HONG KONG, July 22 -- The Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) will as always firmly fulfill its duties as empowered by the central government and support the HKSAR government in its effective administration in accordance of the law.

Wang Zhimin, director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR, made the remarks when meeting the press on Monday.

He condemned in the strongest terms radical demonstrators' vicious acts of besieging the liaison office building and insulting the country on Sunday night, which constitute a blatant challenge to the authority of China's Constitution and the Basic Law of the HKSAR, the authority of the central government as well as the symbol of national sovereignty and security.

Some violent demonstrations over the past period of time in Hong Kong have gone beyond the scope of peaceful demonstrations, posing a blatant challenge to the bottom line of the rule of law in Hong Kong, said Wang.

He said that the acts of some radical demonstrators last night have not only seriously undermined the spirit of Hong Kong's rule of law and the fundamental welfare and interests of Hong Kong citizens, but also hurt the feelings of all Chinese people including over 7 million Hong Kong compatriots.

The liaison office believes that the HKSAR government, police and other law enforcement agencies will conduct thorough investigations and seriously punish offenders in accordance with law.

Noting that many Hong Kong citizens have expressed their worries and indignation over the recent chaotic situation in Hong Kong, Wang expressed the belief that all sectors of society in Hong Kong will absolutely not approve of the continuation of such chaos.
