HONG KONG action star Jackie Chan is among the 2,605 artistes who support China’s national security law for Hong Kong, Sin Chew Daily reported.

Others included singer Alan Tam, veteran star Liza Wang, and actors Jordan Chan and Eric Tsang.

The list of celebrities supporting the legislation had led to much discussion among netizens.

Some of them wondered why the “Four Heavenly Kings” of Hong Kong – Jacky Cheung, Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok and Leon Lai – were not in the list.

China’s National People’s Congress approved the law on May 28.
