'Long Hair' rejects criticism
(04-14 15:36)

Legislator and the chairman of the League of Social Democrats, Leung Kwok-hung, on Monday dismissed as "nonsense" an article in a mainland newspaper that criticised his decision to abort his trip to Shanghai.
He went there on Friday together with a group of lawmakers to dicuss political reform in Hong Kong with mainland officials.
But he returned to Hong Kong the same day after the authorities on the mainland refused to allow him to bring in material related to the crackdown on pro-democracy activists in Beijing on June 4th 1989.
The article in the Global Times -- one of the mainland's most influential newspapers -- described Leung's actions as a "show". But Leung said he had done nothing wrong. --RTHK
