Security law: Newly elected student union leaders say Chinese University Hong Kong trampled on popular opinion by cutting ties

Newly elected student union leaders have accused the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) of trampling on popular opinion after its management severed ties with the union due to allegedly false statements and possible breaches of the national security law.

Issac Lam Yui-hei, president of the student union cabinet known as “Syzygia,” said early on Friday that the university’s decision was unprecedented.

“The decision to arbitrarily strip us of office not only stripped the 12 Syzygia members of their responsibility, but also rejected a popular mandate supported by 4,000 students,” Lam said, noting that the cabinet received a 99 per cent approval in an election that saw record turnout.
