Junius Ho denies Sunday protest intimidates HKU over Benny TaiLocal | 15 Sep 2017 7:44 pm
Pro-Beijing legislator Junius Ho has denied that a public rally he is organizing on Sunday to demand the University of Hong Kong sack legal scholar Benny Tai is a way to intimidate university officials.
Ho said he expected about 2,000 people to gather at Tamar to demand action from the university.
He said that the protest rally is meant to provide a platform for people who want to voice their discontent at Tai's advocacy of civil disobedience.
Ho had already written to the university to protest against Tai, saying the faculty of law professor is spreading the idea of civil disobedience among students and encouraging them to challenge Hong Kong’s rule of law.
The university’s vice-chancellor, Peter Mathieson, has said the courts should be the ones to judge Tai.
Ho told RTHK's Maggie Ho that he is still waiting for a proper reply from Mathieson.
