Il­le­gal Or­ga­ni­za­tion

Beijing Review - - THIS WEEK -

The Hong Kong and Ma­cao Af­fairs Of­fice of the State Coun­cil said on Septem­ber 24 it res­o­lutely sup­ports the Hong Kong Spe­cial Ad­min­is­tra­tive Re­gion (HKSAR) Govern­ment’s ban on the so-called “Hong Kong Na­tional Party.”

The HKSAR Govern­ment has an­nounced an order in its gazette to pro­hibit the op­er­a­tion of the “Hong Kong Na­tional Party.” A spokesper­son for the of­fice said it is an un­reg­is­tered and il­le­gal group as well as a “Hong Kong in­de­pen­dence” or­ga­ni­za­tion.

The HKSAR Govern­ment’s de­ci­sion to bar the group from op­er­at­ing ac­cord­ing to rel­e­vant laws and le­gal pro­ce­dures is an ac­tion that should be taken to main­tain na­tional se­cu­rity and the rule of law
