1-minute news | Meng Wanzhou being followed by US spies in HK: What lessons do we learn?
Although the extradition case of Huawei's Meng Wanzhou has ended, a lot of its details still remain enigmas. The Wall Street Journal recently published a lengthy article revealing the US government's deliberate efforts to crack down on Huawei, the shamelessness of US agents, and the audacity of certain US politicians. It is shocking, but not surprising that the details of Meng's stay in HK are so well known to US agents.
The case of Meng Wanzhou has taught HK people a valuable lesson. The so-called "respect for human rights and the rule of law" advocated by the US is nothing but a false veneer. It also proved how the U.S., which has repeatedly accused others of "espionage," is actually a thief posing as a judge, attempting to distort facts driven by a guilty conscience. It also provides the best footnote to the ongoing Legal Week in HK, underscoring again the need to improve the legal system to protect national security continuously. Indeed, the National Security Law has had a major effect in HK, but it only covers four offenses. HK still has to fill the gap in dealing with the crime of espionage, and only the local legislation of Article 23 of Basic Law will plug this loophole.
