(Xinhua/Lo Ping Fai)People from various sectors in Hong Kong are looking forward to the early implementation of the law on safeguarding national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and hope the new law will ensure Hong Kongs long-term peace and order.
The draft law was submitted for deliberation at the 19th session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National Peoples Congress from June 18 to 20.
Choi Koon-shum, chairman of the Chinese General Chamber of Commence of Hong Kong, said the draft law shows that the central authorities respect, trust and care about the HKSAR and Hong Kong residents and are firmly committed to “one country, two systems.”
Hong Kongs recent stable stock and property markets show that Hong Kong residents and foreign investors have responded positively to the law, Choi said.
Daniel Fung, a senior counsel, said the legislation can strike a balance between differences of mainland and Hong Kong legal systems, adding that recent signs of a resurgence of violence prove that the central authorities must take action as soon as possible.
Wong Kit-hin, chairman of the Hong Kong Legal Professionals Association, said the law is very comprehensive and will only do good to Hong Kong.
The human rights and freedom of Hong Kong residents are not restricted or impacted, and only an extreme minority of people committing crimes endangering national security will be punished, Wong said, adding that the central authorities respect Hong Kongs judicial independence.
Wong expected the enactment of the law will end the chaos and reinforce Hong Kongs status as an international financial center so that more foreign businesses will be reassured and continue to invest in Hong Kong.
During the social unrest in Hong Kong, some opposition figures supported the violent activities and even blatantly asked for interference of external forces, and young people were brainwashed and incited to take part in violent acts, which proves the necessity of the legislation, Lau Ping-cheung, chairman of Hong Kong Coalition of Professional Services, said.
Lo Man-tuen, executive director of Hong Kong Association for Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of China, highlighted the importance of law enforcement.
It is legal and necessary for the office of safeguarding national security in the HKSAR and related organs of the central authorities to exercise jurisdiction over an extremely small number of criminal cases that endanger national security under specific circumstances, Lo said.
The law on safeguarding national security in Hong Kong will play a crucial role in improving the situation of Hong Kong, Lo said. MorePhotoSanssouci Palace illuminated during the Night of Lights in GermanyEndangered black bear captured by camera in ZhejiangFrance enters new phase of de-confinementChina launches last BDS satelliteCOVID-19 testing lab built with air-inflated structure goes into trial operation in BeijingLarge ancient cemetery confirmed in ShanxiNew York City moves into phase two of reopeningOutdoor hot yoga domes popping up in TorontoSothebys live auctions to resume in GenevaTraditional gate-opening ceremony held in SichuanXinjiang villagers find new life in resettlement areaArmed police conduct drill in FujianCOVID-19 testing site built in 70 hoursScenery of oyster cultivation fields in Qinzhou, GuangxiBeijing doubles daily nucleic acid testing capacityDisinfection conducted at meat food research center in BeijingChinas 600 kph maglev train conducts successful test runMount Merapi erupts in IndonesiaJapan completely lifts domestic travel restrictionsTextile industry helps villagers shake off poverty in XinjiangPower stations get overhaul in Taklamakan Desert Flypast performed above London after meeting between British PM Johnson, French President MacronDisinfection operation conducted at produce markets in HubeiEiffel Tower to reopen on June 25Inside nucleic acid testing site in Haidian District of BeijingMore than a 66-million-year-old egg found in AntarcticaNASAs Perseverance Mars rover carries tribute to healthcare workers fighting coronavirusBeijing Railway Station takes strict measures for COVID-19 prevention, controlRussian army hold rehearsal ahead of victory paradeParadise flycatchers spotted in AnhuiHK Disneyland reopens after five-month closureCoaches protest in Berlin to demand government aidGiant Galapagos tortoises head homeBuddhas hand supports 99-meter bridge in E Chinas FujianFugaku supercomputer goes on show in JapanClosed-off management resumed in all communities as Beijing ups COVID-19 emergency responseMost popular in 24h$(function () {$.ajax({type: “get”,dataType: “json”,url: “/part/6/ecns_rank24h.json”,success: function (status) {var str = “”;$.each(status,function(index,obj){obj.title = obj.title.replace(/'/g, ');str +=+obj[“title”]+;});$(“#rank24″).html(str);},error:function(status){}});});MoreTop newsU.S. COVID-19 deaths surpass 120,000 amid soaring new cases Hong Kong people look forward to implementation of law on safeguarding national security in HK China firmly opposes Japans so-called name-changing bill concerning Diaoyu Islands 2 more Trump campaign staffers at Tulsa rally test positive for coronavirus Beijing reports 13 new local COVID-19 casesMoreVideoUnderwater chess game staged at ocean parkCOVID-19 testing site built in 70 hoursLINEMedia partners:Peoples Daily Online|Xinhuanet|China.org.cn|ChinaDaily.com.cn|CGTN|Globaltimes.cn|Chinaplus.cri.cn|Shine.cn|JSCHINA|
