Teresa Cheng inspects new recruits

Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng inspected the passing-out parade for 33 probationary inspectors and 116 recruit police constables at the Police College today.   While speaking at the ceremony, she encouraged the graduates to rise to challenges and strive ahead with perseverance, bravery and fortitude.   Ms Cheng said citizens have a rising expectation towards the quality of public services as society has seen drastic changes in recent years, and Police have been under unprecedented challenges and tests in their work.   Joining the force at this time has fully demonstrated the graduates’ determination, ability, commitment and willingness to serve the community as society’s future pillars, she added.   Ms Cheng also noted that rule of law and national security are the cornerstones of ensuring Hong Kong’s long-term security and sustainable development.   She explained that the Department of Justice and Police perform respective roles in upholding the rule of law and national security, as well as protecting public interest for the steady and enduring growth of “one country, two systems”.   Ms Cheng remarked that national security tops the country’s priority, adding that the aspiration of “one country, two systems” is to uphold national sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity.   She stressed that the Government will strive to fully implement the legal system and enforcement mechanisms to safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests.   She said she hoped that all graduates could embrace Police’s vision in ensuring that Hong Kong remains one of the safest and most stable societies in the world.

Legal officer changes proposed

The Government has proposed to amend the law to allow legal officers of the Department of Justice to be appointed as a senior counsel.   At a media session after attending a Legislative Council meeting today, Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng explained the rationale behind the Government's proposal.   She said: “Why is it that my colleagues in the Department of Justice - who by their qualifications are solicitors but are actually arguing very well and very efficiently with great eloquence and efficacy in the Court of Final Appeal - are not being recognised when they are actually even better than their counterparts? That has always been something that sometimes troubles me.   “And for that reason, I have always been thinking about how we are going to overcome that problem.   “Now, what really triggers my determination to take this further forward is when one of our Deputy Directors of Public Prosecutions, Vinci Lam, took silk on May 29.   “That really showed that the form
