Hong Kong has been subtly tweaking the way it describes its national security law in a way that could point to broader crackdowns, Bloomberg reports. Authorities in Hong Kong have recently started using the phrase "contrary to the interests of national security" to describe violations of its national security law after previously warning against anything that would "​​endanger national security," according to Bloomberg. Joseph Cheng, an activist and retired political science professor, explained to Bloomberg that this could point to an expanded application of the law.
