Why does China promote Hong Kong security law?


Hong Kong Security Law is said to help China to prevent, hindered the rally scale as last year in the special district.

The South China Morning Post yesterday led news sources from Beijing to know the National Congress of People’s delegates, the China National Assembly, will pass the security law to Hong Kong during the ongoing annual meeting, which prohibits the entire operation of separatist, overthrowing, foreign intervention in matters of Hong Kong and terrorist activities in this city.

From this few years, Chinese officials repeatedly expressed frustration and anger in front of what they considered to be weak security in the Hong Kong Special District. The anti-government protests broke out last year increasing the frustration, prompting the Chinese leadership to be determined to stop what they describe as the threat of terrorism, secession, overthrow and entice.

Lạc Huizhou, the highest level officials of China in Hong Kong, the 4th month warning the district should urgently give security law. “If the ants are eroding the law not wiped out, the national security Dam will be destroyed and the welfare of all the people of Hong Kong will be affected,” he said.

Beijing insists they have the right to do this, but it’s practically more complicated than once.

Hong Kong was awarded to China by the British in 1997 and has the right to write themselves as well as adjust their own laws under the formula “one country, two modes”. Article 23 The Basic Law of Hong Kong states the District “shall self-act law” to solve security issues.

But the Basic Law also left the central government to add legislation to control the special district with certain conditions. This power is in the hands of the National Congress of China, the legislature who is meeting in Beijing.

According to commentator Joyu Wang from Wall Street Journal, China has appointed a new group of officials responsible for Hong Kong. They were tasked with combating other Democrat supporters like protests against the proponents of the regime last year.

The demonstration of the rally, when the Covid-19 attacked the district, but the peace with the authorities remained elevated and the experts anticipating the Hong Kong opposition would soon be able to rejoin the rally, possibly at the beginning of this month.

In a message sent to foreign ambassadors, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Hong Kong was unable to pass security laws which would create national security vulnerabilities. From this vulnerability, opposition forces could “deal with forces from outside” against the central China government.

In addition, CElection of the Hong Kong Legislative Assembly This autumn also brings the supporters of democracy the opportunity to win more seats in the administration, enough to discourage efforts through the security Bill of the Special district. This is one of the reasons why the Chinese central government put the issue of Hong Kong Security Law in the present moment.

Critics said that the Chinese through the Hong Kong Security Law would be the most serious act in the sequence of actions to erode the autonomous levels of the special district in recent years.

“I feel a discomment,” said Dennis Kwok, the legislative supporter of democracy in Hong Kong. “This is basically the end of the system ‘ a country, two modes ‘”.

The new security law was disturbing to many Hong Kong people because it was expected to shape the comments and actions that the authorities considered “instigated rebellion”, thereby Bringing the law of Hong Kong closer to mainland China law.

Beijing used similar laws to curb activists and promote political goals. A book seller in Hong Kong that sold banned books in mainland China was subjected to a 10-year sentence with high-forced espionage. China last year also captured two Canadian citizens, a person who is a researcher and a former diplomatic house, with accusations of espionage. This is said to retaliate for the Canadian arrest of the CEO Huawei Telecom Corporation.

Millions of people last year were proteolytic in Hong Kong due to the concern that the law of conductivity, which has now been cancelled, will cause them to be supervised by the mainland Chinese legal system.

According to the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act passed by the U.S. Congress last year, the U.S. Department of State has to give an annual review of the level of Hong Kong independence based on the “one country, two modes” mechanism.

US officials have delayed the publication of this review in recent weeks to see how Beijing is planning to establish security laws in Hong Kong. Every movement to force through law will be deemed a violation of the autonomous rights of Hong Kong and will have a significant impact on the assessment, a source of knowledge or problem.

Two U.S. senators on 21/5 claimed they would propose a bill punishing Chinese officials and entities to enforce security laws in Hong Kong and penalize both the banks that made food with them.

U.S. state Congressman Jim McGovern, Massachusetts Democratic Party member, emphasized the passing of Hong Kong Security Law “is the direct blow to the heart” of the mechanism “a country, two modes”.

“Beijing should reconsider the act of causing this unnecessary stress escalation,” he writes on Twitter.
