Abstract

\香港基本法规定,香港特别行政区享有“独立的司法权和终审权”(第2条、第19条第1款);香港特区法院除继续保持香港原有法律制度和原则对法院审判权所作的限制外,对香港特区所有的案件均有审判权(第19条第2款)。香港回归后的司法实践证实上述规定得以贯彻实行,但同时暴露了“一国两制”之下两制之间的激烈摩擦和冲突,这也突出表现在特区法院的司法审查权/管辖权方面。本文主要探讨基本法下特区法院司法审查权的确立及其依据,揭示司法审查权的性质和内涵,最后透过成文法和判例法为司法审查权划定权力边界。本文特别评述了学术界目前的主流观点。

Article 19(2) of the Basic Law of the HKSAR states that “The courts of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region shall have jurisdiction over all cases in the Region, except that the restrictions on their jurisdiction imposed by the legal system and principles previously in force in Hong Kong shall be maintained.” However the jurisdiction of the courts of the HKSAR has been questioned in theory as well as in practice. This article aims at, first, examining the recognition and grounds of the jurisdiction of the courts under the Basic Law and case law, and then discovering the nature and substance of the jurisdiction. It further defines the boundary of judicial power and the limits of judicial review based on the current law including case law. Along with the above discussion, it offers its comments on the mainstream viewpoints on the subject.
