  • China - New law to establish and improve the legal system and enforcement mechanism for the national security in Hong Kong - May 21, 2020


    "Decision (Draft) on Establishing and Improving the Legal System and Enforcement Mechanism for the Maintenance of National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region"

    May 21, 2020

      In the face of possible future violence, Deng Jingcheng said that in the short term, some Hong Kong citizens who sympathize with the rioters may be dissatisfied with the law, and street violence in Hong Kong may reappear, but I believe that the Hong Kong Police Force is fully capable of responding. In the long run, this law will help the Hong Kong police and other law enforcement agencies to more effectively maintain peace in Hong Kong and safeguard national security, so that Hong Kong will no longer be the "weakest link" in national security.

      Scores of police entered the Apple Daily building in what seems to be a raid on the pro-opposition newspaper, following the arrest of its founder Jimmy Lai under the national security law.

        Jimmy Lai: Hong Kong media tycoon held amid sweep of arrests

        6 hours ago

        The Hong Kong business tycoon Jimmy Lai has been arrested along with other pro-democracy and media figures, raising fears of a broad crackdown by China.

        Mr Lai's Apple Daily newspaper offices were raided on Monday over allegations of collusion with foreign forces.

        His case is the most high-profile arrest so far under a controversial security law imposed by China in June.
