China passes controversial HK law amid protests

Jun 30, 2020 11:56 IST

China has passed a controversial security law giving it sweeping powers over Hong Kong, reports said. Last month China had said it would criminalise any act of secession, subversion, terrorism or collusion with foreign forces. Hong Kong has seen widespread and violent pro-democracy protests sparked by another law dealing with extraditions. Critics say the new law will undermine Hong Kong's judicial independence and destroy the city's unique freedoms.
