Professor Liao Fan: Hong Kong people have really enjoyed freedom and democracy only after 1997

Professor Liao Fan, a research fellow at CASS Institute of International Law, was interview by CGTN on the objective evaluation of democracy and freedom in Hong Kong on July 4, 2019. In the interview, he pointed out that residents of Hong Kong enjoyed no freedom or democracy whatsoever before Hong Kong’s return to China: they did not elect government or have the right to protest. It was only after 1997 that Hong Kong people have really enjoyed freedom and democracy. The protects in Hong Kong should not go beyond the law.
