After Hong Kong High Court ruled that two newly-elected localist lawmakers should lose their seats over the way they took their oaths last month, Sixtus Baggio Leung Chung-hang said the feeling was calmer than expectation.


Speaking at the general assembly in Shue Yan University, Leung said “I am dissatisfied with the judgment.”


Leung said, “losing the seat is not the most important but the judgement of the court is more important.”


The judgement would affect the system of Hong Kong could be maintaining or not in the future, he added.


Leung said the relationship between Beijing and him was like the relationship between a lion and a cow in the forest.


In forest, a lion pursues a cow as normal, just like Beijing pursues him or Youngspiration, Leung made this analogy.


He added if the stand of himself or Youngspiration have not change, Beijing would follow up their actions and “settle” them, even though remaining the seats on Legislative Council.


Leung said it was not regretful by doing that in the October 12 swearing-in ceremony.

Planning to appeal, Leung will discuss with his lawyer to see what to do in the next step.


Comment

Appreciate your effort, you should include background to the piece.


Pro-independence politician Baggio Leung Chun-hang would file an appeal against the High Court ruling which disqualify him and his party colleague Yau Wai-ching from taking their seats in the legislature. The politician reiterated that the court’s judgment on the relevant laws is more important than whether he could keep his seat. Leung, convenor of political party Youngaspiration, has been the centre of a political storm that lead to Beijing’s most violent intervention in Hong Kong’s domestic affairs. Lawyers and legal scholars believe the intervention has far-reaching implications to the city’s future. The government filed a judicial review last month in an attempt to block the pair from retaking their oaths in the legislature, arguing that they had refused to take them and had already vacated their seats according to the Oaths and Declarations Ordinance. Leung and Yau were elected to the legislature with a pro-independence mandate. In the oath-taking ceremony, the pair used languages which some regarded as derogatory to the People’s Republic of China and the Chinese people. Their action also lead to the National People’s Congress in Beijing side-stepped Hong Kong by issuing a new interpretation on article 104 of the Basic Law. Lawyers and the pro-democracy camp strongly opposed Beijing’s move and regarded the move as a blatant violation of Hong Kong’s autonomy. The High Court handed down its judgement on the judicial review on Tuesday afternoon. Leung was speaking in Shue Yan University’s general assembly as the court was handing down the judgement. Leung denied accusation that the pair was Beijing’s Trojian Horse that allowed it to intervene in Hong Kong’s domestic affairs. However, he repeatedly evaded questions on the sources of the political party’s funding. Regarding the legal battle, Leung said they would consider turning to crowdfunding to fund the appeal.
