Beijing urges Germany to respect Hong Kong’s rule of law in asylum dispute over Mong Kok riot fugitives Ray Wong and Alan Li

China’s foreign affairs office in Hong Kong has entered into the city’s ongoing diplomatic dispute with Germany, voicing strong dissatisfaction over the granting of asylum to two local fugitives. The Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China said in a statement on Saturday that it had lodged a solemn representation with Germany when its top official met the acting German consul general, David Schmidt, on Friday. The stern rhetoric came after Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said that she had summoned Schmidt – a move she said was approved by the foreign ministry’s office in Hong Kong.
