Justice Centre Hong Kong appeared on RTHK TV 31’s the Pulse to discuss civil society’s proposals for ensuring all voices are safely heard by the Legislative Council during the pandemic.
Once again, we call upon the Bills Committee on Immigration (Amendment) Bill 2020 to convene virtual public hearings to allow refugees, asylum seekers, immigration detainees and civil society engage in direct dialogue with legislators and government officials. Constructive and open dialogue will help foster public confidence in governance and improve the quality and inclusivity of policies.
Read the relevant joint statement from Hong Kong’s civil society and watch the episode below.
