Citing the stories from the Chinese media outlets, RTHK and the South China Morning Post (SCMP) on Wednesday, Reuters reports that Beijing has widened the scope of draft national security legislation for Hong Kong, in a bid to include organizations as well as individuals.

The Chinese media reported, “the law was being revised to cover not just behavior or acts that endanger national security, but also activities.”

RTHK said: “Mainland lawyers who have handled national security cases in the past say this change could bring not just individuals, but also organizations under the scope of the law.”
