Registrar of Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants v Chan Yui Hang [2022] 2 HKLRD 1101

 “It is noteworthy that the Court of Appeal took the view that the accounting issues and related factual disputes called for consideration by a specialist tribunal such as the Disciplinary Committee of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants. In this connection, see what was said about specialist tribunals in Hong Kong Electric Co Ltd v Commissioner of Rating and Valuation (No 2) (2011) 14 HKCFAR 579 at para.5.”

HKSAR v Chu Kar Keet (朱嘉傑) [2022] 2 HKLRD 1178

 “This case is a reminder of how important it is: (i) that prosecuting counsel does not urge against a defendant anything for which there is a possible answer or explanation in something which has been redacted from the evidence; and (ii) that the trial judge remedy any unfairness resulting from what prosecuting so urges.”
