美眾議院議長:送中條例若通過,國會重新評估香港是否充分自主

美國國會眾議院議長佩洛西周二發表聲明,表示「支持充滿勇氣的香港示威者,挺身而出反對危險的引渡條例」。聲明全文如下:

所有熱愛自由人們的心靈,都被星期日走上街頭,和平要求權利、捍衛主權、譴責可怖引渡法案的一百萬香港人勇氣感動。

中國控制的立法會提出的引渡法案,令人心寒地顯示北京厚顏無恥踐踏法律的意願,以令香港巿民噤聲,窒息自由。這次立法將令綁架商人、書店售貨員、一切中國不同意的人變成合理合法,危害在港八萬五千名美國僑民的安全。正如創立香港民主黨的李柱銘最近寫道,引渡法案「威脅摧毀香港的自由社會」。

引渡法案危及二十年來茁壯成長的美國與香港的強大關係。如果通過,美國國會別無選擇,重新評估香港在「一國兩制」框架下是否「充分自主」。我們期待,在未來的日子,引入參議員盧比奧、麥高文主席、眾議員史密斯的一份新的跨黨派《香港人權及民主法案》。

眾議院與參議員麥康奈爾及政府,與所有譴責這份危險引渡立法的人站在一起。美國與香港人民站在一起。

The hearts of all freedom-loving people were moved by the courage of the one million men and women of Hong Kong who took to the streets on Sunday to peacefully demand their rights, defend their sovereignty and denounce this horrific extradition bill.

The China-controlled Legislative Council’s proposed extradition bill chillingly showcases Beijing’s brazen willingness to trample over the law to silence dissent and stifle the freedoms of the people of Hong Kong.  

This legislation would legitimize and legalize the kidnapping of businessmen, booksellers and anyone that China disagrees with, and imperils the safety of the 85,000 Americans living in Hong Kong.  As Martin Lee, the founder of Hong Kong’s Democratic Party, recently wrote, this bill ‘threatens to destroy Hong Kong’s free society.’

The extradition bill imperils the strong U.S.-Hong Kong relationship that has flourished for two decades. If it passes, the Congress has no choice but to reassess whether Hong Kong is ‘sufficiently autonomous’ under the ‘one country, two systems’ framework.  We look forward to the introduction of a new bipartisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act in the coming days by Senator Rubio, Chairman Jim McGovern and Congressman Chris Smith.

The House stands united with Senator McConnell, the Administration and all who have denounced this dangerous extradition legislation.  America stands with the people of Hong Kong.
