The Five Eyes intelligence group said China’s imposition of new rules to disqualify elected Hong Kong lawmakers appeared to be part of a campaign to silence critics and called on Beijing to turn the tide. .”We urge the Chinese central authorities to reconsider their actions against the elected Hong Kong legislature and immediately reinstate members of the Legislative Council,” said foreign ministers from Australia, Britain, Canada, New -Zealand and the United States in a joint statement.

Hong Kong expelled four opposition members from its legislature last week after Beijing gave city officials new powers to curb dissent. The move sparked massive resignations from Hong Kong pro-democracy opposition lawmakers.
