最終獲利是誰?難道大家覺得在大嶼山對開填一個島,上面建樓宇,樓價便可以降至年青人能承擔的水平嗎?

從法國黃背心運動看香港可持續抗爭的未來

2018年11月17日,法國人民因為不滿總統的政策,當日發起大規模示威,由巴黎席捲法國其他城市。示威活動隔幾日就不斷循環上演,示威者以廉宜的黃背心為記,代表反對與車輛燃料重稅有關的政策、以及夾心階層的身分。後來,整埸運動延伸至每逢周六的定期示威。說起法國黃背心運動,除了因為跟我們有類同的地方,如何將抗爭變得可持續發展,以帶來真正的改變,也是我們可以從他們身上的好與壞中引以為鑑的地方。

UK urges independent probe of June 12 clashes

The British government will cease to issue any export licenses for crowd control equipment to the Hong Kong Police for concerns of human rights violation. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, echoed by many others in Hong Kong, including the Progressive Lawyer Group, Chan Man-mun S.C. and former Chief Secretary Anson Chan, urges for a independent investigation panel to be set up to investigate whether the use of force on June 12 was consistent with guidelines.

Hong Kong police quit posts at two city hospitals after complaining they were verbally abused over extradition bill arrests

Barrister Chris Ng Chung-luen, who also signed the petition, said the police misunderstood their power. He said the privacy exemption cited by the association was not exercised by the officers themselves, but by the hospitals. That means if hospital staff decline to pass on patients’ information to officers, police cannot force them to do so.

民權觀察接3嚴重個案

法政匯思成員楊嘉瑋認為,特首應成立獨立調查委員會調查警權濫用問題,「搵真相、搵原因、檢討制度問題」。因委員會有運用司法程序權力,又有傳召專家與政府官員能力,加上制度保障受害證人不會因出庭而成為在場證據被秋後算賬。委員會主席多數由退休大法官擔任,較投訴警察課及監警會獨立。他續指,警隊可向委員會申請資料保密,由委員會審視及批核,保障警方機密。國際特赦組織補充,過去10年聯合國已三度批評香港監警制度不夠獨立。

法政匯思:要求政府成立獨立調查委員會專責調查 6.12事件

How China Can Pacify Its Ungovernable City

Progressive Lawyers Group member Antony Dapiran (in his personal capacity) shared his views on how China can pacify Hong Kong: “popular protests will keep recurring until Beijing meets the city’s long-suppressed aspirations for greater democracy”.

11監警前委員聯署促獨立委會查

警方被指濫權對付反修例示威者,民間組織及部分前高官等都呼籲成立獨立調查委員會,但港府堅持以現有監警制度處理投訴。11名監警會前委員昨聯署呼籲政府接納社會要求成立獨立調查委員會,盡快重建警民互信。法政匯思成員楊嘉緯稱,過往政府多次成立獨立調查委員會,是一個司法程序,亦可把相關調查文件保密,不能用於其他民事或刑事審訊,對所有人、尤其是投訴人有保障。他認為獨立調查委員會「可作根本性、制度上的改變,希望不會再出現6.12事件」。

Five Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protesters were arrested at public hospitals whilst seeking treatment

Chris Ng, convener of the Progressive Lawyers’ Group, said the admissibility evidence gathered at hospitals may be challenged in court if it was gathered by police in an unlawful manner. But he said police may also point to evidence that was not gathered at hospitals.

法政匯思:獨立調查委員會查6.12事件非針對警隊 

楊嘉瑋說,獨立調查委員會可在某些情況下,將部分聆訊或文件保密,若警方認為有些文件屬行動機密,亦可向委員會申請保密,而證人在委員會的作供亦不能用於其他刑事或民事訴訟中,對證人保障更大。

Hong Kong police accused of harassing hospital staff during searches for extradition bill protesters as medical and legal professionals call on officers to behave

Barrister Chris Ng Chung-luen, from the Progressive Lawyers’ Group, said that if it could be proven that police gathered evidence at the hospital in an illegal way, its admissibility in court could be challenged. However, police may not just rely on evidence gathered at a hospital, he said.

醫管局:知悉三宗警公院內拘捕行動 涉伊院仁濟廣華

法政匯思召集人吳宗鑾表示,如果警方涉非法蒐證,相關證據或未能呈堂,但亦有機會被法庭接納。

譴責圍警總 警列6行為嚴肅跟進 示威者激光射警臉 大樓內豎紙牌槍靶回應

法政匯思召集人李安然稱,初步看包圍警總可被視為未經批准的集會,激光射眼或會被指企圖傷人或傷人,堵塞出入口則或被視為故意阻撓在正當執行職務的警務人員,而擲蛋、塗鴉、膠紙遮閉路電視均有可能被指刑事毁壞。他認同若有獨立調查委員會,可全面剖析6月12日的衝突。
