China passes controversial Hong Kong security law | DW News

Published by : DW News
China's National People's Congress has passed a controversial security law for Hong Kong that critics fear will give Beijing more control over the semi-autonomous territory. A standing committee of the Congress unanimously approved the bill. Beijing says it aims to tackle sedition, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. It has drawn international criticism for being at odds with the "one country, two systems" policy agreed by China when it took control of the former British colony in 1997.
