HKSAR Government refutes joint statement by three foreign ministers and US Secretary of State
HKSAR Government refutes joint statement by three foreign ministers and US Secretary of State

The HKSAR Government refuted the joint statement on arrests in Hong Kong made by the foreign ministers of Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, and the United States Secretary of State. The spokesman said it is the HKSAR's constitutional responsibilities to safeguard national security. The National Security Law, or indeed any law in the HKSAR, applies equally to every person in Hong Kong; no one is above the law. The HKSARG is appalled by remarks made by some overseas government officials that seemed to suggest that people with certain political beliefs should be immune to legal sanctions. Taking people who have contravened the law to justice is the duty of every government, and where the offence concerns national security, the interests of the country and every citizen are at stake. This national obligation should be fully respected in the international arena.
