The National Security Law (NSL) that came into effect on 30 June 2020 has undoubtedly casted deep impacts on the legal, social, economic, political and other systems of Hong Kong. In a nutshell, the 66-article law criminalizes four types of acts: secession, subversion, terrorism, and collusion with a foreign country or external elements to endanger national security.
