 The HKSAR is responsible for maintaining national security legislation

Looking at the draft notes made to the meeting by the head of the legal working committee of the Standing Committee of the National Peoples Congress, from the division of responsibilities between the central government and the SAR, to the delineation of relevant organizations and responsibilities, to the clarification of case jurisdiction, legal application and procedures, the national security legislation shows the trust and dependence on the Hong Kong SAR government to the greatest extent, and implements the principle of one country, two systems, Hong Kong people governing Hong Kong and a high degree of autonomy u3002

The greatest degree of trust in the SAR is mainly reflected in highlighting the subject of responsibility and enabling the SAR to fulfill its constitutional responsibility and main responsibility for safeguarding national security. In other words, no country in the world can do that when a sovereign country leaves the maintenance of its national security affairs to the local authorities. This not only shows the determination and courage of the central government to safeguard national security, but also shows great trust in the SAR government.

Specifically, the draft national security law of the port area is clear, including law enforcement, prosecution and judicial work to be completed by the SAR, and the vast majority of cases to be handled by the SAR. However, when the central authorities exercise the relevant law enforcement power and jurisdiction, there are limits, self-restraint and few. Only when the special zone cant manage and manage well cases endangering national security, will the central government step in. One is the vast majority and the other is the few. The central government will not replace the responsibilities of the relevant agencies of the HKSAR, nor will it affect the independent judicial power and the power of final adjudication enjoyed by the HKSAR in accordance with the basic law. Those who spread the voice of one country, two systems is dead can stop, and those who think that the end of judicial independence can also stop.

We should rely on the SAR to the greatest extent, that is, we should establish and improve relevant legal systems and enforcement mechanisms, and we believe that the SAR can do a good job. The vitality of law lies in its implementation. Hong Kongs national security legislation, rather than shouting slogans and pretending to be anything but practical, depends on the SARs efforts to strengthen law enforcement, justice and other forces, and strengthen the work related to safeguarding national security.

For example, the special administrative region has set up a national security maintenance committee to take the main responsibility; the police department of the Special Administrative Region government has set up a department to maintain national security, equipped with law enforcement forces. For example, the Department of justice of the SAR government has set up a special prosecution department for national security crime cases, which is responsible for relevant prosecution work and other related legal affairs; the chief executive of the SAR has appointed qualified judges to handle crimes against national security. It can be said that the law enforcement, prosecution and trial are clear at a glance. In the face of clear and definite regulations, those plans that want to confuse the public and disturb the public will inevitably fail.

However, we have seen some Western politicians unite with the forces of Hong Kong Independence, black violence and speculation to slander Hong Kongs national security legislation. On the 19th, the European Parliament also passed relevant resolutions on national security legislation involving Hong Kong. We firmly oppose such double standards and gross interference in Chinas internal affairs.

National security belongs to state affairs, and national security legislation belongs to the central authority. Throughout the world, the law of safeguarding national security in the United States can be called the iron wall, and the British courts will not accept judicial review against national security. Which country is allowed to engage in activities endangering national security on its own land? Isnt the FBI, CIA and MI5, which are well known in the world, all the institutions for safeguarding national security? Are they willing to let the local government of their country exercise the power of safeguarding national security? China has entrusted the main responsibility for safeguarding national security to Hong Kong, and it has been attacked by them. Its internationally famous double standards are clearly revealed.

This also reminds Hong Kong people that national security legislation is a touchstone. If we expect long-term stability and stability in Hong Kong, we should support it without worrying about it. If we want the stability of the one country, two systems to go far, we should support it rather than oppose it.

Hong Kong is Chinas Hong Kong, and its affairs are Chinas internal affairs. More than 7 million Hong Kong citizens are part of the 1.4 billion Chinese people, and it is reasonable to safeguard national security in Hong Kong. Hong Kongs national security legislation is full of sincerity from the central government, and the SAR has great responsibilities. We have reason to believe that with the firm support of the Central Committee, the strong protection of national security law, the determined efforts of the SAR government and the strong support of the Hong Kong people, Hong Kong will surely overcome the storm and meet a better tomorrow.
