Life in jail for anyone who violates China's new Hong Kong security law

Published by : Sky News
China will punish anyone found guilty of secession, subversion and terrorism in Hong Kong to life in prison under the territory's new national security law.

Those found guilty of "colluding with foreign forces" will also face the harshest possible sentences.

The legislation came into effect at 3pm GMT on Tuesday 30 June, and will be presided over by mainland China and not Hong Kong.
