The Security Law serves the Communist State’s purpose in Hong Kong, tightening its grip over the city as the people suffer greatly. Three months after the imposing of Hong Kong Security Law, the systems in the city with over one hundred years tradition are being continually violated. The harbour city, which had once provided refuge for an outpouring of people from Communist China is now being trampled.
A primary teacher is banned for life from their profession, having allowed students to talk about issues related to the protests; an RTHK TV reporter stands accused of aggressive questioning during press conferences. Other journalists are in the firing line for reporting in ways that “cross the line.” a legislator was denounced for a Facebook anti-police post and synchronized demands have been issued for his disqualification as a medical Doctor.
According to Stand News, a judge who ruled the testimony from the Police was unreliable, will be relocated to a less favourable department. As an additional punishment, he was criticized by the CCP controlled Newspaper Ta Kung Pao. Other judges who were believed hold a merciful decision on the punishment for the protesters have also been targeted by the media and doxing tactic, and they are subjected to complaints from the pro-CCP Party DAB (Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of HK).
The article from Hong Kong Free Press on 11th Oct states: “the existence of the Security Law is a perfect vehicle for pursuing political vendettas.” The report compared the current situation in Hong Kong with the one in Communist China 40 years ago, when there was no sense of right or wrong but absolute power. What power on earth lasts forever? And who is exempt from the ultimate judgement?
