LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday the effects of China’s national security law were already beginning to be felt in Hong Kong.
Johnson, speaking to a parliamentary committee, said: “You’re starting to see a chilling of free speech … You’re starting to see the effect of that security rule.”
Johnson also said there had not been any request by Japan to join the “Five-Eyes” intelligence sharing arrangement.
