Hong Kong’s Secretary for Security Chris Tang Ping-keung said that the arrests of people who violate the National Security Law (NSL) “will never stop”. Tang made the remarks at a symposium on the first anniversary since the introduction of the NSL, local media reported on Saturday, August 14. Among the attendees were Tam Yiu-chung, member of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress in Beijing, and Choi Yuk-lin, Undersecretary of Hong Kong’s Education Bureau.

Asked if the government has a timetable for the arrest of people who “sowed chaos in Hong Kong”, Tang said that the prosecution of those who violate the law “will never stop», adding that if people “endanger national security”, the relevant government departments will enforce the law. Tang further stated that the NSL has restored stability in Hong Kong, and that the population needs a “correct view of the country” because “only if you have a country you have a home”.
