The Canadian government announced yesterday (3rd) that, in response to China's implementation of the "National Security Act of the Port Area," the Canada-Hong Kong Extradition Agreement was suspended and exports of sensitive military materials to Hong Kong were prohibited. When Secretary of Security Li Jiachao attended the radio show this morning, he expressed great disappointment and opposition to the Canadian decision. He believed that the two countries needed mechanisms to protect the social security of the two places, criticized Canadian politics for overriding the rule of law, and needed to explain to the world why fugitives are allowed. He also pointed out that it is understandable if the Canadian side is worried about the arrest of agents, but the National Security Law is aimed at general crimes, and hopes that Canada will not forget its international responsibilities.
In addition, regarding the police taking DNA samples from all arrested persons who violated the national security laws, the questioned approach exceeded the investigation needs. Li Jiachao explained that the Police Force Regulations stated that if a police officer investigates a criminal case, he believes that obtaining the relevant samples is necessary for investigation. It is helpful and can exercise the relevant powers. The police officer will decide according to the actual situation and the circumstances of the case.

Regarding Canada’s cancellation of the Canada-Hong Kong extradition agreement, the Secretary for Justice Zheng Ruohua expressed extreme disappointment and regret in the same program, which violated the basic principles of international law. She also criticized that Canada's attempt to influence the legislation of the National Security Law in this way is an attempt to interfere in China's internal affairs and crack down on the rule of law in both places.
Communicating and coordinating with the National Security Office Zheng Ruohua: It does not mean that you will sue people indiscriminately
The National Security Agency, as the fourth central station in Hong Kong, is responsible for supervising, guiding, coordinating and supporting the Hong Kong SAR in performing its duties of maintaining national security in accordance with the National Security Act of the Port Area. The special prosecution section of the Political Secretary is responsible. Li Jiachao said that the National Security Office will communicate and coordinate with the Office of Public Security, and believes that the National Security Office is the central authority. The Office of the National Security Office is responsible for analyzing the overall national security situation and providing advice to Hong Kong to help formulate work plans, plans and policies. The rest of the work is handed over to the Hong Kong government Responsibility is an expression of trust in the SAR. He also believed that the jurisdiction reserved by the central government under extremely special circumstances would not happen as long as the government did well.
The head of the Prosecution Division of the Department of Justice will be appointed by the chief executive after obtaining the approval of the National Security Council. Zheng Ruohua pointed out that he will communicate with the office in the future, but it does not mean that his work will be interfered with, ignoring the evidence "discriminating people", emphasizing that the conviction must go through the police, There are three thresholds for the Department of Justice and the court. However, she reiterated that the affairs of the Public Office are at the national level and are not subject to the jurisdiction of the SAR Government. Therefore, the work needs to be kept confidential.

The police do not need a search warrant to search the premises Li Jiachao: The current law can handle emergency cases in this way
In addition, the National Security Law allows the police to search premises without the approval of the Chief Executive. Li Jiachao pointed out that under the current law, some emergency cases such as firearms are also approved without a search warrant. The National Security Law applies the same standards. He continued that some agents represent a country’s intelligence unit, which has certain risks and is more likely to promote terrorist activities and needs to be dealt with urgently; in general, it will be handled according to the current criminal case.
Regarding the recent indication that it may mobilize other departments such as the Flying Tigers team, Li Jiachao said that the firearms and explosives have been found in the anti-revision movement, and the police will use all the law enforcement capabilities of the SAR to deal with crimes in the strictest way. However, he said that it is calmer than the past 12 months. In addition to doing a good job of intelligence based on the police, it is also because after the legislation, some people or organizations that promoted Hong Kong independence announced their withdrawal or dissolution, reducing the threat to national security.
