Law and order is always the core value of Hong Kong


A news commentator talked about the issue of mainland pregnant women giving birth to babies in Hong Kong. He argued that the Court of Final Appeal had given a wrong judgment about a case of a mainland pregnant woman, which led to the issue nowadays. Geordie Toh, a legal adviser of a network company, does not agree with the news commentator, “The Law itself is a standard, we should respect the decisions made by the court.” He said when attending a seminar held by the Hong Kong Shue Yan University this afternoon.


Toh added that this is about the core value of Hong Kong, everything may gradually disappear or replaced by something, except Law and Order. It is the thing we should uphold. He hopes that the conferee of the seminar could assert this value as well when reporting news in the future.


Toh gave another example to show that it would be unwise for the journalists to ignore or underestimate the law when working on a story. He said that the News International announced the closure of the News of the World on 7 July 2011 because of the issue of scandal. The newspaper was alleged to have hacked into the phones of families of British service personnel killed. Toh restated that all people are treated equally before the law; even the defendant is Rupert Murdoch or a 168 years old newspaper.


With regard to the recent news stories about the candidates of the Chief Executive election, Toh pointed out that the stories are full of creativity, however, lack of respect, "Someone used pig and wolf as a metaphor of Henry Tang and CY Leung, it's so disrespectful to do that."
