Human rights group concerned autonomy being compromised New York-based Human Rights Watch is concerned that Hong Kong's autonomy is being eroded because of interference by Beijing. Its annual World Report refers to the Immigration Department's refusal to allow activists critical of Beijing's human rights record to enter Hong Kong ahead of the Beijing Olympics. It also notes that the Hong Kong government has repeatedly stated it has a clear timetable to move towards election by universal suffrage of the chief executive in 2017 and the entire Legislative Council in 2020. A government spokesman said the Immigration Department had the responsibility to uphold effective immigration control and the power to refuse entry where necessary to ensure the public interest. A Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau spokesman said the aim of the government to determine the two electoral methods for 2012 within its tenure had not changed, and could lay a solid foundation for attaining universal suffrage in 2017 and 2020.
