Leung Chun-ying, the third Chief Executive of Hong Kong between 2012 and 2017, threatens in a Facebook posting that both US President Trump and British Prime Minister Johnson should be held legally accountable according to the National Security Law if they take hostile actions against China and Hong Kong.
Translation of Mr. Leung’s Facebook posting:
Law professor lacks common sense.
RTHK reports: (legal scholar) Johannes Chan from the University of Hong Kong said that the national security law in Hong Kong also applies to crimes committed by non-Hong Kong residents living outside of Hong Kong according to its Article 38. He thinks that the scope of the law covers the whole world, affecting people outside of Hong Kong.
“If US President Trump colludes with US Prime Minister Johnson to take hostile actions against China and Hong Kong, they are legally accountable in theory, except that they are now protected by diplomatic immunity.”
Johannes Chan made a low-level mistake by using this example. Diplomatic immunity is for diplomats. US president and UK prime minister are not diplomats.
Iran issued an arrest warrant for Trump
The threatens from Leung Chun-ying is not an isolated case. Iran recently issued an arrest warrant for President Trump and a dozen others for taking out Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad.
