US IMPOSES VISA RESTRICTIONS ON CHINESE OFFICIALS OVER HONG KONG

A news release from the US State Department on 26 June announced visa restrictions on current and former Chinese Communist Party officials who are believed to be responsible for, or complicit in, undermining Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy, as guaranteed in the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration, or undermining human rights and fundamental freedoms in Hong Kong.  Family members of such persons may also be subject to these restrictions. No names have been released.
