【鲍朴:香港不再是自由出版的社会】受铜锣湾书店事件影响,香港出版人鲍朴在今年书展出版新书《秦城国史》,被合作多年的香港印刷厂拒絶印刷,他指实属自我审查,发行方面亦有困难,他认为香港不再是自由出版之地。(海蓝 报道)

新世纪出版社创办人鲍朴周三(20日)向本台表示,香港印刷厂跟他们合作了10年,今年拒絶印刷这本新书,以前有关中共前总书记赵紫阳的书籍都交由他们印刷,新书《秦城国史》不太敏感,他们拒絶印,可能认为他的出版社危险。他坦言想问问香港人,是否愿意由印刷厂决定大家可以看什么书籍,这是香港社会非常大的问题,这个和中共打压有关,但也与香港商人的选择有关。

他又指,最后另外找到小规模的印刷商,还是把书印出来,可能是行业之间的决定,自己怕受到威胁,完全是自我审查。香港的文化现像被打掉,问题出在商业环境,它宁可离危险远一点,这是自己的选择,不要怪中共。

鲍朴说:一个印刷厂你怕什么,问题是,他认为这所有东西都是危险的,像铜锣湾书店他们只是卖书的人,而且受到人身威胁,所以香港社会不再是自由出版的社会。

发行方面也有问题,鲍朴指出,香港现时大部分书店属于中资,三联、商务及联合出版集团,该些书店不接受独立出版的政治书籍,独立出版社在香港已经没有生存空间,他预测明年书展没有这类书籍。他又指,印刷厂和书店都不跟他合作,他处于产业链中间,上面拒印、下面拒卖书,这是大问题。

《秦城国史》是第一本关于秦城监狱整个历史的书籍,从外部观察家的角度,采访逾百名秦城前犯包括李锐、鲍彤等,内容由「高晓案件」、「反右」、「文革」、「六四」到「反腐」。鲍朴指,作者袁凌为大陆媒体人,出这本书受到压力,所以比较低调。

鲍朴的父亲鲍彤为中共前总书记赵紫秘书,目前在北京仍受到限制,被问到出版敏感书籍会否影响家人。他表示,坚持独立出版的原则,不会考虑其他的后果,亦认为不会影响家人。

为期一星期的香港书展周三(20日)开幕,其中次文化堂社长彭志铭指,今年气氛较差,去年贸易发展局与大陆机构合作,安排大陆读者来书展,今年好像没有。今早,一名广州巿民到其摊档,他坦言不敢买时政书籍,以免过关找到。今次书展也不太看见有政治敏感书籍,他指现时香港言论及出版自由受到严重影响。

彭志铭说:一直都有,不过现在更加紧张,严重打压、严重影响,简单来说,这个对香港书业有很大打击。

但主办书展的香港贸局助理总裁周启良周二(19日) 在记者会上表示﹐香港是自由开放城市﹐任何政治议题的书籍﹐都可以在书展展出。

其實有無中國籍, 對香港永久居民係無影響,

前設是:

a) 你97 前已有BNO, 過期九世都可以續返
b) 你完全唔需要用通行證去中國
** 有無高手可解答: 無通行證但持BNO是否可做China visa入境?

c) 你唔會永久離開香港

Speech by Edward Chan, SC (陳景生). I just copied the section re 陳文敏。


Professor Johannes Chan

Johannes studied law in the HKU.  He showed his interest in public law in his very early student days.  His dissertation in law school, which turned out to be his first publication was a critique on the then Public Order Ordinance on unlawful assembly and public demonstrations, a topic which became a recurrent theme in the following 20 years of his career.

After his degree in the HKU, Johannes continued with his pursuit of the study of human right law.  He went to the LSE to study human rights with Professor Rosalyn Higgins QC (who is now a judge of the International Court of Justice).

He joined the University of Hong Kong in 1985 as a lecturer, and was a professor of law in 1998.  He was made the head of the department of law in 1999 and was elected Dean of the Faculty of Law in July 2002.  Thus he has taught many generations of lawyers in Hong Kong since 1985.  Amongst his distinguished students is of course, Rimsky Yuen who is called to the Inner with him today.

Johannes gave a lot of support to the Bar.  He is probably one of the longest serving members on the Bar Council.  He has served in the Bar Council under no less than 7 chairman:  Denis Chang, Robert Tang, Anthony Rogers, Jacqueline Leong, Gladys Li, Audry Eu and Ronny Tong.  

He was once the chairman of the Bar Standing committee on Constitutional affairs and Human rights.  He represented the Bar in Geneva and New York on the hearing of periodic reports submitted by the Hong Kong Government under the ICCPR (International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights) and also ICESR (International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights).

Johannes was called to the Hong Kong Bar in 1982.  He also had a practice exclusively on public law and human rights matters.

Apart from teaching and practicing, Johannes had also worked at the secretariat of the European Commission of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France in 1989, and was the assistant editor to the European Human Rights Reports for 1990-91.

He has acted as a trial observer for international organizations in various countries to observe and report on trials involving human rights issues.  

In 1993, he was appointed to the Committee of experts by the International Committee of Red Cross, Geneva, to draft and settle an authentic version of the ICRC Guides to the Geneva Convention and Protocol on the law of War acceptable to both PRC and Taiwan.

He also assisted in various international human rights organization (such as Amnesty International, Lawyers Committee, the International Committee of Red Cross) in preparing their reports on Hong Kong to various United Nation's bodies.

In Hong Kong, apart from serving in the Bar Council, Johannes had also served in various government, public or professional bodies, such as the consumer council, the broadcasting authority, the press council, the administrative appeal board, the municipal services appeal board, law reform subcommittee on privacy, central policy unit etc.

Professor Chan has published widely in both local and international journals.  Books published by him alone or in conjunction with others include: On the right to Justice, Hong Kong's constitutional debate; Conflict over Interpretation; General Principles of Hong Kong Law; Media Law and Practice; The Hong Kong Bill of Rights- Two years before 1997; The Hong Kong Bill of Rights: A Comparative Approach; Public Law and Human Rights: A Hong Kong Sourcebook; Human Rights in Hong Kong.  

He is also a co-editors of the Hong Kong Public Law Reports and Hong Kong Cases, and Hong Kong Law Report and Digest. 

I must not forget to mention that he is a member of the Article 23 concerned group and is one of the 7 distinguished authors of the publication of that group giving the public a fair and balanced insight on the government proposed legislation on Article 23 of the Basic Law.  

Professor Chan is one of the few who combines both academic scholarship and active practice. He truly has provided a distinguished service to the law of Hong Kong. He is the first person in Hong Kong to receive such honour of being an Honorary Senior Council.  

Professor, you truly deserve this Honour and the Bar is proud of you.

Edward Chan, SC
Chairman
