    Legco - Parliamentary privilege?

    Can't find anything (but mind you, only spent 5 minutes searching). Does Legco enjoy parliamentary privilege?

    Thanks, that's it.

    So that means the new legco bods can support independence in the legco chamber and they are protected. Even though its against blah blah blah.

    Right?

    Discussion of independence isn't a crime anywhere in Hong Kong.

    “We firmly oppose any activity relating to Hong Kong independence in any form, inside or outside the Legislative Council, and firmly support the Hong Kong government to impose punishment in accordance with the law,” state news agency Xinhua cited a spokesperson of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office of the State Council — China’s cabinet — as saying.
