Chief Executive Lee Kar-chao.
[09:54] When asked if the central government asked the Hong Kong government to submit a request for interpretation?
Li Jiachao emphasized that he received a letter from the central government requesting the Hong Kong government to submit a report on the implementation of the "National Security Law", so he put forward the request in the report. Regarding the final result of the interpretation of the law, he described that the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress has "absolute power" and will leave it to the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress to answer. .
[09:50] Li Jiachao said that upon learning that the central government had received the report, he felt that the central government attached great importance to it and would deal with it as soon as possible.
He emphasized that the interpretation of the law is to explain whether overseas barristers and lawyers who do not have local full-fledged qualifications can participate in the handling of cases endangering national security based on the legislative intent and goals of the National Security Law. The case is the first of its kind and has no precedent.
Li Jiachao said that this interpretation of the law is only for overseas people who do not have local comprehensive professional qualifications. In other words, foreign barristers and lawyers who have local practicing qualifications can participate in national security cases.
[09:44] Li Jiachao said that the central government submitted a report last night and proposed an interpretation of the law. He noticed that three central agencies supported the practice. The Department of Justice will apply to postpone the trial of Li Zhiying's case. I believe that the central government attaches great importance to the interpretation request and will deal with it as soon as possible. .
The epidemic turned negative on the 6th day Li Jiachao: The quick test has been "one line" except for occasional coughing and the body is fine. Li Jiachao's quick test was negative for two consecutive days
