Govt dismisses concerns over national security law
(01-22 18:32)

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying and other senior officials have dismissed concerns that the government is considering another bid to introduce Article 23 national security legislation.
A Beijing legal expert has said that such a law should be enacted following last month's break-in by protesters at the the PLA barracks in Admiralty.
Leung said that the SAR government has no plans, at present, to draw up legislation. But he stressed that it does have a constitutional duty under the Basic Law to eventually comply with Beijing's demand for such a law. --RTHK
