HK security law expected to pass on Tues

U.S. imposes visa restrictions on Chinese officials over Hong Kong autonomy: Pompeo

Pompeo also said that China has reportedly accused "at least one member of Hong Kong's Legislative Council of misconduct" and has moved to "unilaterally and arbitrarily impose national security legislation on Hong Kong".

While outlawing acts of subversion, secession, terrorism and colluding with foreign forces, the legislation will allow China's security agencies to set up shop publicly in the city for the first time.

The US-China diplomatic ties continue to go through rough patch on various issues as the latter warned on Monday that it would impose visa restrictions on US citizens who had "behaved egregiously" over Hong Kong, ahead of expected approval from Beijing lawmakers for a controversial national security law in the city.

Nathan Law Kwun-chung, another prominent activist who co-founded the pro-democracy group Demosisto with Wong, said: "What's the most worrying is not the offense itself, but the fact that some offenders will face trial on the mainland", where the courts are directly under the Communist Party's control and known for arbitrary detention.

Protesters in Hong Kong marched against the Chinese government's new national security law this weekend.

Law said worldwide pressure is essential to keep China in check.

A survey conducted by the Hong Kong Public Opinion Research Institute for Reuters showed the national security legislation is opposed by a majority of people in the financial centre.

Hong Kong media reports say the law is widely expected to pass on Tuesday when the meeting ends.

U.S. imposes visa restrictions on Chinese officials over Hong Kong autonomy: Pompeo

Alan Leong, chairman of Hong Kong's pro-democracy Civic Party, wrote that he agreed with Bütikofer's statement. Our actions will be strong.

Tian Feilong, executive director of the Center for Legal Studies in One Country Two Systems at Beihang University in Beijing, said the move clearly illustrates the logic of hegemony in USA diplomacy, as well as its attempt to interfere in another country's domestic affairs.

Mr Pompeo's action comes one day after the US Senate unanimously approved a bill that would impose mandatory economic sanctions in the United States against Chinese officials and Hong Kong police identified as hurting the city's autonomous status. Hong Kong's chief executive will also have the power to appoint judges handling related court cases locally.

Li Zhanshu, chairman of the NPC standing committee, then tabled the finalized bill, according to Xinhua.

Riot police stand guard to avoid mass gathering during a protest in Hong Kong, China on June 28, 2020.

"Due to persisting social unrest, Hong Kong police have cautiously assessed the risks and believe that some participants of this public assembly and public procession may depart from the planned rally location and marching route and violently vandalise buildings as listed above", the letter published by the CHRF on Facebook says.

"China has said it wants to improve" the lives of those who live in Hong Kong, but reality, that means stripping the people of Hong Kong of the basic rights and liberties guaranteed to them under the 1984 treaty, Hawley said.
