Hong Kong Justice Dep’t gives conflicting remarks over Beijing official who urged ‘severe punishment’ of democrats during active court case

by admin

Hong Kong’s Department of Justice has refused to comment further on whether it has a double standard on comments about ongoing trials, after it was challenged over a senior Beijing official who called for “severe punishment” of three pro-democracy figures on trial under the national security law.

The department had previously criticised other comments about ongoing legal proceedings as “inappropriate.”

HKFP submitted two rounds of enquiries to the DoJ this week about the remarks by the director of China’s Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office Xia Baolong in an interview published on Monday.
