Police to strictly enforce security law

June 30, 2020

Police today said they will resolutely enforce The Law of the People’s Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.


The national security law, which has come into force, clearly stipulates the specific composition and corresponding criminal liability for four types of crimes.


They are: acts of secession, subversion of state power, terrorist activities, and collusion with a foreign country or with external elements to endanger national security.


In response to the various criminal acts that endanger national security, Police will conduct arrests and take other law enforcement action in accordance with the national security law and the laws of Hong Kong to protect the life and property of citizens and the basic rights and freedoms they enjoy under the law.


Noting that the Hong Kong SAR is an inalienable part of the People’s Republic of China, the force added that it is fully responsible for safeguarding the security of Hong Kong as well as the country.


It will fully perform its duties and strictly enforce the law to restore social order and ensure the effective implementation of the national security law in the Hong Kong SAR to safeguard national security.
