HONG KONG—Hong Kong will not interfere in mainland China’s detention of 12 Hong Kong people who were arrested at sea for allegedly crossing the border illegally, reportedly in an attempt to flee to Taiwan, the city’s security chief said Monday.
“The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government does not want foreign jurisdictions to interfere with [our] law enforcement, therefore [we] respect and will not interfere with other jurisdictions’ law enforcement,” Security Secretary John Lee said in a statement.
