林鄭:廿三條立法不損言論及集會自由 港獨倡議者亦將受保障

2017/7/27 — 21:30

特首林鄭月娥接受 CNN 訪問稱,自己並不著急就《基本法》23 條立法,但指有關立法不會損害香港的言論及集會自由。被問到港府會否保障港獨倡議者的相關自由,林鄭表示會,強調基本法亦列明會保障自由及人權,她不會推進違反《基本法》的立法工作。

She said that when laws are put in place to guard against treason, secession and sedition, such legislation will not undermine the city’s core values of freedom of speech and assembly.

Asked if even independence-advocates would be afforded such protection, Lam answered “I have to because that freedom and human rights and so on, are also enshrined in the Basic Law. To do one thing in accordance with the Basic Law but then running the risk of breaching another provision in the Basic Law is not something that I would go for.”

她又在訪問中指,自己過往從未真正認識到香港的年輕人對未來到底有多絕望,直到特首選舉期間與年輕人、年輕專業人士接觸,才明白他們絕望之深,並為自己對其困境的無知感到遺憾。她形容,年輕一代的絕望會對香港造成傷害。

林鄭又承認,港府過往過份著重金融業,對其他產業構成損害,包括那些能為年輕世代提供發展機會的產業。她並在訪問中承諾,會尋求方法,為市民提供可負擔的房屋。
