Storyline


Chinese lawmakers Tuesday voted to adopt the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

The law was passed at the 20th session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature.

President Xi Jinping signed a presidential order to promulgate the law, which goes into effect as of the date of promulgation.

On Tuesday morning, a total of 162 members of the NPC Standing Committee attended the second plenary meeting of the session and voted unanimously to pass the law.

In the afternoon, the session's third plenary meeting was held, with attendance of 163 NPC Standing Committee members, to deliberate a draft decision to list the law in Annex III to the HKSAR Basic Law.

Entrusted by the Council of Chairpersons of the NPC Standing Committee, Shen Chunyao, head of the Legislative Affairs Commission of the NPC Standing Committee, explained the draft decision to the lawmakers.

In the closing meeting of the session, 163 lawmakers voted unanimously to adopt the decision to list the law in Annex III to the HKSAR Basic Law.

The newly-adopted decision stipulates that the law shall be applied in the HKSAR by way of promulgation by the region.

The law is a landmark one for upholding and improving the institutional framework of the "one country, two systems" under new circumstances. It will effectively safeguard national security, and lasting peace, stability and prosperity in Hong Kong, and ensure the steady and sustained development of the cause of the "one country, two systems" in Hong Kong.

The law, formulated based on an NPC decision on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the HKSAR to safeguard national security, has 66 articles in six chapters, and is a comprehensive law with substantive law, procedural law and organic law contents.

The law clearly defines the duties and government bodies of the HKSAR for safeguarding national security; the four categories of offences -- secession, subversion, terrorist activities, and collusion with a foreign country or external elements to endanger national security -- and their corresponding penalties; jurisdiction, applicable law and procedure; office of the central people's government for safeguarding national security in the HKSAR; and other contents.

It thus establishes the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the HKSAR to safeguard national security.

Li Zhanshu, chairman of the 13th NPC Standing Committee, said the "one country, two systems" cause should be steered toward the right direction.

Li also presided over three meetings of the Council of Chairpersons of the NPC Standing Committee.

The 13th NPC Standing Committee also held a ceremony to take oath of allegiance to the Constitution on Tuesday afternoon.
