    Ironically, if there are a lot of NSL cases there may be fewer perfect loyalists to choose among in the judiciary.

    Asked whether criticising the national security law is now a crime, Carrie Lam says although freedom of speech is protected by the Basic Law and other human rights covenants applicable in Hong Kong, such rights are not absolute.
    “Sometimes [human rights] have to be restrained to ensure ... stability,” she said.
    Lam says if members of the press are fulfilling their duty in asking questions about the national security law, “she cannot see why” such activities would be considered an offence.
    But it will be different if there is evidence to show that such activities involve colluding with foreign forces. “At the end of the day it is a matter of evidence,” she says.

    You know this NSL is making HK'ers guinea pigs. Given the vagueness of law no one knows what constitutes illegal activity under NSL. Only way to find out is when people get charged. If the government mentions what consists illegal upfront instead then order will be restored( but you know that will never happend because they have no idea). Instead this a work in progress law. If there are any loopholes found will reinterpret it at a later date.
