HONG KONG: Australian Department of Foreign Affairs wrans ‘reconsider your need to remain’

With the new draconian security laws, China has enacted in Hong Kong, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trace (DFAT) is warning its citizens that this means an ‘increased risk of detention on vaguely defined national security grounds’.

DFAT has updated travel advice today (Thursday 9 July) advising that the new laws ‘could be interpreted broadly’.

‘Under the law, you could be deported or face possible transfer to mainland China for prosecution under mainland law’. advice

So, let me sum that up for you – Do Not Travel to Hong Kong. If you are already there, you better behave yourself, or probably better still – Get Out!

‘The full extent of the law and how it will be applied is not yet clear. ‘

‘You could break the law without intending to. If you’re concerned about the new law, reconsider your need to remain in Hong Kong’ advice

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Find. Next. Flight. Out.
