The Security Bureau said on Wednesday that police have provided additional information to support their proposal to shut down the pro-independence Hong Kong National Party.

The recommendation was made by an Assistant Societies Officer to the Secretary for Security last month.

Authorities have said the party is a threat to national security.

In a statement, a government spokesman said the Secretary for Security has written to the lawyers of the party's convenor, Chan Ho-tin, and provided him with the additional information.

The party is required to state its case before September 11.
