Pro-Beijing group urges enactment of anti-mask lawLocal | 3 Oct 2019 4:10 pm
A group set up by pro-Beijing figures has today urged the government to enact the anti-mask law as soon as possible as the violence in the city is escalating.
The "anti-mask law promotional group" held a press briefing this afternoon. It said as the anti-extradition law amendment saga is continuing, the violent protests have affected Hong Kong's livelihood and economic development, and led to a sharp drop in businesses and loss of people's earnings.
The group is convened by Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong lawmaker, Elizabeth Quat, and other members include local deputy to the 13th National People's Congress, Witman Hung Wai-man, and former Junior Police Officers Association chairman, Joe Chan Cho-kwong.
Its advisers include National People's Congress Standing Committee member, Tam Yiu-chung, Basic Law Committee vice chairwoman, Maria Tam Wai-chu, and New People's Party lawmaker and executive councilor, Regina Ip Lau Suk-yee.
