Role of Liaison Office / Facial Recognition Technology 00:59:00 2018-09-21
On Backchat, the role of the Liaison Office. Former Legco President Tsang Yok-sing has proposed amending the Basic Law to define the status and responsibilities of Beijing's Liaison Office in Hong Kong, so the office can operate legitimately and justifiably. What exactly does the office do now, and as it steps up its actions, is it in danger of going too far? What about publishing, or co-coordinating legislators, or lobbying for a particular CE candidate? Does Article 22 of the Basic Law apply, and what does that mean when it talks about 'interference' by the CPG? Will the enlargement of the role of Liaison Office contravene the principle of One Country Two Systems? Leave a message here, or email us at, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, facial recognition technology installed at the airport. Safer, or sinister?
