Replacement for Sir Ti Liang for one case

A replacement was found for Sir Ti Liang yesterday - but only for one case.

I'm no manager - Sir Ti Liang

Leader's loss 'no cause for sorrow'

No one within the Judiciary would feel sorry if Sir Ti Liang stepped down, a judge said yesterday.

'As many people can see, and Sir Ti Liang himself also agrees, administrative skill is not his forte. Many of my colleagues think his administrative ability is very weak,' he said.

I HESITATE to enter the lists against so prominent an advocate as Michael Darwyne, but as he appears to have missed the point of my December 20 column headlined, 'Passing judgment on double standards', on the subject of our Chief Justice, I have little choice but to mount my trusty steed again.

Loss of memory 'a weak excuse'

THE Chief Justice's explanation that he had forgotten what he said to Xinhua's Mr Zhang was unacceptable, the Democratic Party's human rights spokesman Albert Ho Chun-yan said.

'It is not enough to give a wishy-washy answer,' he said.

If the Chief Justice did not make his position clear, the public would be inclined to believe Mr Zhang.
