Chinese parliament approves Hong Kong security law

May 28, 2020 22:44 IST

China's legislature on Thursday approved controversial national security laws for Hong Kong. Delegates of China’s National People’s Congress broke out into applause in Beijing’s Great Hall of the People after voting through a draft decision that paves the way for sweeping anti-sedition laws to be directly enacted in Hong Kong. The legislation, aimed at stamping out protests that have racked the city for the past year, would ban “any acts or activities” that endanger China’s national security, including separatism, subversion and terrorism. The legislation would also allow “national security agencies” – potentially Chinese security forces – to operate in Hong Kong.
