Beijing unlikely to tighten grip, Tam Yiu-chung reckonsLocal | 2 Jul 2019 10:16 am
A member of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, Tam Yiu-chung said he does not believe Beijing will tighten its policies towards Hong Kong as a result of the recent anti-extradition protests.
Speaking on an RTHK radio program, Tam said he does not believe the central government will change its policy just because of just one issue.
He added that he believes Beijing understands that under the One Country, Two Systems policy, people are bound to have different opinions and views on different issues.
He condemned the storming in of the Legislative Council by protesters.
He said young people are free to express their dissatisfaction with the government, but they must consider the methods used.
