During his weekly press conference Tuesday morning, the head of the local executive, Carrie Lam, has refused to say if this text was actually adopted. "I think that at this moment, it is not for me to comment on the issues relating to the law on national security," said Carrie Lam. For the opposition, pro-democracy, hong Kong and several western countries, including the United States, the G7 or the european Union (EU), this act is, on the contrary, an attack against the freedoms and autonomy of the territory.
