US preparing new sanctions on Chinese officials over Hong Kong

The United States is gearing up to impose sanctions on a number of Chinese officials for what Washington claims to be their role in Beijing’s disqualification of elected opposition legislators in Hong Kong.

Last month, Hong Kong disqualified four opposition lawmakers after the Chinese parliament adopted a resolution authorizing the city to expel legislators deemed dangerous to national security.

Alvin Yeung Ngok-kiu, Kwok Ka-ki, Kenneth Leung, and Dennis Kwok were disqualified from continuing in their capacity as city legislators, shortly after China’s parliament had allowed authorities to unseat those lawmakers who seek secession or invite foreign interference.
