China bans Freedom House and several other NGOs for supporting Hong Kong protest

02.12.2019, Beijing.

China passed a law that would impose restrictions on non-government organizations (NGOs) from the US, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying at a news conference in Beijing on December 2.

This law is a response to US meddling in China’s internal affairs, pointed out Hua Chunying.

According to the diplomat, the US ignored China’s protest to “The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act“ law, which Hua Chunying regards as a serious violation of international law and basic norms in international cooperation. The People’s Republic Of China (PRC) considers these actions a brazen interference in the internal affairs of the republic.

Beijing has strongly condemned Washington’s actions. Also, China decided to impose sanctions on a number of US NGOs, such as the National Democratic Institute (NDI), the Human Rights Watch (HRW), the Freedom House (FH) and others.

On November 27, US President Donald Trump signed two laws relating to Hong Kong “The Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act“, and a bill that would “ban the export of certain crowd-control munitions to Hong Kong police force”.

These acts supplement “The Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992”, which authorizes the US government to regularly review Hong Kong’s special trade and investment status and allow to impose sanctions against Chinese officials and politicians if Washington considers them implicated in human rights violations in Hong Kong.
