陸啟康法官狠批仇警論人士

準律師朱承曄在網上發表「黑警死全家」等仇警言論,而遭人投訴行為不當並冀律政司拒絕其律師動議申請,此律師動議案件押後至今天在高等法院處理。律師指有關仇警言論為其女友借用其Facebook戶口發表,女友亦撰信致歉,獲陸啟康法官信納而獲批其準律師執業認許,但指出事件演變成涉及公眾利益並引起傳媒關注,相信朱承曄會得到教訓,明白自己衝動地行使言論自由時亦需付出代價。有關法官的陳詞將上載至司法機構網站。

有律師行8月20日致函律政司,告發該準律師在fb發出「黑警死全家」言論。原本動議於8月24日進行,但因有投訴延至今天。據悉,律政司收到相關解釋後,亦不反對準律師的動議,他今天正式成為執業律師。

有關陳詞節錄內容:

也許這個申請可以作為一個莊嚴的提醒,一個律師,作為法院官員,專業人員和司法行政中的關鍵人物,要達到專業水平。

沒有人會質疑法治是香港的核心價值觀之一。多年來,我們感到自豪的是,我們擁有一個能夠保護公眾安全和個人權利的良好法律體系。但是,一定不要忘記,一個好的法律制度取決於許多人的貢獻。只有當這些人以專業的方式履行職責並被視為能夠履行職責時,香港才能享有盛譽的法律制度。

參與司法工作的人員當然包括法官,律師,檢察機關,法律援助部,警察和其他紀律部隊。由於這些人履行的職責各不相同,其中有些是整個社會應負的公共職責,因此自然會在他們之間產生分歧甚至衝突。但是即使如此,這些專業人員之間仍然始終相互尊重。這種相互尊重的前提是,我們認識到參與司法工作的不同人士應發揮不同的作用,並履行不同的職責。如果在對一個專業人員可能會做的事實進行充分知情和客觀的分析之後,如果一個人不同意從事司法工作的其他人的工作和立場,則應該提出異議或投訴並提出來以專業和理性的方式提出自己的論點。

“Perhaps this application may serve as a solemn reminder that a solicitor, being an officer of the court, a professional and a key player in the administration of justice, has a professional standard to meet.

No one would dispute that rule of law is one of the core values of Hong Kong. For many years, we take pride in the fact that we have a good legal system which is able to protect the safety of the public and the rights of individuals. However, one must not forget that a good legal system depends on the contributions of many people. It is only when these people discharge, and seen to be able to discharge, their duties in a professional manner, that Hong Kong can enjoy a reputable legal system.

The people involved in the administration of justice include, of course, the judges, the lawyers, the prosecution authority, the Legal Aid Department, the police and other disciplinary forces. As these people all have different duties to discharge, some of them public duties owed to the community at large, it is only natural that disagreements and even conflicts may arise between them. But even so, there is always mutual respect between these professionals. Such mutual respect is very much premised on the fact that we recognize the different people involved in the administration of justice have different roles to play and different duties to discharge. If, after well-informed and objective analysis of the facts which one would expect a professional to do, one disagrees with the work of and the stance taken by others involved in the administration of justice, one should lodge an objection or complaint and put forward his or her arguments in a professional and rational manner.”

“任何會尊重文明社會的核心價值的人,都不會作出此類聲明。”

“In fact, it should not have been published by anyone who values mutual respect as a core value of every civilized society.”

“該消息涉及非常令人討厭和煽動仇恨的言論。該聲明遠遠超出了對警察工作的理性批評。該聲明不僅威脅警察,而且威脅與工作無關的無辜家庭成員,甚至威脅或至少是詛咒。”

“The message involves a very distasteful and hatred-inciting statement. The statement went well beyond a rational criticism of the work of the police. The statement contained a threat, or at the very least a curse, targeting not just the police officers, but their innocent family members who have nothing to do with their work.”
