The Rights Practice responded in good faith to the consultation on planned Article 23 legislation. We are, therefore, very disappointed to see the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government accuse nine overseas groups that made submissions of being "external anti-China organisations". Our submission was informed by Hong Kong’s human rights obligations under the Basic Law and the Bill of Rights Ordinance.
