Hong Kong lawmakers approve national anthem bill that makes it illegal to insult China's national anthem

Pro-democracy legislator Ted Hui is removed by security guards after throwing a jar containing foul-smelling liquid onto the floor during a debate on a law that bans insulting China's national anthem in Hong Kong on June 4, 2020.

The pro-Beijing majority said the law was necessary for Hong Kong citizens to show appropriate respect for the anthem.Those found guilty of intentionally abusing the “March of the Volunteers” face up to three years in prison and a fine of up to 50,000 Hong Kong dollars . When security guards tried to stop him, he dropped the lantern and the pot, and was ejected from the meeting. Another lawmaker who accompanied him was also ejected.When the meeting resumed, anti-Beijing lawmaker Ted Hui again splashed some liquid at the front of the meeting room and was escorted out. Legislative Council President Andrew Leung called such behaviour irresponsible and childish, before calling for the vote.

HSBC said in a Chinese social media post that it “respects and supports all laws that stabilize Hong Kong’s social order”, while Standard Chartered said it believed the national security law would “help maintain the long-term economic and social stability of Hong Kong.”
