I just happened to be trolling the “newly added judgments” page of the Department of the Judiciary website for a different case and happened to stumble upon “W vs. Registrar of Marriages,” which I wrote about previously here , here, here and here (my was I fascinated by this case!).
The Court of Appeal granted W leave to bring her question to the Court of Final Appeal (a/k/a the “CFA”), Hong Kong’s highest court namely “on the ground that the questions involved in the appeal are matters of great general or public importance, or otherwise, ought to be submitted to the Court of Final Appeal for determination.”
In the first place, W brings a question on the construction of the word “woman” and “female” in the Marriage Ordinance, and whether it includes ” post-operative male-to-female transsexual.”
Then, if the answer to that is in the negative, whether or not that is constitutional.
Good questions. I wish you the best W!!!
