The Hong Kong Scots CIC, along with over ten former HK elected councillors, submitted a shadow report to the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights regarding the severe encroachment of the right under the National Security Law of HK imposed by Beijing.
The report mentioned that a Hong Kong asylum seeker in the UK, assisted by our group, had been suspended by his school on political grounds and was barred from entering his classroom.
The report also mentioned the landmark persecution of Sheep Village picture book publishers and the arbitrary and disproportionate restrictions on exercising the Covenant rights on the grounds of COVID restrictions.
Nevertheless, our organisation discovered that 15 Beijing-backed groups submitted their shadow report to the UN. Submissions made by these women’s groups, youth groups, and a parent-teacher association of a primary school are nothing but pro-Beijing businessmen and politicians.
All this propaganda praises the draconian National Security Law of Hong Kong, aiming to legitimise the encroachment of economic, social and cultural rights to which Hongkongers entitled under British rule.
The Hong Kong Scots CIC 連同10多位香港前民意代表，早前向 #聯合國 經濟、社會及文化權利委員會提交影子報告，提及香港在北京實施「港區國安法」下，港人之教育權利及參與文化生活權受到嚴重侵蝕。
