4 arrested under security law

September 8, 2021

Officers of the Police National Security Department launched enforcement operations in various districts today and arrested three men and one woman for failing to comply with a notice to provide information pursuant to the Implementation Rules for Article 43 of the National Security Law.


Police explained that the people arrested, aged between 36 and 57, are being detained for further enquiries. It added that the investigation is still underway and further arrests may be made.


The Security Bureau expressed its support for the law enforcement actions taken by Police in accordance with the law against an organisation which blatantly indicated that it would not comply with the requirement to provide information under the National Security Law.


​The bureau said ignoring warnings given, the organisation concerned resolutely insisted on refusing to comply with Police’s requirement to provide information. Hence, Police had to take law enforcement actions.


The bureau reiterated that any law enforcement actions taken by the law enforcement agencies are based on evidence, strictly according to the law, and for the acts of the people or entities concerned.


Those who fail to comply with the submission requirements will be liable to a fine of $100,000 and imprisonment for half a year, the bureau added.
