Hong Kong - The Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) has expressed strong disapproval and firm opposition against some US politicians' interference in Hong Kong affairs and Chinese domestic affairs.
The US congressmen involved had carried out anti-China activities for a long time, said the Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the HKSAR
The commissioner's office issued a statement Friday night in response to some US congressmen's irresponsible remarks on Hong Kong police's legal action against Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, widely known as one of the "black hands" behind Hong Kong's months-long unrest.
The US congressmen involved had carried out anti-China activities for a long time and colluded with the city's anti-China plotters who messed up Hong Kong, according to the statement.
The congressmen involved shielded Hong Kong troublemakers, whitewashed their illegal actions, wantonly interfered in the rule of law and judicial independence in Hong Kong, and slandered the central government's Hong Kong policy, it said.

The statement stressed that Hong Kong is a part of China, and the rule of law is valued here. Noting that all people are equal before the law and nobody has the right to stand above the law, the statement urged foreign forces to stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and Chinese domestic affairs, which will only get them to pay the price.
