HK's Court of Public Opinion
Updated: May 21, 2021
The Court that really matters in Hong Kong (HK) is the Court of Public Opinion : Why else would the common law require a jury to pass judgement!
It is the HK pro-democracy protesters who uphold UN treaties and obligations including ICCPR, Joint Declaration and its rule OF law.
CCP and its HK government are in BREACH of UN obligations including ICCPR, Joint Declaration and the rule OF law : Today communist HK only has CCP's arbitrary rule BY law as exemplified by its 1 July 2020 'national security law'.
The true authority is HK people - NOT HK government : The people of China and HK know they are the authority and it is only time before they express and receive their full human rights.
We the people of Hong Kong (HK) note that according to the Joint Declaration and UN obligations including ICCPR article 25 which is locally legislated as the 'HK Bill of Rights Ordinace' cap 383 (HKBORO) article 21 'Right to participate in public life':
"Every permanent resident shall have the right and the opportunity, without any of the distinctions mentioned in article 1(1) and without unreasonable restrictions-
(a) to take part in the conduct of public affairs, directly or through freely chosen representatives;
(b) to vote and to be elected at genuine periodic elections which shall be by universal and equal suffrage and shall be held by secret ballot, guaranteeing the free expression of the will of the electors;
(c) to have access, on general terms of equality, to public service in Hong Kong."
TWO recent examples of HK's Court of Public Opinion (HKCPO) cases in which CCP's and HK government's positions are rejected by HKCPO includes:
CASE 1 : Is the integrity and capability of Carrie Lam (CLam) appropriate to hold the office of HK Chief Executive, and adequate to be responsible and accountable for childrens' education and development?

CASE 2 : Is the HK Police Force performing its roles and responsibilities impartially and lawfully?
'MassageGate' illegal brothel cop / triad Frederic Choi:
What is clear is that illegal brothel cop / triad Frederic Choi by being inside an illegal brothel has compromised himself with organized crime triad members : i.e. he is in a position that he could be blackmailed, or he is himself a triad member. It has nothing to do with anything other than his integrity and ability to lawfully perform as a cop! This is the true face of CCP's rule BY law.
Police are authorized by their profession to use special powers to enforce the law and must therefore be held accountable to a higher level of integrity and responsibility. However, HK's police, according to UN special rappoteurs, are not!
CCP please answer the following UN letters sent to you:

The illegal freezing of the assets of Jimmy Lai :
In violation of the ICCPR right to private property without the Courts all it takes in communist HK is a letter from any police person (e.g. brothel creeper cop / triad Frederic Choi) for a bank to freeze anyone's assets including bank accounts, shares, etc. This is what happened to pro-democrats ex-Lawmaker Ted Hui and recently Jimmy Lai of Apple Daily.
It appears that CCP wants Jimmy Lai convicted so that it can strip him of his private property and sell off his Next Digital shares to a mainland investor who will takeover Next Digital and turn it into another pro-CCP media outlet!
