The house of representatives of the US Congress on July 1 passed a bill on sanctions against Chinese companies and citizens in connection with the restriction of Hong Kong's autonomy. This was reported by the Bloomberg News Agency on Thursday, July 2.
The bill provides for restrictive measures against banks that serve Chinese officials who participated in the adoption of the Hong Kong national security law.
The Standing Committee of the national people's Congress adopted the national security law in Hong Kong on June 30.
It is envisaged that the Central authorities of the PRC will create special state security bodies in the city, which will not be subject to the jurisdiction of the Hong Kong administration.
