Hang Seng Unmoved as Hong Kong Recession Eases

He accused Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom of "gross interference in China's internal affairs", and of using Hong Kong's new security law as an excuse to "unilaterally" announce the treaty suspensions.

New Zealand has suspended its extradition treaty with Hong Kong in response to China's recently enacted national security law for the territory, stating Hong Kong's judicial system is now not "sufficiently independent" from mainland China as expected under its one country, two systems structure.

New Zealand made the same move after the other three.

Referring to the hackers' penetrating the Hong Kong Study Mission and its Catholic Diocese, the document suggested it could "provide a valuable intelligence source for both monitoring the diocese's relations with the Vatican and its position on Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement amidst widespread protests and the recent sweeping Hong Kong national security law".
Its embassy here wrote that the decision was a "serious violation of worldwide law" and a "gross interference" in China's internal affairs.

"Once the local epidemic is contained again and external environment continues to improve, the Hong Kong economy hopefully will gradually recover in the rest of the year", a government spokesman said in a statement. China said it reserved the right to respond to this too. In general, cases will be tried in Hong Kong, but the law allows for mainland jurisdiction in some circumstances.

"Secondly, we have updated our travel advice to alert New Zealanders to the risks presented by the National Security Law".

Foreign secretary Dominic Raab says the extradition treaty's been "immediately and indefinitely" halted.

Hong Kong's economy shrank by 9% in the latest quarter, hurt by the coronavirus pandemic and facing more damage from the loss of US trade privileges due to a security law imposed by Beijing. "If China in future shows adherence to the "one country, two systems" framework then we could reconsider this decision".

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the "imposition" of the new security law in Hong Kong by Beijing was a "serious violation" of the country's global obligations. "We still have to observe the trend", stated Dr Chuang Shuk- kwan, head of the infectious illness branch at the Centre for Health Protection, the South China Morning Post reported.

The bloc voiced "grave concern" over the new law, saying it would severely erode freedoms in Hong Kong that were supposed to be protected under the terms of its handover from Britain to China.
