Hong Kong National Security issues arrest warrants

HONG KONG / ENGLAND – On 14 December 2023, the Hong Kong police issued arrest warrants under the National Security Law for five people living outside Hong Kong, including some who reside in the UK.

Foreign Secretary David Cameron said:

“The Hong Kong police have again targeted individuals for exercising their right to freedom of expression.

“I have instructed officials in Hong Kong, Beijing and London to raise this issue as a matter of urgency with the Hong Kong and Chinese authorities.

“We will not tolerate any attempt by any foreign power to intimidate, harass or harm individuals or communities in the UK. This is a threat to our democracy and fundamental human rights.

“We call on Beijing to repeal the National Security Law and end its persecution of political activists.”
