S for S speaks on national security law
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Security, Mr John Lee, at a media session after attending the Legislative Council Panel on Security meeting today (June 2):

Reporter: How would you tell Beijing? I mean some people don't like the national security law, how would you tell them? How exactly would you advise them on the prosecution part?

Secretary for Security: I think I will reflect the views of different people. There are people who support it and people who do not. Obviously I will reflect what is happening in Hong Kong and what I have heard. I am in charge of the enforcement side, so I will do my best to reflect how law enforcement agencies operate under the common law system, how the collection of evidence and presentation of evidence will take place in court and how some common law principles will be applied in the adjudication of the cases.

(Please also refer to the Chinese portion of the transcript.)
