A proposed national security law for Hong Kong leaves its clergy concerned over the potential loss of freedom.
The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, the legislative body in China, is still finalizing the details of the law.
If the proposal becomes law, secession, subversion, and collaborating with foreign forces, would all be classed as criminal acts.
The proposed law would mean Hong Kong clergy who have been supportive of Hong Kong’s democracy movement could be extradited to mainland China to be tried.
The intended law would also give the country’s chief official the ability to assign specific judges to hear security cases.
CBN News reports if the law goes into effect, Hong Kong could see a resurgence of the massive protests that began last year and descended into violence between police and protesters.

Update 1450 AEST, 30/06/2020: Hong Kong media is reporting that the controversial law has passed.
