Disagreement between the Final Court and the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress is foreseeable

Leung Mei-fen pointed out that it is "common" and normal to have different opinions in the legal profession. She described the legal provisions as not "monolithic" and believed that the interpretation of the law is in line with the Chinese Constitution and the constitutional order of Hong Kong: "It is said all the way. If there are 6 lawyers in the legal profession, there are 6 opinions. Regardless of whether the final court ruled that the government lost the case, or there is no mechanism to ensure that foreign lawyers will not disclose state secrets when defending cases involving the "National Security Law", it is quite normal to ask the National People's Congress for interpretation! Therefore, I I really think it is quite normal, in the legal field, the judgment of the first instance, the second instance, and the third instance may be different."

Calling for Respect for the People's Congress' Right to Interpret Laws: Take a Normal Mind

It is expected that if we are familiar with "common law" judgments and have seen so many differences between the Basic Law and the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and the Court of Final Appeal on certain provisions, these are things that everyone can expect to happen. The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress will discuss the differences again explain."

Liang Meifen emphasized that the society should respect the power of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to interpret laws: "If the government loses, we must respect the court's judgment. With respect, this issue should not be viewed with politics.”
