Special tribute to the late Sir Oswald Cheung


The following is issued on behalf of the Honourable Chief Justice Mr Andrew Kwok-nang Li, who paid a special tribute to the late Sir Oswald Cheung in open court this afternoon (December 10) at the Court of Final Appeal:

"The sad news has reached us that Sir Oswald Cheung passed away this morning. And I would like to pay a brief tribute to him.

He was the doyen of the Bar and was one of the most distinguished Hong Kong citizens in the second half of the 20th century. At the Bar, he was the pre-eminent advocate of his generation and he always gave encouragement, help and support to young practitioners. In public life, he served with great distinction in many offices and positions. He was a man of great warmth and generosity. We shall all miss him."
