The third edition of this Handbook reproduces the text of these four Ordinances as at 2008, together with up-to-date amendments and repeals made to each section. It also reproduces the current text of all subsidiary legislation, appendixes, and forms in the Crimes Ordinance (Cap 200), the Dangerous Drugs Ordinance (Cap134) and the Juvenile Offenders Ordinance (Cap 226).
This Handbook also provides section-by-section annotations to each of the four Ordinances. The annotations, which have been adopted from the Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong series, are concise and simple to read. They include significant judicial decisions, rules of the court, and also notes ranging from definitions of words and phrases to discussion on practical aspects and contentious issues relating to particular sections and other authoritative materials.
In addition, the annotations are fully cross-referenced, with comprehensive tables of cases and legislation referred to.
This series has been citied with authority, in over a hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal and Court of Final Appeal. This Handbook will be an invaluable source of information for those engaged in the legal profession, academics, students and those interested in the workings of criminal law in Hong Kong.
