Hong Kong purges last opposition voice from legislature

Cheng Chung-tai found to have failed to uphold city's constitution

"We have come to the determination that Cheng Chung-tai hasn't fulfilled the legal requirement of upholding the Basic Law and bearing allegiance to the Hong Kong SAR," Chief Secretary John Lee said on Thursday, referring to the constitution of the Chinese special administrative region.
