On the same day that protestors took to the streets of Hong Kong and a second reading of the Hong Kong bill was stalled, Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, said it is “undeniable that this law is controversial.”

In an interview with Hong Kong’s TVB, Lam conceded that “whether to set up this law or not for the good of Hong Kong, our view is like this: It is undeniable the law is controversial, allowing more explanations and discussions will be helpful, but it will not eliminate worries and controversies concerning the law completely.”

When asked about the protests, Lam said:

“I am worried that youngsters are engaged in this. I am sad to see many have joined this because Hong Kong has always been a calm and sensible society.”

“They say I sold out Hong Kong, how could I?” she added. “I am born here and I live here with everyone I have sacrificed myself to Hong Kong.”
