Pompeo: 'Draconian' natl security law ends free HK

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pictured) denounced Beijing's passage of the Hong Kong National Security Law, referring to the legislation as "draconian." He noted the bill exposes the Chinese Communist Party's "greatest" fears and "ends" free Hong Kong.

"The CCP’s draconian national security law ends free Hong Kong and exposes the Party’s greatest fear: the free will and free thinking of its own people," Pompeo stated.

His comments come after China's National People's Congress (NPC) unanimously approved the bill drafted by Beijing which would override the local government in Hong Kong and potentially impact the legislative region's autonomy.
