10:03 am
saying that these fears are groundless what makes hong kong hong kong what makes a different to any other province in china those things will remain the same the judiciary will be independent and that it will only target a handful of what you called law breakers that the majority she said of peace loving hong kong citizens will not be effective now this of course follows the announcement of this national security law by beijing last thursday it 1st came to light that they were discussing this and this bans secession treason and subversion as beijing sees it and many politicians in hong kong are furious about this as saying that this is the death knell of the one country 2 systems policy this is indeed the biggest challenge to hong kong's autonomy that beijing has launched since the hand over the british colony in 1997 and it has brought back some of those fears protests that we were seeing preplanned demick with some scuffles between police and protesters on the weekends and tear gas being thrown some of the
10:04 am
details that kerry did seem to message to indicate in her press conference she said that the law would not be applied retroactively she said that those assumptions were imagined imagination so they cannot take this law and then arrest protests for protests or activities that happened previously so that's some relief but then she did also say that hong kong rights and freedoms are not absolute so that is quite telling that things will change and we suspect that this law may mean that no. for chinese security agencies chinese intelligence agencies will expand their presence in hong kong so they'll be able to do much more there and also potentially take people back to the mainland for questioning so we expect to hear more details about that law once china's national people's congress wraps up later this week on this day thank you very much for that katrina you live for us there in beijing. and china is preparing to repat treat its citizens in india ask corona virus infections

you're watching al-jazeera live from doha a reminder of our top stories this hour china is preparing to repatriate its citizens in india as corona virus infections there buys the chinese embassy in new delhi notified nationals of the plan on monday they have until wednesday to register to me and hong kong's leader carry naam has defended beijing interpose new security laws she says an education want to impact hong kong's rise in freedoms and that fear is people will be arrested for speaking out are imagine. let's speak to claudia more about this she is a journalist and politician a democratic legislature in hong kong joins us via skype thank you very much for being with us claudia so let me ask you 1st how you know you view this message from carry lamb she is trying to be reassuring well this speech perceived as reassuring
10:15 am
by hong kong residents. in the reassuring ships i'm afraid carrie learn has completely lost trust amongst the hong kong people of course she would need to be send what beijing wants to do with hong kong that she's doing it beijing's. beijing being her the real boss not the hong kong people now who actually say today attack the foreign politicians who adopting double standard because they too in western societies and countries have national security laws so what's the problem she wouldn't say. that in say a proper a morton western society there are proper saturation of how worse with checks and balances and they have grown fast press and on lying
10:16 am
the internet to discussions the she will issue with all of that and say you have got it too so what's wrong with us now getting one right calling they are not a national security law. yet the truth is that we really don't know much about these laws yet there are a lot of details that are still being ironed out it would seem in beijing she said kerry ma'am that this law would only target a handful of lawbreakers that it protects the vast majority of law abiding peace loving residents in hong kong her words. but again we don't know the details there are a lot of things that we still don't know and the process says well do you expect the people of hong kong to have a say in it any of it. no not nothing i mean kerry lamb i would say all is well all is wonderful on behalf of on calm and that's about it
10:17 am
i'm afraid but that's been as i was going to say as she was going into lecture lee dishonest oh she was saying that only a handful would be affected well i mean hong kong has a population of 7500000 people and our n.t. government protests this sense last june almost a year now they've arrested that that was no more than 10000 feet so if you look at the numbers. the arrestees are a very small number but that's not the wind the point is they are claiming a genius claiming complete jurisdiction over hong kong and they can do whatever they want because beijing has now realised that too many gaping homes and their version of the one country 2 systems in hong kong the hong kong story the homes
10:18 am
being that hong kong people it turns out actually enjoy freedoms and rights to protest to criticise to complain to want some change and they think in beijing they think they've had enough of this and they're cracking down on us so how how then will hong kong residents and you know will respond to this how much bigger do you anticipate the anti-government protests that we've seen in the last year will geddes as a result of this. no that's the fairy hawk breaking trend in hong kong technically we can say no to anything because if you say oh this new low there is a technically an constitutional that's what some of our legal experts here are saying but then it's a chain itself though that is the constitution so what are you challenging then who are you trying to challenge right and we kneel taking to the streets and seeing the
10:19 am
young getting getting all beaten up and and arrested for that sort of protest just may not be very sustainable but then the young are fighting for their future it's a van field and people in my generation and each and. what we could we should truth at least and show some i'm a standing right and so we're going to have a very i'm settling a thank you so much for talking to us about this and giving us your reaction claudia mole joining us and politician joining us advised i thank you for your thoughts. now the polls have closed in the south american nation and results could mean the difference between 5 more years in office for the president or possibly prison busy protests he was convicted of murder last year in connection with 1982 killings if it is on its money or up and over. voters
