Arrest as China enacts tough Hong Kong security law

Published by : Sky News
The first arrest has been made in Hong Kong as China enacts tough new security laws.

Now anyone found guilty of secession, subversion and terrorism could face life in prison.

The law can also be used against people who are not permanent residents of Hong Kong and will ban anyone found guilty of the four crimes from standing in local elections.

Critics have repeatedly expressed fears that the law will be used to target protesters and opposition politicians seen as disloyal to Beijing.
