HKSAR Sai Kung District Council

HKSAR v Christine Fong Kwok Shan
HK Court of Final Appeal, 4-Oct-2017
Ms Fong's appeal against conviction for demonstrating in a LegCo public gallery is unanimously dismissed. However, the court rejects the Government's submission that a person does not have freedom of expression when on Government property. Rather, it is for the Government to show that a restriction on free speech is justified in the circumstances on the grounds of constitutional necessity.
