, January 1 According to the WeChat official account of the Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hong Kong, in response to the so-called "Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China Policy", some British anti-China politicians, and members of the European Parliament arguing that the Hong Kong SAR court will try the case of Jimmy Lai in accordance with the law, vigorously slandering the central government's Hong Kong policy and the Hong Kong National Security Law, and clamoring for sanctions against the central government and Hong Kong SAR officials, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region expressed strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition, pointing out that the relevant politicians tried in vain to shield anti-China and destabilizing elements in Hong Kong, grossly interfered in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs, Blatantly trampling on the basic norms governing international relations is unpopular and doomed to defeat.

The spokesman pointed out that Jimmy Lai is the main mastermind, participant, and behind-the-scenes promoter of the anti-China and destabilizing incident, and as an agent and pawn of foreign anti-China forces, he brazenly colludes with external forces to endanger national security, and is willing to act as a political tool for foreign forces to "use Hong Kong to contain China." Hong Kong is a society governed by the rule of law, where there are laws to be followed, law enforcement must be strict, and the Hong Kong judiciary has tried cases fairly, handled cases in accordance with the law, and handled cases reasonably and lawfully, which has won wide support and appreciation from the public. Some anti-China politicians and institutions have disregarded the facts, reversed black and white, and frequently used relevant cases to make statements, attack and smear Hong Kong's human rights and rule of law, and vainly attempt to incite containment and suppression of China.

The spokesman stressed that the rule of law is an important cornerstone of Hong Kong's long-term prosperity and stability. In the three years since the implementation of the National Security Law, Hong Kong society has returned to the right track, the political climate has taken on a new look, and the legitimate rights and freedoms of Hong Kong citizens have been better protected in a safer environment. The ghostly tricks of these anti-China politicians who are keen on playing political manipulation cannot change the international community's recognition and confidence in the progress of Hong Kong's rule of law, the rule of law environment and social order in Hong Kong, and our firm determination to safeguard "one country, two systems" and national security.

The spokesman reiterated that some Western politicians are "always opposed to China" and "will make trouble in Hong Kong", shouting respect for the spirit of the rule of law and judicial independence while doing despicable acts of interfering in Hong Kong's judicial fairness. We urge these anti-China politicians to recognize the reality, put themselves in a correct position, immediately stop their misconduct of harboring and beautifying anti-China and destabilizing elements in Hong Kong, and immediately dispel their bad attempts to interfere in China's internal affairs, otherwise they will surely destroy their image and bring humiliation on themselves.
