Hong Kong security law creates ‘human rights emergency’: Amnesty – UCA News

Hong Kong’s national security law has created a “human rights emergency”, Amnesty International said June 30, a year after China imposed it on the city to crush a pro-democracy movement. The legislation — which criminalizes anything authorities deem subversion, secession, collusion with foreign forces and terrorism with up to life in prison — has radically transformed Hong Kong’s political and legal landscape. “In one year, the National Security Law has put Hong Kong on a rapid path to becoming a police state and created a human rights emergency for the people living there,” Amnesty’s Asia-Pacific Regional Director Yamini Mishra said.
