AbstractThe article sets out the current law relating to secondary party criminal liability in Hong Kong, beginning with joint enterprise and then considering accessorial liability in the absence of prior agreement. The object is to ensure that any adoption of recent changes of approach in England, specifi cally those in and arising from Rahman and Bryce, is a matter of deliberate and informed choice. The article concludes that taking the subjective mens rea requirements for secondary party liability seriously requires taking Hong Kong's current strong agreement/ intention/knowledge requirements with respect to target offences seriously and guarding against dilution of actual foresight of possible collateral offences requirements by excessive abstraction of foreseen and committed acts. In other bwords, Rahman, Bryce and their progeny should be rejected.
