Xinhua on measures submitted to China’s national legislature for deliberation on Friday.
- draft on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for Hong Kong
- the increasingly notable national security risks in HK have become a prominent problem, the document says
- activities have … harmed the rule of law, and threatened national sovereignty, security and development interests
- Law-based and forceful measures must be taken to prevent, stop and punish such activities, according to the document.
China did not send in troops at the height of the protests in 2019. Will they do so this year? Pretty strong words from the draft.
