Storyline


National security legislation for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is a necessary and crucial move to safeguard the stability, prosperity and the rule of law in the region, said law experts.

Experts pointed out that in the 23 years since the return of Hong Kong to its motherland, the legislation concerning Article 23 of the Hong Kong Basic Law has not yet been completed. There are obvious loopholes in the legal system and enforcement mechanism for safeguarding national security. In recent years, various activities that endanger national security have become increasingly fierce in the region. The National People's Congress has the power and duty to make such a reasonable and lawful decision.

"It is difficult for Hong Kong to effectively handle the challenge of extremist forces with its own autonomy. Under the principle of 'one country, two systems', the central government has an inescapable constitutional responsibility to provide a bottom-line protection for the prosperity, stability and the rule of law in Hong Kong," said Tian Feilong, associate professor of the Law School of the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

National security legislation is a common practice in many countries. The experts said that only by effectively preventing, stopping and punishing illegal and criminal acts and activities that endanger national security and by strengthening the national security shield, can Hong Kong's long-term prosperity and stability have a solid legal foundation.

"In terms of the building of a modern state system, the national security law is the basis for the building of the whole state power and is indispensable," said Chen Ruihong, professor of Law School of Peking University.

"The decision of the National People's Congress provides a legal basis for preventing and curbing the acts that endanger national security in Hong Kong in the future. The decision is only targeted on the acts that seriously jeopardize national security, and will not affect the freedoms enjoyed by Hong Kong residents under the Hong Kong Basic Law. It shows the Hong Kong society and the international community the resolve of the Chinese government to safeguard the country's sovereignty, security and territorial integrity," said Wang Lei, another professor of Law School of Peking University.
