Bill Barr: China’s Arrests Of Hong Kong Protesters Violate Rule Of Law

Attorney General William Barr used strong language to criticize the actions of the Chinese government after the communist regime arrested several pro-democracy protesters who participated in the mass events of last year.

Barr expressed his frustration after the Chinese Communist Party arrested 15 people “in an effort to continue to crack down on anti-authoritarian thought.”

“I condemn the latest assault on the rule of law and the liberty of the people of Hong Kong,” Barr said. “These events show how antithetical the values of the Chinese Communist Party are to those we share in Western liberal democracies. These actions — along with its malign influence activity and industrial espionage here in the United States — demonstrate once again that the Chinese Communist Party cannot be trusted.”

One of the people arrested is Avery Ng. Ng said in an interview over the weekend that “This is all happening while we are in midst of a pandemic” and that “the world is dealing with this virus, but this signals that Beijing still sees a political crackdown in Hong Kong is a top priority.”

According to Washington Examiner, last years’ protests were the “broadest civil unrest under Chinese rule since China assumed sovereignty over the former colony in 1997.” China’s ruling regime is still seeking revenge for the perceived act of rebellion and the negative attention the protests brought on their government.

China’s official response rejected the narrative and framed their actions as a reasonable response to “trouble makers” and called on their critics to condemn the pro-freedom protesters.

“The Office of the Commissioner of the Chinese Foreign Ministry in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Sunday refuted U.S. politicians who openly attempted to exonerate anti-China troublemakers in Hong Kong,” reportd the Chinese Communist Party-run outlet Xinhua News. “It serves as another evidence of their collusion with the local troublemakers, which deserves condemnation by the entire international community.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was not convinced.

“The United States condemns the arrest of pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong,” Pompeo said in an official statement. “Beijing and its representatives in Hong Kong continue to take actions inconsistent with commitments made under the Sino-British Joint Declaration that include transparency, the rule of law, and guarantees that Hong Kong will continue to “enjoy a high degree of autonomy.”
