Law and privacy

This afternoon, Mr. Mo Sik Keung, Gilbert and Miss Woo Lai Wan, the chairlady of the Hong Kong Journalists Association, gave Shue Yan students a meaning speech about law and privacy. Mr Mo Sik Keung firstly introduced four concepts, so as to clarify some misunderstandings: The Common Law, which is from England; The Statute Law, which law is set up by legislative department; Civil Affairs, which protects rights and Criminal, which violate the law. After defining the terms, Mr Mo continued to say that the struggle between freedom of speech and privacy. Freedom of press is protected by law and this is our human right. However, it is restricted. We should respect people’s right and reputation. Therefore, libel is a crime and erotic publication should under supervision. Privacy should not be unreasonably invaded. But it is not absolutely right; we have to achieve a balance. Mr Mo gave students a good example about the struggle between privacy and reporting: recently miss A’s real identity is protected by count. Media can report the issue, but cannot show the real name of Miss A. The other speaker was Miss Woo Lai Wan, she said,” journalists are also citizen, they should not violate law. However, journalists have to monitor the society. What if they face barrier? Is the barrier reasonable?” Miss Woo showed an example about the impact of pictures. In the anti-chen campaign, it is better for journalists to take a picture, rather than describe the crowd. But the audiences do not need some bloody pictures. There are always conflicts between freedom of press and privacy. We have to think twice because every step we walk brings a deep impact.
