Louisa Mak talks about the rule of law in Hong Kong

Recently the Hong Kong Seven Police case came to a verdict and immediately became a hot topic on the internet. Former Miss Hong Kong Louisa Mak (麥明詩) who is always concerned about Hong Kong's current situation, last night she wrote a long post on Facebook mentioning about the law. An online netizen later replied with a disappointment on what Louisa has said. Louisa wrote a one thousand word post supporting the rule of law. She said: "The law has the right to sentence someone to death and you may think the Kowloon Emperor is suitable to decide the law, but I still believe in the rule of law and defend the rule of law".

In her long post she explains the judicial system in Hong Kong, as well as the process of pursuing procedural justice. She also mentioned that humans are subjective and impulsive animals and cannot solve problems by force: "We want to be tall animals and not want to live in a bad environment. It is important to establish rules and laws to protect society". At the same time, people are not saints however, the mood is not is not an excuse to express the cause of the establishment of the penalty and again to remind the meaning of punishment. Louisa also said that we all need to comply with the law and the judge themselves follows the precedent.
