HONG KONG – The Security Bureau severely condemned on Wednesday the activists behind the creation of a so-called “Hong Kong Parliament” overseas.
A spokesman for the bureau said in a statement that it condemned Yuan Gong-yi, Ho Leung-mau and Leung Chung-hang and others for forming the so-called "parliament", adding that their action could be considered as a subversive act under the National Security Law for Hong Kong.

“Police shall spare no efforts in pursuing the cases in accordance with the law in order to bring the offenders to justice,” the statement reads.
The bureau appealed to members of the public to dissociate themselves from individuals contravening the NSL and their illegal activities to avoid any unnecessary legal risks.
According to local media reports, a committee was formed in Canada last month to establish the so-called “parliament”, with the group intending to hold “elections” in late 2023.
