    1 country, 1.1 systems

    The content of the courses, some of which Reuters has seen exclusively, sets out the dangers of breaking the law, in one case demonstrating how a message in a chat group could be interpreted as a serious breach, punishable by up to life in prison.

    At Hong Kong Baptist University, at least one CCTV camera was present in the lecture hall, while an unidentified photographer took pictures, according to two students who attended.

    Hong Kong's Transformed Criminal Justice System: Instrument of Fear
    November 20, 2021

    Several of us were recently asked to write essays for Taiwan’s Academia Sinica on developments in Hong Kong. These will be formally published in March but, in view of the pace of events and the importance of the topic, we have been authorized to make our views available now.

    The CCP, the NSL agents it sent from the mainland, and its minions in the SAR government promptly demonstrated that the power to arbitrarily deprive people of their personal liberty, as well as their freedoms of expression, is the power to silence a dissatisfied community by destroying the careers, families and civic support systems of the targeted resisters. This is an application of Chairman Mao’s famous maxim that “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun”. Beijing’s use of the NSL to manipulate and distort Hong Kong’s post-colonial criminal justice system has imposed the silence of the graveyard on a vibrant people. The fear that arbitrary criminal justice has long created among PRC citizens on the mainland has now been brought to their Hong Kong comrades.[5]
