S for S speaks on national security and FCC premises tenancy contract
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Security, Mr Tang Ping-keung, at a media session after attending the meeting of the Legislative Council today (November 30):
Reporter: Firstly, why is the Government now deciding to enforce against these protests that we are seeing in Hong Kong, and did you also say that these protests are seeing a sign of colour revolution? Are you calling these protests a form of colour revolution? Secondly, what sort of measures that the Government want to follow up on these protests, now that you decided that these are threats of national security? What are these measures? And lastly, we also want to ask about the lease renewal of the FCC (Foreign Correspondents' Club). There are some national security measures put in the tenancy agreement. Can you confirm whether these are applied? What are these agreements? What is the reason for these new national security terms?
Secretary for Security: First of all, in the past few days, what we have observed that happened inside the universities and on the street corners are that there are people using this opportunity to incite against the Central Government. We can see some of the familiar faces who were actively participating in the illegal acts in 2019. And the second question regarding the FCC, although you know I am not involved in the contract, I think it is very sensible that if a location is being used to act against the national interests of our country, why we should allow them to use the premises. I think this is a very simple question.
