China condemned over new Hong Kong security laws

Published on July 1, 2020 by

There’s been widespread international condemnation of China following a parliamentary vote to impose new national security laws for Hong Kong.

The legislation was drawn up in response to last year’s pro-democracy protests, with residents potentially facing life in jail for taking part.

The UK’s Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab described China’s actions as “grave and deeply troubling”.
