We haven't had any such law for 23 years despite the requirement under Article 23 of the Basic Law; we haven't been able to enact such laws to satisfy the requirements of Basic Law and the constitution, essentially because of the filibustering tactic of the opposition minority in the legislative council. Now that the National People's Congress Standing Committee has passed this piece of law for Hong Kong, we have filled in part of this vacuum. Some of the seven offenses under Article 23 have yet to be legislated against by the Hong Kong government itself."

Things that we had never come across before in Hong Kong, Hong Kong was such a peaceful and law-abiding city. We've also seen interventions by external forces outside of Hong Kong coming in from foreign countries. And now with the piece of law and we have a commission in Hong Kong from the central government together with its local counterpart to take care of these issues, so it's reassuring to know that we now have the legal means and also the implementation means to tackle these problems."

Hong Kong used to be very law-abiding place and we had one of the best records in terms of law and order, but things were turned upside down. And so I think everyone in Hong Kong holds out hope that with the passage and implementation of this new law, Hong Kong will recover and have stability and people would be able to carry on their normal lives as soon as possible."

Storyline


The national security legislation fills the legal vacuum in the region and offers legal means to tackle with terrorism and external interferences, said Leung Chun-ying, vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference and former chief executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) on Tuesday.

Leung said that the national security law tailor-made for Hong Kong, adopted at the 20th session of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature on Tuesday, will protect the region just like other countries or communities do in the world.

"All countries and all communities in the world have some sort of national security law to protect these communities. We haven't had any such law for 23 years despite the requirement under Article 23 of the Basic Law; we haven't been able to enact such laws to satisfy the requirements of Basic Law and the constitution, essentially because of the filibustering tactic of the opposition minority in the legislative council. Now that the National People's Congress Standing Committee has passed this piece of law for Hong Kong, we have filled in part of this vacuum. Some of the seven offenses under Article 23 have yet to be legislated against by the Hong Kong government itself," said Leung.

Leung said that before the adoption of the national security law in the HKSAR, the existing laws failed to address a series of problems such as terrorism and external interferences which have brought chaos to the city once known for its safety and law-abiding.

With the national security legislation in the region, these above mentioned issues will be addressed and it also provides legal means to tackle those problems, Leung said.

"Terrorism, for example, resulted in Article 23 of the Basic Law. We have had a number of seizures by police of explosive devices for example and weapons. Things that we had never come across before in Hong Kong, Hong Kong was such a peaceful and law-abiding city. We've also seen interventions by external forces outside of Hong Kong coming in from foreign countries. And now with the piece of law and we have a commission in Hong Kong from the central government together with its local counterpart to take care of these issues, so it's reassuring to know that we now have the legal means and also the implementation means to tackle these problems," said Leung.

The former chief executive also said that what Hong Kong needs the most is stability and that's what all the Hong Kong residents are longing for. The law is expected to bring peace and tranquility for the region, Leung said.

"We need stability before we have prosperity. We did not have stability in the past twelve months, the kind of stability and a level of stability that Hong Kong is so used to. Hong Kong used to be very law-abiding place and we had one of the best records in terms of law and order, but things were turned upside down. And so I think everyone in Hong Kong holds out hope that with the passage and implementation of this new law, Hong Kong will recover and have stability and people would be able to carry on their normal lives as soon as possible," said Leung.
