Legco debates radio host's dismissal
(03-20 11:57)

Lawmakers have been debating whether to invoke the Legislative Council's Powers and Privilages Ordinance to look into Commercial Radio's sacking of its former outspoken radio host, Lee Wai-ling, in February.
Civic Party lawmaker Claudia Mo Man-ching, who raised the motion, stressed the need to investigate whether the government played a role and tried to limit freedom of speech.
However, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Greg So Kam-leung, dismissed these suggestions, calling them unfounded and lacking sense. --RTHK
