Taiwan provides humanitarian support to Hong Kong residents who will be prosecuted under the new national security law

Taiwan has come up with a plan to offer humanitarian support to Hong Kong residents who will be prosecuted at home for their participation in the anti-government protest.

The Taiwan – Hong Kong Service and Exchange Office, which would be financially supported by the central government and opened on July 1, would be established to provide humanitarian assistance and care for Hongkongers individually with help of current law in Taiwan. The office will cooperate with human rights and civil groups to assist asylum seekers with residency, settlement, employment and protection issues. Anyone going to Taiwan for political factors would be additionally got the basic living allowance. The move is to show support to Hong Kong people instead of rescuing them, according to Taiwan officials.

National security law would be imposed later, combating outlaw acts and activities of secession, subversion, terrorism and foreign interference in the city.
