Hendrick Lui Chi Hang v Independent Police Complaints Council
HK Court of First Instance, 16-Apr-2020
The application for judicial review against the IPCC conducting a fact-finding study of public order events is dismissed. Interestingly, the case was heard using video-conferencing by agreement with the parties, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Re Mark Taylor Simpson QC
HK Court of First Instance, 31-Oct-2019
The liquidators of China Forestry Holdings Co Ltd apply to admit a UK silk to help them sue KPMG, the auditor, for over HK$1.3bn. Acting Chief Judge Jeremy Poon rejects the proposition that Solicitor-Advocates, who now have rights of audience, are an acceptable alternative to junior barristers to assist the QC. The Bar Council sent 2 Senior Counsel and 2 juniors to oppose the application, while the Secretary for Justice supported it. The quasi-trade union wins. Mr Simpson must be assisted by local barristers.
