Hong Kong fencing representative Zhang Jialang won the gold medal in the men's individual foil fencing competition last night (26th). It is also the Hong Kong team's second Olympic gold medal after 25 years of separation.
Hundreds of citizens gathered at the apm shopping mall in Kwun Tong last night to watch the live broadcast of the final.
There are fragments circulating on the Internet. When Zhang Jialang received the award, citizens in the apm mall booed while playing the national anthem.
Senior Counsel Tang Jiahua, a member of the Executive Council, reminded that the behavior of "shushing the national anthem" may violate the "National Anthem Act", and we advise the public not to express dissatisfaction while playing the national anthem.

Tang: Don't express dissatisfaction while playing the national anthem
From the videos circulating on the Internet, it can be seen that many citizens booed while playing the national anthem at the apm site last night, and some chanted "We are Hong Kong".
In an interview with "Hong Kong 01", Tang Jiahua pointed out that "boo the national anthem" may violate the "National Anthem Law", depending on the situation, whether law enforcement agencies will enforce the law.
Tang Jiahua believes that there are so many people at the scene that it is not easy to identify who is booing the national anthem. However, citizens are advised not to express dissatisfaction when playing the national anthem.
