HONG KONG -- Chinese banks and brokerages are asking Hong Kong staff to sign a petition supporting national security legislation set to pass the National People's Congress on Thursday, the Nikkei Asian Review has learned.

The demand reflects the growing pressure faced by employees of scores of Chinese banks and brokerages after Beijing's move to enforce its rule over the semiautonomous territory.
