Law Society to decide president's fate
(08-19 12:24)

The Law Society's Council will meet on Tuesday afternoon to decide the fate of its President, Ambrose Lam San-keung, after members passed a motion of no confidence against him by a wide margin last week.
Lam came under fire after he expressed support for the White Paper published recently by Beijing, which regarded judges in Hong Kong as "administrators".
Lam has said that he was "undecided" on whether he would step down.
Member, Kevin Yam Kin-fung, who initiated the no-confidence motion, called on the Council to respect members' views. --RTHK
