Letters | Hong Kong needs judicial reform to survive and get back on track
- Beijing wouldn’t have to get Hong Kong in order if the city could take care of itself, instead of being caught up in livelihood-unrelated politics
- Judicial reform is necessary to counterbalance social disturbances and put the city back on the right track

Hong Kong’s national security law is like ‘anti-virus software’, top Beijing official says
This systemic failure has impeded the city’s development, as this once-prosperous metropolis is now lagging behind its counterparts and getting caught up in livelihood-unrelated politics that cannot feed citizens. Judicial reform is necessary to counterbalance these social disturbances and put the city back on the right track.
Hong Kong is a part of China; the central government can interpret the Basic Law and call for judicial reform. This move might not be the best one due to its controversial nature but, as the city has been unable to plug the legal loopholes on its own and time is running out before it is swept by more violence, perhaps even dragging the national economy into the mire, this, unfortunately, is the most effective and efficient way available at the moment.
