The Law Society of Hong Kong Press Statement
香港律師會聲明

 

The Law Society of Hong Kong has noted various press reports on recent comments in a public forum made by Ms Leung Oi Sie Elsie, currently the Deputy Director of the Basic Law Committee of the HKSAR of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of PRC (“NPCSC”).
香港律師會留意到,近日就全國人大常委會香港基本法委員會副主任梁愛詩女士日前出席一個公開論壇時作出的言論的報導。

The Law Society of Hong Kong does not have a full transcript of Ms Leung’s comments and therefore is not in a position to fully respond to these comments. However, the Law Society of Hong Kong notes that under the Basic Law, Hong Kong courts are authorized by the NPCSC to interpret on their own, in adjudicating cases, the provisions of the Basic Law which are within the limits of autonomy of Hong Kong.
香港律師會並沒有梁女士的講話內容的詳細記錄,故難以全面作出回應。不過,香港律師會注意到,根據《基本法》,全國人大常務委員會(人大常委會)授權香港的法院在審理案件時對《基本法》關於香港特區自治範圍內的條款自行解釋。

The Law Society of Hong Kong believes that the independence of the judiciary in Hong Kong is deeply established, and the quality, integrity and credibility of our judges are well respected.
香港律師會認為,香港的司法獨立已被清楚確立,而香港法官的質素、品格及威望,一直都受到尊重。

Given the expressed concerns raised by the community over the effects of an interpretation of the Basic Law by the NPCSC on the independence of the judiciary and the rule of law as Hong Kong’s core values, the Law Society of Hong Kong believes the Government should act cautiously when considering whether to seek an interpretation of any provisions of the Basic Law.
基於社會曾經對由人大常委會對《基本法》的解釋對司法獨立及法治的影響,而法治亦是香港的核心價值之一,香港律師會認為,政府在考慮是否就《基本法》的條文作出解釋時,應該謹慎行事。

On the question of Mainland mothers giving births in Hong Kong, given established legal principles, the Law Society of Hong Kong considers that a referral to the NPCSC to interpret Article 24(2)(1) of the Basic Law will undermine the authority and standing of the Court of Final Appeal and likely damage the rule of law in Hong Kong.
至於「雙非」的問題,根據已確立的法律原則,香港律師會認為,向人大常委會尋求對《基本法》第24(2)(1)條作出解釋,將會削弱終審法院的地位和權威,並損害香港的法治。
