|Abstract: ||This paper will examine the conclusion given by the Hong Kong Law Reform Commission in
2004, that Hong Kong should set up a statutory Press Council with legal power, to resolve the
issue of privacy invasion. However, the Government has not responded to this proposal.
Precedents, the current regulating systems and Press Councils from other parts of the world
would be examined through a comparative approach, with specific reference to Hong Kong
law, to explore whether there is a necessity to do so. If so, since there is a dearth of discussion
on this subject matter, suggestions on the composition and the powers given would be
provided as to the future development of the Press Council in Hong Kong.|
