Economic Turmoil in Hong Kong Escalates as Colonial-Era Law Is Imposed






Colonial-era law has been imposed in Hong Kong causing the economic situation to degrade further, with empty ATMs and bank runs becoming a new norm. Protestors and non-protestors alike fear the martial law-like ERO (Emergency Regulations Ordinance) could eventually grind the city’s financial activity to an unprecedented halt.

Imposition of Martial Law
The ERO imposed as of October 4 is not viewed as martial law by the Hong Kong government, but chief executive Carrie Lam’s declaration that the city is “not in a state of emergency” seems outlandish given the circumstances. The Hong Kong Free Press asserts:
The ERO is a colonial-era law that gives the chief executive unlimited power in the event of an “emergency or public danger.” The ERO, introduced in 1922, has not been used since the 1967 leftist riots.
Ben Song, an activist from Dallas, Texas, attending protests in the city, told news.Bitcoin.com via text message that “The ERO invoked recently to create the Anti-Mask Ban was a major turning point. The system has been eliminated and people are responding en masse.”
Though the extradition bill that had originally sparked protests was announced as withdrawn on September 4, important core demands of protestors were still not met. For example, greater independent investigation of police was one of the five core demands, which Lam struck down, affirming that the current Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) was sufficient. Activist Joshua Wong summarized protestor’s frustrations with the incomplete address of grievances in a tweet claiming that “Carrie Lam’s repeated failure in understanding the situation has made this announcement completely out of touch.”
Bank runs all over Hong Kong now. ATM machines running out of cash but there is something more important…failed leader carrie lam(b) can now officially confiscate bank accounts and assets without recourse. The HK legal system is essentially gone. #Bankruns #HKexit https://t.co/jz9sPrA30U

Bank Runs, Empty ATMs and Financial Chaos
Song affirmed to news.Bitcoin.com that “The economic state of the city is grim,” adding that “With everything shut down any economic activity is running at a snails pace.” Kyle Bass, Chief Investment Officer at Hayman Capital, echoes the assessment, tweeting on October 5 that under the ERO Carrie Lam basically has carte blanche to confiscate and freeze financial assets at will. Bass proclaimed: “The HK legal system is essentially gone.” Hong Kong dollar investments are said to be rapidly liquidating against the chaotic backdrop as well, with Song conveying to news.Bitcoin.com:
People are selling HKD investments like crazy. The HKD is fast approaching the 7.85 peg, after which the Hong Kong Monetary Authority will need to take ...
