Court denies asylum-seekers' right to work
(02-18 11:43)

The Court of Final Appeal has rejected four refugees' claims for the right to work in Hong Kong. The refugees' lawyers earlier argued that it was "inhuman and degrading" for the government to prohibit them from working.
But the court said no constitutional right to work existed to support their case. --RTHK
