Verdicts that Hong Kong courts have recently handed down against seven local policemen and a former chief executive have triggered controversy in the region and on the mainland Andrew Triggs Jersey , with some claiming an anti-Beijing conspiracy is at work but others defending Hong Kong's tradition of judicial independence and objectivity.

Many observers, especially on the mainland, believe the sentences given to figures they identify as pro-central government were harsher than those given to pan-democracy activists that have gotten in trouble with the law due to judges' alleged political bias.

He Xin, a member of the 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, said on his Weibo that "China made a mistake in that it only took over Hong Kong's defense and diplomacy, but not its judicial power."

Some scholars have even suggested Beijing revise the Basic Law Cheap Oakland Athletics Hats , which has served as Hong Kong's constitution since July 1, 1997 when China resumed its sovereignty over Hong Kong, to ensure the central government has the final say in criminal cases.

However, some legal experts have voiced opposing opinions, saying that the verdicts were in accordance with the law and practice of judicial independence. And they don't think it is appropriate for the central government to take the power of final adjudication away from Hong Kong, as this would likely intensify already-high tensions between Hong Kongers and mainlanders.

Case controversy

On February 22 Cheap Athletics baseball Shirts , Justice Andrew Chan of Hong Kong's High Court announced that the region's former Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen would serve 20 months in prison for misconduct in office. While on February 17, British-born Judge David Dufton of the District Court sentenced seven Hong Kong police officers to two years in prison after they were found guilty of "assault occasioning actual bodily harm" for their beating of activist Ken Tsang on October 14, 2014 during the Occupy Central protests, which was captured on film.

The officers' prison terms were originally two years and six months, but were reduced by six months after the court took into account their "long and distinguished careers," The Hong Kong Free Press reported. They will also lose their jobs.

These sentences sparked discontent in some quarters Cheap Athletics Pullover Hoodies , with some claiming that the officers - who could have faced up to three years behind bars - were given unfairly harsh verdicts when compared with punishments handed out to pan-democracy protesters who were found to have broken the law.

Ken Tsang, who poured liquid that smelled like urine on police officers who were clearing protestors before receiving the beating, was sentenced to five weeks in prison after being found guilty of attacking police - which can carry up to a two year prison term - in May last year. Tsang's case, and those of several other activists found guilty of crimes related to disorderly protesting, with sentences ranging from community service to suspended jail terms, aroused ire in those who accuse the region's legal system of political bias.

Besides written appeals for leniency to the court and chief executive Custom Athletics Jerseys , 38,000 people gathered in Hong Kong Wednesday to show their support for the policemen.

Tiffany Chen Ming-Yin, vice chair of the Hong Kong-based China Star Entertainment Ltd, said on her Weibo account that "The sentence result was bitterly disappointing. If similar protest happens again, will policemen continue to go all out to maintain order?...If such a thing happened in the US, [Tsang] would be shot dead." The post has drawn 8 Cheap Athletics Jerseys ,500 reposts and 78,800 likes.

The nationality of Hong Kong's judges has become a hot issue. Among the 17 judges of the Court of Final Appeal (CFA) in the region, only two solely hold Hong Kong citizenship, while the others are nationals from other common law jurisdictions such as UK and Australia, according to guancha, a Chinese online news and comments aggregator. However Walt Weiss Athletics Jersey , the judges of the District and High courts are mostly local Hong Kongers.

"The verdicts were undoubtedly political. Foreign judges supporting pro-independence activists shows that the foreigners judging Chinese is the sequel of colonization," Sima Nan, a Maoist scholar, said on his Weibo.

Guo Songmin, an independent scholar, claimed the conviction is an act of revenge toward Beijing for an interpretation issued last year by China's top legislature Tony Phillips Athletics Jersey , the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, which led to the disqualification of two pro-independence legislators of the Hong Kong Legislative Council.

"They want to demonstrate who is really in charge of Hong Kong and encourage Beijing's opponents in the region to create chaos," Guo said in a video discussion organized by m4, a Beijing-based political commentary website which is dedicated to "helping young Chinese build healthy, constructive and progressive minds."


However, some experts have defended Hong Kong's judicial system from thes"
