CCTV News Client reported on Dec. 11 that for Meng Wanzhou, Vice Chairman of Huawei Group, who holds a HKSAR passport, Chief Executive Lin Zheng Yue-e pointed out that the issuance of the passport is in line with the entry policy and that Meng Wanzhou only holds a valid HKSAR passport at any time.

Lin Zhengyue-e, speaking to the media before the executive meeting today (December 11), said that Mengs arrest had become a diplomatic incident and had entered the judicial process, which should not have been commented on. However, in view of the concerns raised by the incident, the Immigration Department issued a statement on the relevant policies and made an announcement after reviewing the case. Meng Wanzhous issuance of the passport of the Special Administrative Region is entirely consistent with the current entry policy.

She pointed out that Meng, as a permanent resident of Hong Kong, had applied for HKSAR passports many times, each time for specific reasons accepted by the authorities, such as passport damage, personal data change and so on, and his old HKSAR passport would be cancelled every time a new HKSAR passport was issued. Therefore, Meng Wanzhou only holds a valid HKSAR passport at any time.

As for Mengs entry into the country with two special zone passports, Lin Zhengyuee said that this situation was not special. When a passport holder applies for a new passport, but his old passport has a valid visa, which is valid for up to ten years. In order to avoid re-applying for a visa to a certain country, the person concerned uses a valid SAR passport to enter the country and holds a cancelled SAR passport with a valid visa.

Lin Zhengyue-e also said that the incident has become a diplomatic event, and the government generally does not comment on it, but I am afraid that some people may use political hype to cause harm to Hong Kong, so she wants to clarify and safeguard the interests of the public, hoping to allay some peoples doubts.
