Government slams UK government report on compliance with handover deal

  • A biannual UK government report criticised the Hong Kong administration and Beijing for the declining human rights and freedoms in the city.
  • There was “no doubt” that Beijing was “failing to comply” with the joint declaration, which was signed in 1984, according to the British government.
  • The UK government said it would “work constructively” with Chief Executive John Lee where possible, but “will judge the Hong Kong government based on its actions.”
  • The Hong Kong government has said it “vehemently refutes the slandering remarks and ill-intentioned political attacks” made in the report.
