Anjani Trivedi’s articles “Hong Kong Chooses Fear Over Living With Covid” (17 August 2021) and “Hong Kong's Covid Policies Are Borderline Reckless” (18 August 2021) misrepresented Hong Kong’s anti-epidemic efforts. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government makes the following points. Details here.

Your story “A man stabbed a police officer. Now people are calling him a hero” contains biased and misleading comments about a tragic incident that should be roundly condemned by all who value the rule of law. The man who stabbed the police officer is definitely not a hero and should not be represented as such. Details here.

Re: Your online article “HKEX is key to China’s plan to internationalise its economy” (May 28). It is totally inaccurate and misleading to insinuate that the Law on Safeguarding National Security in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), somehow creates “uncertainty” or that our cherished fundamental strengths are being “dismantled”. Details here.

Your articles “Hong Kong Lawmakers Set to Pass Beijing-Drafted Election Revamp” (May 26) and “Hong Kong Passes Xi Plan to End Only Open Elections in China” (May 27) have falsely suggested that the legislative amendments to improve the electoral system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) aim at “curtailing the ability of dissenting voices to participate in government”. Details here.

Your editorial "No Escape from Hong Kong" (April 28), is wildly inaccurate. It is wrong to imply that the Immigration (Amendment) Bill 2020 will "block people from leaving" Hong Kong or to suggest broad extraterritorial reach. Details here.

 
To: Wall Street Journal
