Prospect withdraws from Hong Kong Legislation Society election citing threats to himself and relatives

A council member of the Regulation Modern society of Hong Kong has declared that he will withdraw from the solicitors group’s election this coming Tuesday, citing protection fears.

“For my basic safety, and the protection of my spouse and children, I am announcing my intention to withdraw my name as a prospect for re-election to the Council of the Regulation Modern society of Hong Kong,” Jonathan Ross claimed in a assertion.

Tuesday’s election for the qualified affiliation will see five new council users elected to swap some of its longest-standing users. The race is viewed as a watershed second as at the moment the “liberal camp” occupies 7 out of 20 seats on the council. If the camp wins all 5 seats, they will attain a the greater part in the human body that counts over 12,000 solicitors among its membership.
