President Xi signs Hong Kong national security law

Chinese President Xi Jinping signed on Tuesday the new national security law for Hong Kong, which was approved earlier in the day, Xinhua reported.

The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress unanimously voted to pass the law earlier, which could be enacted as early as Wednesday. Critics of the legislation claim it will infringe on Hong Kong's autonomy.

Hong Kong's opposition parties and activists already vowed to protest the measure tomorrow despite a police ban on large public gatherings due to the coronavirus pandemic.
