HAVE TO LEAVE. Paul Harris first reveals the reason for being interviewed under caution by HK’s national security police.

The Hong Kong 47 case has proceeded to the mitigation stage. Paul Harris, the former chairman of the Hong Kong Bar Association, once represented Helena Wong and Lam Cheuk Ting, two of the defendants in the case. He was interviewed under caution by the national security police 2.5 years ago and left Hong Kong abruptly the same night. What happened then? Paul Harris was interviewed by Green Bean Media in London, United Kingdom.

Paul Harris was condemned by the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office of the State Council and the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in Hong Kong as an ‘anti-China politician’ after he criticised some provisions of Hong Kong’s National Security Law as being in breach of the Basic Law. He is a member of the UK Liberal Democrats and is standing against five other candidates in the Aldershot constituency in July’s general election. What are his views on the rule of law in Hong Kong and the policies of British political parties towards Hong Kong?
