Tung Chee-hwa will be warned of the danger of the rule of law collapsing as the Government plans to take a controversial decision to seek reinterpretation of Basic Law provisions by the national legislature to tackle the abode crisis. And at a House Committee meeting, legislators agreed to move an emergency motion on Wednesday to press the Government to initiate a motion to consult the community if a decision were taken on Tuesday. Last-ditch appeals will be made by groups including The Frontier, the Democrats and the Bar Association in their meetings with the Chief Executive today Today's meetings follow a special Exco meeting yesterday, in which Secretary for Justice Elsie Leung Oi-sie and Secretary for Security Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee reported on their discussions with Beijing officials on the issue. Exco is expected to give a final approval on Tuesday. Mrs Ip dismissed suggestions that the legal community was opposed to the reinterpretation option. 'Views are divided among the legal sector. [There are] HKU professors, experts who agreed to this option [reinterpretation],' she said. Information Co-ordinator Stephen Lam Sui-lung said Mr Tung mainly wanted to listen to the views of legislators and the two legal bodies - the Bar Association and the Law Society. He declined to say whether Mr Tung would raise a specific option for comment, but added 'we are still considering several options'. The Frontier said in a statement: 'Rule of law is already on the brink of collapse. If the Government pursues the option [Standing Committee reinterpretation], it will damage the rule of law.' Democratic Party vice-chairman Yeung Sum said: 'We will try our best to convince Mr Tung of the damaging consequences and the merits of the option of amending the Basic Law.' He said results of a survey conducted by the University of Hong Kong's Social Science Research Centre found more public support for the amendment option than the reinterpretation option. In a rare open letter to Hong Kong people yesterday, the Bar Association warned that seeking a Standing Committee reinterpretation would open a big hole in the spirit and system of the rule of law which have been established over many years. It warned that it would then be possible for the Government to ask the Standing Committee to interpret on matters such as rights to demonstrate if it was not happy with the ruling of the Court of Final Appeal.
