Foreign Ministry Spokesperson's Remarks on the Violation of the Public Security Administration Punishments Law of the PRC by an Employee of the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong
2019/08/21

Q: An employee of the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong was suspectedly detained in China's mainland. His family said in a statement today that this case should be handled by the Public Security Bureau of Shenzhen, but they haven't received any notice of administrative detention and don't know his whereabouts or whether he would meet a lawyer. Could you give us more information?

A: Many journalists asked about this issue yesterday. To be frank, this is not a diplomatic matter. But since you are so interested in it, we have spared no effort to gather information for you from the relevant authority.

According to what we've learned so far, as punished by the Shenzhen police, this person you mentioned is placed under a 15-day administrative detention for violating the Public Security Administration Punishments Law of the PRC.

Q: A follow-up on the employee of the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong. The UK said in a statement yesterday that it has expressed serious concerns to the Chinese side and hopes China will provide assistance to the family. What's your response? What is the specific provision he violated?

A: Like I said, this is not a diplomatic matter. But since you are all interested in it, we have tried to gather some information from relevant authority. If you still want to know more specifics, I would like to refer you to the competent authority.

Regarding the British remarks you mentioned, I can tell you clearly that we have lodged stern representations with the UK on multiple occasions concerning its words and deeds on Hong Kong-related issues. We've asked them to stop making irresponsible remarks and interfering in China's Hong Kong affairs. The UK knows that clearly.
