AbstractBy a 3-2 split decision, the Court of Final Appeal decided for the first time in its history to seek an interpretation of the Basic Law from the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress before rendering its final decision on Hong Kong's legal position on State immunity. This article contends that the problem does not lie in the majority's decision to refer, but in the way the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong intervened in the matter. The article argues that this intervention undermines Hong Kong's judicial independence and autonomy. This article further discusses the problematic and inconsistent treatment of certain issues by the majority.
