It also serves as a warning for us. We must make great efforts to set the education system right. We've found that some students are too young, not mature mentally. In the past, we saw a lot of political organizations and political figures exploited these students to push their political advocacies, misleading them and even inciting them to take radical or illegal actions. We strongly object such practice of using students as the bargaining chips. We strongly denounce such actions."

Storyline


Hong Kong will carry out education in schools in the significance of the draft law on safeguarding national security in Hong Kong and help them better understand the important role of the law in helping ensure stability in Hong Kong, said the region's education secretary on Friday.

Kevin Yeung Yun-hung made the remarks in an exclusive interview with the China Central Television (CCTV), one day after the draft law was submitted to the country's Supreme Power Organ -- National People's Congress for deliberation.

Yeung said that the Hong Kong police authorities had arrested about 3,600 students and 110 faculty members during the period from June last year to the end of May this year. Among them, roughly 1,600 are aged under 18, mostly middle school students and even some primary school students.

"Police data show that of the 9,000 people arrested, about 40 percent were students. I think most adults were deeply saddened by this. It's also heartbreaking for the education system. It also serves as a warning for us. We must make great efforts to set the education system right. We've found that some students are too young, not mature mentally. In the past, we saw a lot of political organizations and political figures exploited these students to push their political advocacies, misleading them and even inciting them to take radical or illegal actions. We strongly object such practice of using students as the bargaining chips. We strongly denounce such actions," he said.

Yeung said that we will, in the next stage, carry out extensive publicity and education in schools to make the student know and abide by the law.

"The priority in our future work is to help students know about the matter, know the importance of law and the legal system, which conforms to our Constitution, the Basic Law and other important laws," he said.

Yeung said that it is of great significance to make students of Hong Kong know the national security law for Hong Kong.

Yeung said: "Why is the national security law for Hong Kong so important? What is the positive role the national security law will play in Hong Kong? All these are very important for them. We must teach them that national security is a duty and an obligation for them. Because they are part of the country, they should think about what positive role they can play for national security and the state development whatever they do. This is what we hope to achieve in the future."
