Hong Kong China legal, political changes.

Recommended Posts

The change this week in Hong Kong, with direct jurisdiction by the CCP/Beijing government and the override of the "Two Systems" agreement by security laws and mainland police presence seems to require review of whether users can have confidence of privacy or security when using HK servers.
One reference of the impact and scope and implications is this Australian newspaper article:
https://www.smh.com.au/world/asia/hong-kong-s-new-national-security-laws-reach-beyond-china-20200701-p557zd.html

Although it is undesirable to follow the Trumpist/US MIC with various anti-China propaganda, it should be recognised that although China is increasingly powerful and aggressive, the rest of Asia is a considerable counterweight (Japan, S Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Australia, India, etc) and European organisations such as AirVPN have alternatives.
Perhaps Taiwan can be a replacement for CCP HK, or more servers in Japan and Singapore, or perhaps give Indonesia a bit more modern industry ?

I would agree that the recent changes override the HK sovereignty as we know it. Reading about the system, the orders under the new act is also out of the HK judicial process (Excludes the nominal non-chinese judges). I would believe that HK is very much over-ruled and need not be considered separate for our purposes.

The Hong Kong police has now full authority to search, monitor and intercept communications without any judicial supervision. That definitely needs to be addressed rapidly.

Done. If you have any comments, direct them at the announcement thread.
