The Legislative Council meeting resumed today (12th) to deal with matters not completed yesterday. In yesterday's meeting, no motion was condemned by Member Jun He Yaoyao's motion. "No action on the condemnation motion was proposed." The first thing to be dealt with in today's meeting is Mr. Rong Haien's motion condemning Zheng Songtai under Rule 49B (1A) of the Rules of Procedure. The motion refers to Zheng Songtai assisting the demonstrators when the demonstrators attacked the Legislative Council on July 1 this year.
People's Power Chen Zhiquan moved not to take any action on the condemnation bill.

[12:20] Chen Zhiquan proposed that "no action on the condemnation motion is required". At 12 noon, the vote was not passed without a separate vote, condemning Zheng Songtai's motion and submitting it to a special committee for investigation.
Rong Haien said that when the Legislative Council building was damaged on July 1, Zheng Songtai introduced the building layout and facilities on the Internet live broadcast to assist demonstrators in illegally entering and destroying the building, and did not respect the parliament.
Guo Jiaqi of the Citizen Party and Nuoxuan of the Parliamentary Front stated that related trials had not been completed and Zheng Songtai was still innocent and should not be sentenced before trial. As for the Leong Mei-fen of the Hong Kong Economic Association, the destruction of the Legislative Council building and a heavy blow to the rule of law have a more negative impact on Hong Kong than the "721" and "831" incidents. She also criticized Pan Ambassador for supporting Zheng Songtai on the grounds of innocence, but moved to condemn He Junyao.
