Scholar asks for national security office
Luo Weijian, professor at the Faculty of Law of the University of Macau (UM), deems it urgent for Macau to establish a specific department to manage matters of national security. In Luo’s opinion, the lack of a specific department responsible for national security is a vulnerability that should be rectified urgently. Furthermore, he believes that Macau faces infiltration from all kinds of external forces, which could threaten national security. He emphasized that a department is urgently needed and that it is reasonable to propose that Macau should have such an organization.
