One pro-democracy legislator will seek to reverse verdict of Guangdong officials Pro-democracy legislators are divided on whether to raise the issue of reversing Beijing's verdict on the 1989 Tiananmen crackdown when they meet Guangdong officials during a tour of the Pearl River Delta at the end of the month. Democratic Party chairman Lee Wing-tat said yesterday the trip was aimed at studying the province's economic development. 'We are invited to join the tour and should respect the hosts,' he said. 'We have no intention of raising the June 4 issue during the trip. I think our stance on the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989 is very clear.' However, the party did plan to raise the issues of political reform in Hong Kong, economic co-operation and the safety of the mainland's freshwater fish. Fellow pro-democracy lawmaker Lee Cheuk-yan - a member of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China, which Beijing has branded subversive - said he would request that Guangdong party secretary Zhang Dejiang and Governor Huang Huahua reverse their verdict on the Tiananmen crackdown. 'It's conducive to boosting the confidence of Hong Kong people in the country's development,' Mr Lee said. Radical legislator 'Long Hair' Leung Kwok-hung said he had provided Mr Zhang with a position paper on reversing the June 4 verdict. All 60 lawmakers, including six members of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China's standing committee, were on Tuesday invited to join the two-day study trip to Guangdong organised by Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen. The tour - which covers Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan and Zhongshan - is scheduled to begin on September 25. The Frontier convenor Emily Lau Wai-hing said she planned to raise political reforms and air quality in the delta with Guangdong leaders. Chim Pui-chung, financial services lawmaker, said he would not join the tour because he did not want to be part of a 'political show'. Ma Lik, chairman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, said it was a breakthrough for the central government to allow core members of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China to return to the mainland. Cheung Man-kwong, the Democrat representing the education sector, said his fellow lawmakers had not been approached by Hong Kong and mainland officials about getting back their home-return permits. Democratic Party legislators have been barred from the mainland since 1989.
