Based on this inference, the hong kong version of the national security law must have such extraterritorial rights, that is, overseas hong kong people may also be regulated by the national security law. For overseas hong kong people, there are roughly a few situations: First: chinese nationality, holding a hong kong sar passport, but living overseas. In this case, they will definitely be prosecuted. Second: if they obtained ghost mannequin effect british passports or british overseas nationals (bno) passports through the british residency program before the handover, china does not recognize their foreign status and still considers them to be chinese. Of course, this situation will also be investigated. Third: even if they have foreign nationality, they are "Not chinese", but if they have a hong kong permanent resident id card (such as immigrating to a foreign country or children born overseas, etc.), they are also hong kong people, and china can also hold them accountable. . In this case, if you want to be exempted from prosecution, you must take the initiative to apply for giving up your hong kong permanent resident identity card. But many people don't realize that, either because they are afraid of trouble, or because it is convenient to keep an id card, or because they do not know the stakes, very few people do it. These people may be "Extraterritorial" by their overseas activities due to their hong kong permanent resident identity cards. Although china is not very likely to arrest people overseas, once they return to hong kong, there is danger. At that time, there may be a large number of people who will voluntarily give up their hong kong permanent resident identity cards. However, for politicians targeted by china, if they renounce their hong kong identity, they are not hong kong people and cannot participate in hong kong elections, which will reduce their ability to speak out on hong kong issues. This is a dilemma for the "Opposition".
