Professor Simon Shen Xuhui, international relations scholar says he do not agree Hong Kong independence should be banned from discussion at campus.

Speaking from Shue Yan University, Shen emphasized the importance of Hong Kong independence discussion.

“I don’t agree there is no room for discussion on Hong Kong independence, although it is not an option,” said Shen.

He said it is impossible to determine the ‘zero’ feasibility of Hong Kong independence if there is lack of discussion, “there’s absence of logic behind the ban,” he said.

‘Democracy wall’ of PolyU was covered up by red paper by authorities, after banner supporting Hong Kong independence was put up earlier this month.

Shen said ‘Democracy wall’ is difficult to achieve discussion or interaction purpose on the issue, but he believes objective analysis of the pros and cons should be debated, particularly in official school platforms.

He said proper discussions should be held if it is valuable and contribution to the notion.

Besides, Shen also comment on the impact of Hong Kong’s international integrity after the work visa of FCC Vice President Victor Mallet was refused by government authorities.

He reckoned the refusal will not harm the commercial environment of Hong Kong.

“Business communities usually consider a city’s certainty consistency and stability rather than judging a single event,” he said.

He said he had once witnessed a law professor who joined National University of Singapore’s conference was deported, because he was ‘spy for foreign government’ and challenged Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s South China Sea policy, however “these events did not harm Singapore’s international commercial status, Singapore is still preferred.”

He said that realistic concerns are the core consideration of businesses community, which consistency affect their commercial decision, therefore the visa refusal will not change foreign businesses’ investment.
