Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai charged under security law
"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that.

She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming.

She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance.
