The logic of this is that the BBC is free to say anything it wishes on its own news reports in Britain. Otherwise your view would argue that China should be able to control the agenda and style of reportage of news coverage in another country. You can't have your cake and eat it too: if BJ insists that HK is purely a domestic matter then the BBC can likewise insist that there is no interference in its own reportage of the news in its own home base.

China is only calling out a lie and a bias but has not indicated that BBC should shut up. Refuting a lie is a right of anyone inorder to stop it from spreading. Refuting a lie is within the "freedom of expression" and is not against it.
