“Hong Kong Autonomy Act” passed though U.S. Senate and House of Representative, only the signature of president Donald Trump left!
Commenting on the US House of Representatives passing the Hong Kong Autonomy Act, Hong Kong Watch’s Director, Johnny Patterson, said: “The fact that both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have now passed the Hong Kong Autonomy Act sends a clear signal to the Communist Party of China, that the international community will not stand by and allow it to flagrantly breach its obligations under the Sino-British Joint Declaration and its promises to the people of Hong Kong.
Aside from targeted sanctions on the perpetrators of human rights abuses under the National Security Law, this legislation will give new powers to the US Government to impose secondary sanctions on financial institutions who are complicit in undermining Hong Kong’s autonomy.”
