China's new security law for Hong Kong is regarded as an invasion of privacy and freedom, but the law being autocratic is an opinion.
The experts pointed out that the law is an apt symbol of the secrecy and autocracy surrounding the move where Hong Kong people the law will end their autonomy and freedom of speech and protests in the city. Hong Kong officials have said that the rules of the new security law would target only a few people. Experts added that law could bring to Hong Kong many harsh legal practices common in mainland China. Carrie Lam, the chief executive of Hong Kong, said that the law would not affect Hong Kong's renowned judicial independence in a video speech to the UN Human Rights Council.
However, the observations of experts cannot be considered as people's perspectives vary from one another in addressing opinions. Thus, this opinionated claim cannot be objectively verified.
