Henry C K Liu: Hong Kong appeal court in the dock

From Asia Times:

To strengthen the rule of law in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and to prevent the use of the law for veiled geopolitical purposes, there is a need to limit the jurisdiction of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal (CFA) to legal issues; and to create a new Basic Law Constitutional Council in Beijing with exclusive jurisdiction over constitutional issues. The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPCSC) should amend the Basic Law, Hong Kong’s mini-constitution, to eliminate once and for all any ambiguity about Chinese sovereignty over Hong Kong.
