The "47-person primary election case" is under trial. The spokesperson of the Commissioner's Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong stated that relevant agencies and members of the US Congress have published fallacies related to Hong Kong, arbitrarily suggesting that the SAR courts try the case, blatantly defaming the human rights and rule of law in Hong Kong, and interfering with the normal judiciary of the SAR. This expresses strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition.
The spokesperson said that before the nomination of candidates for the Legislative Council in 2020, anti-China chaos in Hong Kong organized primary elections in an attempt to seize control of the Legislative Council, with the intention of shutting down the SAR government and intimidating the central government and the SAR government.
The spokesperson pointed out that this method seriously interferes with and undermines the democratic election system stipulated in the Basic Law of Hong Kong, and is also suspected of violating the crime of subversion of state power stipulated in the "Hong Kong National Security Law".
The spokesperson stated that no one has the privilege of being above the law, and that no rights and freedoms can break through the bottom line of national security. He criticized politicians in certain countries for holding hypocritical double standards, repeatedly interfering with the judicial organs of the SAR in handling cases in accordance with the law, and putting political manipulation above above the law.
The spokesperson emphasized that the rule of law is an important cornerstone of Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, and the cause of "one country, two systems" has always been operating on the track of the rule of law.
He also pointed out that the law enforcement and judicial organs of the SAR strictly enforce the law and administer justice impartially, vigorously defend the constitutional order of the SAR established by the Constitution and the Basic Law, and lay a solid foundation for the rule of law for Hong Kong to achieve better development.
The spokesperson reiterated that in the face of the historical trend of Hong Kong's transition from chaos to governance to governance and prosperity, the shameful plot of Western politicians to disrupt Hong Kong by interfering in the judiciary is doomed to fail.
No external intervention can shake the foundation of the rule of law in Hong Kong and the international community's confidence in the rule of law in Hong Kong, nor can it shake our determination to firmly safeguard "one country, two systems" and national security.
