Petition Asking for Revocation of Citizenship of Carrie Lam’s Family Members Received Significant Support

Major Taiwanese news network Liberty Times Network (LTN) recently reported that an individual named Deeran Kumar submitted a petition on asking the government of the United Kingdom  to revoke the citizenship of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s husband and her two sons. The petition was filed after Carrie Lam used her executive power to introduce and enforce the anti-mask law against the pro-democracy protesters. The law bypassed the legislative process under the measure called the Emergency Regulations Ordinance (ERO). The petition declared that this event effectively put Hong Kong into a state of emergency. Thus “the rule of law is dead and it has become rule by law.” The petition said the British government has a moral responsibility to take action. As of November 2, the petition had received more than 100,000 signatures. According to British law, the UK government must respond to this petition. {Editor’s Note: As of November 9, the petition had received 160,000 signatures. The web address of the live petition is:}
