Local | 12 Jun 2019 1:39 pm

Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung Kin-chung has urged protesters who are occupying the roads outside the Legislative Council Complex in Admiralty to exercise restraint and leave peacefully.

In a television address he said the government has intensively explained the rationale of amending Hong Kong's extradition law in the past few months and made changes to strengthen human rights protection.

He reiterated that the bill only targets fugitives who have committed serious crimes and not law-abiding people, adding that the government will safeguard and protect the rights and interests of the public.
