Wilson Leung writes in New Law Journal on a recent Hong Kong judgment clarifying committal proceedings

Writing in New Law Journal, Wilson Leung discusses the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal’s recent decision in Chu Kong v Sun Min [2022] HKCFA 24, where Lord Neuberger held that a party is not required to seek consent from or even inform the Secretary for Justice (the equivalent of the Attorney-General) before bringing criminal committal proceedings. He highlights how this provides welcome clarity on the matter, and removes a potential anomaly between criminal contempt proceedings and civil contempt proceedings.

Wilson is a dual-qualified barrister practising in both England and Hong Kong. He has over 13 years of experience at the Hong Kong Bar, practising from Temple Chambers (“the leading chambers in respect of commercial litigation work”, Legal 500, 2022 edn); he then qualified at the English Bar in 2022 and joined Serle Court. He focuses on complex commercial and chancery litigation, with particular experience in company, insolvency, contract, trusts, probate, and banking disputes.
