Spokesperson of the Commissioner's Office: The Political Motivation of Some American Politicians has been Laid Bare
2020/03/06
 

In a recent statement, some lawmakers of the US House Committee on Foreign Affairs accused the HKSAR government's legal action against Jimmy Lai and others of being "politically motivated". The Spokesperson of the Commissioner's Office condemned and firmly opposed the accusation, saying that it is exactly these politicians' absurd comments that are politically motivated, which have distorted the truth in an attempt to sow trouble in Hong Kong and China at large.

 

The Spokesperson pointed out that no one is above the law in Hong Kong, a city governed by the rule of law. There is solid evidence that Jimmy Lai and his ilk have long been engaged in anti-China activities and attempted to mess up Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong police took the legal action against them in strict accordance to the law. But some American politicians have tried to shift the blame, painting the suspects as "Hong Kongers who are exercising their rights to free assembly and free speech" while accusing the police of "the politically motivated use of Hong Kong's legal system". They have also threatened with the "Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act", which has only further revealed their disregard for the rule of law and endorsement of the wrongdoers.

 

The Spokesperson reiterated that Hong Kong is part of China, and its affairs are completely China's internal affairs. The political motivated attempts of some American politicians to mess up Hong Kong and China as a whole are doomed to failure.
