Consult the public

I refer to the letter 'The right to criticise' (October 14).

In this letter, Helen Ma asks what the relevance is of Emily Lau Wai-hing's condemnation of Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa to her actions in Taiwan?

18 Oct 2003 - 12:00am

Some alternatives, please

If anyone is to criticise Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa, the least qualified is Emily Lau Wai-hing ('Please go', October 9).

Anti-Tung group is registered, but rally still in doubt

Legislator Emily Lau accuses the police of using delaying tactics and dirty tricks to hinder the planned demonstration

A political group that wants Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa to resign cleared a big hurdle yesterday when the police granted its application to register as a society. The process had been delayed for an unusually long period of eight weeks.

Independence remarks

I refer to the debate about Emily Lau Wai-hing's loyalty ('Dissent vs loyalty', September 25). Like all other readers, I cannot form any opinion on the comments made by Ms Lau in Taiwan on the question of Taiwan's independence because they were only briefly reported by the Hong Kong and Taiwan media.

Dissent vs loyalty

I refer to the letter 'Loyal politician' (September 20) responding to my 'Question of loyalty' (September 9).

I had used a marriage oath as an example to prove that Emily Lau Wai-hing's statement respecting the choice of either reunification or independence by Taiwan people was in violation of her loyalty oath.

In Brief

2 arrested in connection with diamond theft

Two Venezuelans, a man and a woman aged 24 and 25, were arrested yesterday morning at a guesthouse in Jordan Road, Yau Ma Tei, in connection with the theft of 200 diamonds, worth $7.8 million, from a booth at the Hong Kong Jewellery and Watch Fair at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai.Clifford Lo

Police inaction riles Emily Lau

Legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing has accused the police of not doing enough to investigate an attack on her office.

She said she had received a letter from the police suggesting she consider installing a camera to improve security.

Winning her point

I refer to the leader headlined 'Free speech applies equally, and to all' (September 5).

So the forces that cannot appropriately answer criticisms have resorted to extra-legal measures in the smearing of faeces on the door to the office of legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing.

Question of loyalty

What's wrong with Emily Lau Wai-hing's statement?

Recently there has been a lot of debate about Ms. Lau's participation in the seminar held in Taipei by the Taiwan Advocates, a pro-independence think-tank led by former president Lee Teng-hui.

Free speech applies equally, and to all

The right to express views freely is an essential part of what makes Hong Kong tick. From the discussions which take place daily on our radio talk shows to the debates in the Legislative Council, opinions are often stated in strong terms and exchanges can become heated. This serves to reflect the nature of our vibrant and diverse society.

Security chief vows to perfect Article 23 bill

He says the final version will win the public's blessing

The final version of the national security legislation under Article 23 of the Basic Law would be one that had the public's blessing, the new security chief pledged yesterday.

What's in a name?

I am perplexed by Emily Lau Wai-hing's apparent understanding of the key problem facing Hong Kong and her role as a founder of the Anti-Tung Solidarity coalition ('A new force', August 13) which flies in the face of such understanding.

15 Aug 2003 - 12:00am

Accept the Basic Law

I refer to the articles 'Plea to Tung' and 'Banned group waiting in vain to cross border' (July 28).
