China rejects criticism to human rights situation in Hong Kong, Macao

Beijing, Jul 29 (Prensa Latina) China on Friday rejected the concluding observations made by the UN Human Rights Committee concerning the situation of those guarantees in Hong Kong and Macao, after considering that they are biased and not based on facts.

The country’s central Government defended the national security law in Hong Kong, stating that its adoption passed after extensive consultations with various sectors and followed transparent procedures.

It noted that the operations undertaken under that regulation were based on laws and facts, independent and impartial trials have been ensured, and the rights of suspects have been duly protected.

It mentioned as a result the prevention, detection and punishment to the illegal and criminal activities that jeopardize national security, as well as safeguarding social prosperity and stability of the area, and the rights and freedoms of the vast majority of people, including the freedom of speech and press freedom.

It also referred to the improvements in the electoral system with political power in the hands of patriots, and the election of Hong Kong’s Legislative Council and Chief Executive with broad public support.

Beijing also cited the processes of the political system in Macau and stressed that local authorities are fulfilling “their legitimate constitutional obligations when they protect the national flag, the national emblem, the national anthem, and other symbols and representations” of China.
