Court urged to reject bid for JR over HKTV
(04-30 12:51)

The High Court has been urged to turn down an application for a judicial review of the government's decision not to grant Hong Kong Television Network a free to air TV license.
The applicant is being sought by League of Social Democrats member Freeman Lam and Cheung Chau resident Kwok Cheuk-kin
The government's lawyer argued that the two applicants don't have sufficient interest in the matter.
He said the court shouldn't waste time by granting them leave for a review, because a better applicant, Hong Kong-TV itself, has made a separate legal challenge. --RTHK
