The rule of law in Hong Kong has been constantly sabotaged and eroded by the Chinese Communist Party since it occupied the city in 1997. Nowadays, even ordinary Hongkongers have sensed the rule of law in the city has died. Netizens in LIHKG, a Reddit-like social media of protesters, marked September 17 the death time of the rule of the law in Hong Kong because a long list of cases of injustice appeared on that day. Netizens commented that Courts and the Department of Justice systematically legitimized the blatant wrongs and evils committed by the Hong Kong Police Force.
The judiciary in Hong Kong called white to black are not only jaw-dropping but also challenging the common sense of righteousness and justice. The top five on September 17 are as follows—
- It has been more than 25 days since 12 Hongkongers were illegally kidnapped by the CCP police in the high sea near Taiwan. The police, who have no right to arrest anyone in the high sea, detained the 12 in Guangdong province. The CCP police force did not allow any lawyer hired by their detainees’ families to access to their clients, including a 16-year-old middle school student. The 12 are not allowed to call their families and no one knows their real status.
Beijing has outrageously tramped the human rights of the 12. The authority meant to use dirty tricks to deter Hongkongers. The unlawful arrests and detainment have shocked the world, but not the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The apathetic government responds coldly with an excuse of respecting the jurisdiction of other regions. The excuse pleads for believing as the SAR government reprimands Taiwan jurisdiction for Hong Kong exiles at the same time.
Live or dead? How much the 12 have been tortured? No one knows! The CCP wracks Hong Kong and more will come to the world if no one stands up against it. Miles Guo has warned that taking down CCP is urgent, the world has no choice but to terminate it for good. Action now, everyone counts!

- Hong Kong opposition activist Tam Tak-chi has denied bail on Thursday ahead of trial after he was charged under the city’s colonial-era sedition law and remanded by a lower court. He is the first person to be charged with sedition since the CCP occupied the city. He faces seven counts of uttering seditious words, and six counts of public order offenses, in three separate cases stemming from last year’s protest movement.
The CCP uses the colonial-era law to prosecute an activist while it refuses to obey the Joint Declaration signed in 1984. Such absurdity is an other wakeup call to everyone in the world.

- On June 26 of last year, Cheung Gam-fuk, a plainclothes policeman was on a decoy mission to stir up violence, attack civilians, and arrest protesters during the demonstration—a dirty hand that the CCP frequently adopted in various occasions during the protest movement. Cheung was recognized that day by the demonstrators around him and hit a lady while he attempted to run away. Sam Hiu-leon tried to protect the lady and chased the plainclothes police assuming he was a criminal.
On the court yesterday, Cheung accused Shum of attacking police, claiming that Shum “hurt his canker sores in the mouth”. Although the magistrate mentioned that the canker sores were small wounds irrelevant to the alleged “assaulting on” the police officer, he still sentenced Shum guilty of rioting, common assault, and failing to surrender to custody.
- A 15-year-old has been sent to a detention center today after the Department of Justice won a review over a probation verdict that was handed down for throwing petrol bombs.
The boy was arrested after throwing three petrol bombs as a test in Yuen Long on January 8. In May, the boy was given 18-month probation. However, the Department of Justice lodged an appeal, saying the sentence was too lenient. The judge of the Court of Appeal, Derek Pang Wai Cheong, sentenced the boy to serve at the detention center. He questioned that the teenager cares about society, saying it is a little better than being boring and aimless.
- A 16-year-old student was seriously wounded after arrestment and attended court on Thursday in a wheelchair. He claimed to be lynched by the police in revenge.
However, Magistrate Ada Yim Shun Yee admitted that he did have a laceration on his head and that he had obvious serious injuries after the arrest, but she refused the boy’s claim that the injuries resulted from the police lynch, saying that no relevant information could be found on how the injuries were caused.
