China passes controversial Hong Kong security law

, 93 news, 2 views

China’s parliament passed national security legislation for Hong Kong on Tuesday, setting the stage for the most radical changes to the former British colony’s way of life since it returned to Chinese rule almost exactly 23 years ago.

Cable TV, citing an unidentified source, said the law was passed unanimously by the Chinese parliament’s top decision-making body.

The legislation pushes Beijing further along a collision course with the United States, Britain and other Western governments, which have said it erodes the high degree of autonomy the global financial hub was granted at its July 1, 1997 handover.
