PRC Official Zhang Xiaoming: Chanting about 831 Incident Violates National Security Law


According to the Hong Kong National Security Act, inciting subversion of state power counts as obstructing the government from performing their duties, and such actions are against the law.

Zhang Xiaoming, Deputy Director of the Hong Kong And Macau Affairs Office Of The State Council, claimed that spreading rumours about protestors being beaten to death on August 31st at Prince Edward Station might be in itself a violation of the National Security Act.

However, he did not explain whether talking about police brutality is prohibited, as the act did not explicitely define what actions are considered to incite hatred.
