Organisation's case being followed up

September 7, 2021

Secretary for Security Tang Ping-keung today said legal action must be taken if any organisation refuses to provide information as requested by Police under the National Security Law.


Police's National Security Department issued notices in writing to several organisations including Hong Kong Alliance, requiring them to provide information.


Speaking to reporters after a Legislative Council Panel on Security meeting, Mr Tang said the notices were issued pursuant to Schedule 5 of the Implementation Rules for Article 43 of the National Security Law.


He explained that relevant law provisions state clearly the definition of foreign agents, which includes people who receive financial support from overseas political parties or organisations and then act to the benefit of those foreign organisations.


The security chief added that as legal action is likely to be taken, he cannot disclose further details of the case at the moment.
