    Hmmm interesting
    I thought, to do that, China would have to declare a state of emergency and by doing so, would probably shatter taith in the 'one country two systems'otherwise it would be at the request of the HK government which I think would be its preference.
    Thats how Western newsprint present China's options anywayand you have to admit that they are so much better in selling their viewpoint to the world.

    now this is significant, I think (it provides another legal interpretation, to the extent I understand while drinking my early morning coffee):
    NPC spokesperson expresses deep concern over HK court ruling

    ... and now got to Glob. Times:
    China's top legislature slams HK court ruling; remarks seen as 'fundamental denial' to HK court's decision on issues of constitutionality http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1170495.shtml

    plus, inside Are Hong Kong’s courts protecting rioters? http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1170446.shtml, they claim
    "The concept of Hong Kong's rule of law is broken."

    Congress did the right thing here.

    A group of non-Chinese lawyers “ruling” to interprete the Chinese constitution is in itself unconstitutional. They do not have the expertise, nor the authority.

    The judges should be investigated for unconstitutional behavior.

    No other authority has right to make judgments: China slams Hong Kong court’s ruling on anti-mask law as unconstitutional
    • China’s top legislative affairs body says only Beijing has right to decide on issues of constitutionality after High Court rules mask ban contravenes Basic Law
    • Analysts say Beijing is likely to intervene, with one adding it is expected to ‘act very soon’
    follow the link https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong...ng-judges-slammed-chinas-top-legislative-body if interested, I don't know what to add except I drink my after-dinner coffee (the article is full of legalese)


    speaking of legal issues, now I see
    Pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong banned by Hong Kong court from travelling to London to receive human rights award from British parliament
    • Judge cites heightened risk of absconding, with Wong facing incitement charge
    • Party Demosisto slams decision, saying court is bowing to pressure from Beijing

    That is how the west wanted everyone to think.
    INFORMATION NOTE by Hong Kong Legislative Council Secretariat
    This chapter 3 is only about PLA Garrison, but the bold texts in sub-chapter (b) basically made it clear that Central Government can apply any national law in Hong Kong as it sees fit without breaking the "one country two systems" arrangement.

    Also, if the central government wanted to intervene, Hong Kong chief executive WILL initiate the "ask" in sub chapter (a) because he/she is appointed by central government, not elected by Hong Kong legislative council which only propose/nominate. To be bluntly clear, the chief executive is the governor sent from Beijing to rule Hong Kong, not whom the west and some Hong Kong people want to imagine.

    It is a good thing that the Hong Kong high court "ruled" against the "mask ban".

    Firstly, it has broken the basic law and the constitution, there is nothing better than this to be the reason for NPC to expel any such law-breaking judges.

    Secondly and more importantly, NPC can use this as the reason to impose regulations regarding qualifications of Judges in Hong Kong legal system, from the High Court all the way to the district court, and plus the court of final appeal.

    Rejoyce guys! Just heard on CGTN the thugs is surrounded with no way out!

    I know some of us here, me include thinks HK Police dropped the ball by no going in the Chinese university earlier, and as the consequence the thugs left the Chinese university all wrecked, and re-group at the polytechnic university, which is situated within blocking distance of the important cross chanel tunnel.

    Now with hindsight, it was a great move by the HK police. As I've mentioned that the Chinese university sit in the middle of nowhere, and its very porous. Whereas tge polytechnic university though in the city centre, its access is easily blocked off.

    Now, with most of thugs arrested, with just a few die-hard still inside. Even the "voluntary medic" just announced they are leaving to the press (all bar one in face maked)! Lol. The only thing is the HK police announced no one is to leave except through them so they can check legitimacy of those leaving! Quite right too, as we all know, the thugs have always masquerading as "press and medics"!

    Thus video showed some trying to get out by "surrender", and expect non-checking in return, the police wont have any of it! Yes!
