'Not right time for security law'
(01-22 14:20)

An executive councillor, Fanny Law Chiu-fun, has said now is not the right time to introduce national security legislation in Hong Kong.
She echoed the view of the Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, who dispelled rumurs yesterday that the controversial issue would soon be back on the government's agenda. Mrs Law said she would advise the government against tackling such a thorny issue when it had so many other things to deal with. --RTHK
