法政匯思就北京回應香港高等法院有關禁蒙面法判決的聲明 (Statement on Beijing’s Reaction to High Court’s Mask Ruling)

香港高等法院於2019年11月18日裁定香港特區政府引用《緊急情況規例條例》(下稱《緊急法》)禁止市民於公眾地方蒙面的規例「不符合基本法」,並強調該於2019年10月5日起生效的規例過分地限制基本權利及自由。(On 18 November 2019, the High Court ruled that the Hong Kong SAR government’s ban on face coverings in public places under the Emergency Regulations Ordinance (the “ERO”) was “incompatible with the Basic Law” and that the new law, which had gone into effect since 5 October, imposed excessive restrictions on fundamental rights and freedoms.)

法政匯思就社會進一步動盪的聲明 (Statement on Further Escalation of Social Unrest)

近日,警隊的行為就如國際特赦組織所言越見低劣。這皆因政府漠視其專家 提供的建議,並以歇斯底里、毫無章法可言的策略回應持續的動盪。(Police conduct has seen, in the words of Amnesty International, ‘another shocking low’ [1] in recent days as the Government ignored constructive feedback by its own experts and hysterically responded to the ongoing unrest without any rational strategy.)

【抗暴之戰】中六生遭扑爆頭壓斷手骨後無條件釋放 警叫簽「曱甴紙」

法政匯思大律師李安然指,無論當事人有否受傷,假若警方於無合理懷疑下拘捕巿民,有機會涉嫌非法禁錮及使用不必要武力,事主可提出民事索償,「咁着黑衫當然唔係犯法,好多警察都係咁着」,而戴口罩亦有合理辯解條款,未必會觸犯《禁止蒙面規例》。

律師質疑官沾手檢控違原則

法政匯思成員、大律師蘇俊文分析,攜有一件物品不代表一定會拿出來使用,即使使用也未必作非法用途,一個人攜帶某物件前往遊行,極其量證明到該人有意圖在遊行中使用該物品。曾任講師的他舉例指,他用雷射筆是教學用途,攜帶雷射筆去遊行亦可以是指向地面或建築物,甚至完全不使用;若被告將來上訴,傷害警員眼睛是否攜帶雷射筆的唯一意圖,或是可爭辯之處。

談大馬爺繼任人

行內一向喜歡稱呼法官為「老爺」及「奶奶」。因終審法院首席法官為香港司法機構之首,老爺中的老爺。因此,我們便習慣稱馬道立首席法官為「大馬爺」。2019年10月31日,司法機構發出題為 〈終審法院首席法官馬道立於二O二一年一月年屆六十五歲退休〉 的新聞稿。內文稱大馬爺將於六十五歲大壽當天離任,並期望可於2020年夏季前完成下任首席法官的遴選及委任工作。

香港頒禁令阻起底警員! 專家:限制過廣且含糊 瀰漫極大白色恐怖

「法政匯思」成員、香港大律師蘇俊文表示,禁制令範圍廣闊且字眼不夠仔細,容易引起爭議。例如,若有人拍下影片顯示警方執法不當,也可能觸犯禁令,等同於「變相阻撓市民伸張正義」。
