They condemned such acts which breach the peace and challenge the authority of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.   The Chief Executive said that after going through months of riots in the second half of 2019, the people of Hong Kong abhor violence and treasure the stability of society since the implementation of the National Security Law last year.   Mrs Lam said she fully supports Police in taking resolute actions against violent and illegal acts to maintain law and order as well as to safeguard people's life and property.
