The promulgation of the Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance ("HKBORO") denotes a change in British decolonisation policy from that which prevailed in the 1950s and 1960s - the protection of minorities through a Bill of Rights. The HKBORO is uniquely interesting. The decision to incorporate it into Hong Kong law was political, and aimed at restoring the confidence of the Hong Kong people following the suppression of the Tiananmen democratic movement in Beijing in 1989. In addition, Hong Kong was the only Crown colony to entrench the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights indirectly in a constitutional document -- in the case of Hong Kong, the Letters Patent, the constitution for Hong Kong before 1997. This incorporation and entrenchment was intended to ensure that the HKBORO continued in force under the Basic Law of the Hong Kong SAR, the "mini-constitution" after 1997. The author suggests that Hong Kong provides a successful model for the courts in other common law jurisdiction in their efforts to incorporate international human rights jurisprudence into decision-making in the criminal law field.

In Patrick Yu's much-admired first book, A Seventh Child and the Law, he told of his early life and formidable educational achievements. In Tales from No.9 Ice House Street, he takes up the story as he returns to Hong Kong to become the first Chinese Crown Counsel and thereafter tells of the years in which he established himself as a most successful advocate in private practice. His story is enriched with anecdotes of his legal life and reminiscences of the many people with whom he came into contact. In the second part of the book, he recounts in his lively and intriguing way a series of the court-cases in which he was involved as an important member of the Hong Kong Bar. The cases have surprising twists that the defence-counsel cum storyteller deploys to surprise the reader. There are also unusual topics such as the Case of the Young Man who Impersonated a Police Officer, or the Case of the Solicitor Convicted of an Offence not known to the Law. These stories read like classic detective stories, while also shedding light on life and the law in Hong Kong. Whether telling of his own life, recalling people with whom he came into contact, or telling the legal stories of the second part of this book, Patrick Yu again shows himself to be an able raconteur and one whose life has provided him with many fascinating stories to tell.
