Amnesty to close Hong Kong offices over National Security Law
Image source, EPA. Amnesty International will shut its offices in Hong Kong over a recently-imposed national security law. The human rights group said the law, imposed by China, makes it "Effectively impossible" for them to operate. The broadly worded national security law in Hong Kong criminalises secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. "This decision, made with a heavy heart, has been driven by Hong Kong's national security law, which has made it effectively impossible for human rights organisations in Hong Kong to work freely and without fear of serious reprisals," she said. "The environment of repression and perpetual uncertainty created by the national security law makes it impossible to know what activities might lead to criminal sanctions."
