Macau (MNA) – The request for a deliberation is merely to make a political explanation and is not intended to encroach on the city’s judicial independence, said legislator Wong Hin Fai, as reported by local broadcaster TDM Chinese Radio News.

Being one of the two legislators who requested the deliberation, and a lawyer himself, Mr. Wong said the request for deliberation is a response to the appeal made by legislator Sulu Sou Ka Hou. 

He indicated that it is necessary to make a response according to procedures, and because of the involvement of the Legislative Assembly (AL) in the dispute.

Mr. Sou earlier released a statement suggesting the AL was attempting to encroach on the independence of the Courts.
