CJ's Speech at the "Judiciary" special stamps issuing ceremony

The following is issued on behalf of the Judiciary:

     The following is the full text (translation) of the speech delivered by the Hon Chief Justice Mr Andrew Kwok-nang Li at the "Judiciary" special stamps issuing ceremony today (November 27):

Postmaster General Chan, distinguished guests,

     Good morning. I am most delighted to join the "Judiciary" special stamps issuing ceremony today.

     The Judiciary serves the community by impartially adjudicating disputes between citizens and between citizen and government. In total we have about 180 Judges. Half of them sit at the Magistrates' court and tribunal level, and this is the level at which the citizen is most likely to experience the courts in action. The other Judges sit at the District Court, the High Court and the Court of Final Appeal.

     The Hongkong Post today launches, for the first time, a special set of four "Judiciary" stamps. One of the stamps features our Judges, as depicted in their respective judicial attire, from the various levels of court. The other three stamps feature the Court of Final Appeal, the Statue of Justice and the Mace. Together they highlight the importance our Judges attach to the administration of justice and the maintenance of public confidence in the Judiciary.

     I thank the Hongkong Post for launching this set of stamps, and designer Kwan for the design. Thank you.
