People chanting "Hong Kong independence" slogan in Causeway Bay may have violated National Security Law
Attention duty announcers, radio and TV stations:
Please broadcast the following message as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:
     At around 1pm today (July 1), some people gathered in the vicinity of East Point Road in Causeway Bay and chanted "Hong Kong independence, the only way out", a slogan suspected to be inciting or abetting others to commit secession and may therefore violate the Law of the People's Republic of China on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (National Security Law). Police have already raised the purple warning flag and issued repeated warnings to the crowd, clearly stating that chanting such slogan may constitute an offence under the National Security Law.
     Police request the crowd to stop all illegal acts, otherwise the persons involved may be arrested or prosecuted.
