Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei's Remarks on FG Hemisphere Associates LLC's Lawsuit against the Democratic Republic of Congo in HK
2011/06/08

Q: The Court of Final Appeal of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) ruled today that it would seek a judicial interpretation from the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on the FG Hemisphere Associates LLC v. the Democratic Republic of Congo case, which is the first of its kind. What is your comment?

A: We have noted the ruling made by the Court of Final Appeal of the HKSAR on the FG Hemisphere Associates LLC v. the Democratic Republic of Congo case, which seeks interpretation from the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of four questions related to Article 13 and Article 19 of the Basic Law, in accordance with Paragraph 3, Article 158 of the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. We welcome the ruling and believe that by doing so, the Court of Final Appeal of the HKSAR is fulfilling its obligations stipulated in the Basic Law, which is of positive significance to the comprehensive implementation of "one country, two systems" as well as the complete enforcement of the Basic Law.
