HKSAR v Lew Mon Hung
HK Court of Appeal, 25-May-2018
Mr Lew is granted leave to appeal to the Court of Final Appeal on a point of "great and general public importance". The angle appears to be: does the Commissioner of the ICAC have discretion, or is he duty-bound to investigate alleged or suspected offences? Does the CE of HK have the ability to direct or override him? If neither is true, then the argument would be that Mr Lew, by writing to then CE C Y Leung, could not have had any impact on his case, and therefore was not attempting to pervert the course of justice. Lots of ifs. The CFA will now decide.
