Hong Kong government backs national security laws


“Terrorism is growing in the city and activities which harm national security, such as ‘Hong Kong independence,’ become more rampant,” Secretary for Security John Lee said in a statement.

“In just a few months, Hong Kong has changed from one of the safest cities in the world to a city shrouded in the shadow of violence,” he added, saying national security laws were needed to safeguard the city’s prosperity and stability.

Shares in Hong Kong dipped Monday, bucking a regional rally, after the Hang Seng Index plunged 5.6% on Friday to log its worst day since July 2015.
