Example text

Important principles for judicial review of constitutional instruments began to be developed through these cases. In the very first constitutional law case11 in July 1997, Court of Appeal assumed the jurisdiction to review legislation without any objection from the government. The solicitor-general readily conceded this jurisdiction (as mentioned by Nazareth VP in Ma at 351D). Article 158(2) and (3) are often cited as authority for the courts’ jurisdiction. In Ma Nazareth VP, however, doubted whether this jurisdiction could be based on Article 158 as stated by the solicitor-general, which the judge said appeared to be a “bare power” to interpret, and preferred to rest jurisdiction on Article 19(2), which gives the courts “jurisdiction over all cases” in the region.

A further area, so far unexplored because the powers are not used, is the examination by the NPCSC of legislation passed by the HKSAR legislature in fields which are the responsibility of the Central Authorities or cover the relationship between them and the HKSAR to determine its validity (Article 17). Article 160 enabled the NPCSC to exclude previous laws from application after 1 July 1997. There is interface also in the area of mutual legal assistance, which covers matters like the mutual recognition of judicial and arbitral awards, the securing of evidence The Intersection of Chinese Law and the Common Law 21 in the other jurisdiction, servicing of documents, and the transfer of fugitive offenders (Article 95) – all of which attesting strongly to the separation of the two legal systems.

Subsequent litigation suggests that this may not be the proper way to interpret the reaction of the Central Authorities. In HKSAR v Ng Kung Siu,27 the Court of Appeal declared invalid section 7 of the National Flag and National Emblem Ordinance 1997 which criminalised the conduct of defacing the national flag, for incompatibility with the freedom of expression guaranteed by the ICCPR under Article 39 of the Basic Law. Although this too was a local ordinance implementing national legislation, it differed from the immigration ordinance in that the national legislation it implemented is extended to Hong Kong through the mechanism of Article 18 and appears in Annex III.
