SB strongly opposes unfounded allegations against Police's enforcement actions
     A spokesman for the Security Bureau (SB) strongly opposes the unfounded and false accusations made by the National Taiwan University Graduate Students Association against the Police's law enforcement actions on June 4. The SB condemns the organisation for disregarding the facts, confusing right and wrong, and attempting to shift the focus by smearing the lawful actions of the Police.

     The spokesman seriously reiterated that all law enforcement actions taken by law enforcement agencies are based on evidence, strictly according to the law and for the acts of the people or organisations concerned, and have nothing to do with their political stance or background. Hong Kong is governed by the rule of law where laws must be observed and lawbreakers will be held to account in accordance with the law. No one is above the law.

     Hong Kong residents enjoy the rights and freedoms under the Basic Law, the Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance and other relevant laws. The Hong Kong National Security Law clearly stipulates that human rights shall be respected and protected in safeguarding national security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the rights and freedoms that Hong Kong residents enjoy under the Basic Law, and the provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights as applied to Hong Kong, including the freedom of speech, shall be protected in accordance with the law. However, members of the public must abide by the law, not affect social order, and maintain national security when exercising these freedoms.
