     The Police Force has committed to maintain the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong, the Commander-in-chief of the Chinese People・s Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison, Mr Tan Benhong, said when inspecting a passing-out parade of the Hong Kong Police College today (July 9).

     Addressing the ceremony, Mr Tan said, :The rule of law is one of the core values of Hong Kong, and that the Police Force is always one of the unwavering guardians of this value. Since Hong Kong・s return to the Motherland, the Force has committed to supporting the HKSAR Government in administering Hong Kong in accordance with the law, and fully implementing the .One Country, Two Systems・ principle and the Basic Law for the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong.;
