Transcript of remarks by CE at media session before ExCo meeting (with video)
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, at a media session before the Executive Council meeting this morning (April 2):
Reporter: Is it still suitable to table the fugitive law in LegCo now that it's facing legal challenges from a business figure?
Chief Executive: Well, as a matter of fact, the Hong Kong SAR Government is facing legal challenges on a daily basis, but that doesn't mean that we should put on hold important work which is for the public interest of Hong Kong. As I have said repeatedly, we have scheduled to introduce the amendment bill into Legislative Council at its sitting tomorrow and thereafter I'm sure the Legislative Council will form a Bills Committee to scrutinise the bill. That is our current work schedule. As far as individual actions taken relating to this particular legislative amendment exercise, since it is into the judicial process, I'm not going to offer any comments.
