Carrie Lam says discussing independence unlawful

Local | 19 Sep 2017 1:20 pm

The Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor said today that discussions of independence for Hong Kong is in breach of the law.

"There is no room for any discussion on the independence of Hong Kong because that breaches "one country, two systems,” which underlines the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong. That violates the Basic Law, and is absolutely not in the overall interest of Hong Kong. So that position is very clear.''

She made the comments ahead of a meeting with her political advisers.
