Statement by HKSAR Government
     Regarding an announcement made by the British police on charging three men for violating the UK National Security Act, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) issued the following statement:

     The Chinese Embassy in the United Kingdom (UK) has issued a statement and made serious representations to the UK side on the matter. The HKSAR Government has demanded the UK Government to provide full details of relevant information of the alleged matter concerned, and the latter's response is awaited.

     The duties of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London are to maintain close liaison with interlocutors in the local government, business, think tanks and various sectors, with a view to enriching bilateral ties in different areas such as trade, investment, arts and culture, enhancing local people and enterprises' knowledge of Hong Kong's unique strengths, and promoting the economic and trade interests of Hong Kong.

     The HKSAR Government has seriously demanded the UK side to fairly handle the matter, effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office's Office Manager who was alleged to be involved, and ensure that the normal work of the Economic and Trade Office is not affected.
