CE believes CPG will consider report seriously, promptly
Today (November 29), to meet with reporters, John Lee said that Jimmy Lai’s case details were also written in the report submitted. He believes that the Central People's Government (CPG) will consider the report seriously, speed up the process and make a decision on this case promptly.
A spokesman for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government said on Nov. 28 that the Chief Executive submitted a report to the CPG this evening in response to a formal letter issued by the CPG in accordance with Article 11 of the National Security Law and recommended in the report that a request be made to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to issue an interpretation in accordance with Article 65 of the National Security Law, to clarify the question "Based on the legislative intent and objectives of the National Security Law, can an overseas solicitor or barrister who is not qualified to practice generally in Hong Kong participate by any means in the handling of work in cases concerning offence endangering national security?".
