Comment:

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.
