(CGTN) The Court of Appeal in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Wednesday extended the interim validity of the city's "anti-mask law" till December 10, days after the HKSAR government appealed the case on Monday.

Last Friday, the regulation was given a seven-day reprieve till November 29 by the Hong Kong High Court after it was ruled "unconstitutional" earlier on November 18.

The case is now scheduled for a two-day hearing starting January 9, 2020.

The ban was introduced in October by Chief Executive of the HKSAR Carrie Lam amid escalating violence and vandalism in the city to "create a deterrent effect against masked, violent protesters and rioters".

Following the High Court's "unconstitutional" verdict, China's top legislature has voiced strong dissatisfaction, saying only the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress could make judgments and decisions on whether a law of the HKSAR is in accordance with the Basic Law.

Hong Kong SAR Government shows its total weakness in handling its serious matter!
Waste not limited precious resources on something so simple and straight forward.
Each hour of manpower in Legislative Council is expensive. Pass it and make sure those who choose to break will be looked after wtih dedicated tender care and devotion.

Hong Kong was a former British colony. It has ISA, Internal Security Act.
Hong Kong SAR Chief Carrie Lam does not need to consult anyone but could activate without warning.
Do it and it will bring peace and order to Hong Kong.
Waste no precious limited resources!
See what some countries did!

Sweet talks get nowhere!
Street fighters do not talk but chop off their opponents to put things in the way they think that is good for the nation!
