Offers a clear account of the general principles of criminal law in Hong Kong and will be useful to students, practitioners, and all who are responsible for or interested in the administration and practice f the criminal justice system in Hong Kong. This focuses on the general structure and principles of criminal liability, emphasising local legislation and case law as Hong Kong criminal law increasingly diverges from its English origins. Where necessary, it also includes discussion of two certain areas of Hong Kong's criminal law may develop. In addition, the book outlines a range of offences, including those commonly dealt with in undergraduate courses. Part One examines the foundations of Hong Kong's criminal law. The general principles of criminal liability are then covered in Parts Two to Four, including the elements of liability, general defences, and participation and inchoate liability. In Parts Five and Six, fatal and non-fatal offences against the person, sexual offences, and offences against the Theft Ordinance are discussed.
