'Only Beijing can rule on HK's Basic Law'Basic Law A158
RTHK, 19-Nov-2019
Simply untrue. BL A158 states "The [NPCSC] shall authorize the courts of the [HKSAR] to interpret on their own, in adjudicating cases, the provisions of this Law which are within the limits of the autonomy of the Region". Sure, the NPCSC can override with its own "interpretation", but doing so would again undermine HK's purported autonomy under "Two Systems".
