Four editors of Apple Daily were arrested in Hong Kong, accused of conspiracy.

Date:

Hong Kong police have accused four editors of Apple Daily of a foreign conspiracy. Chinese administration continues to harass Hong Kong’s pro-democracy activists.

Hong Kong police have accused four editors of Daily Apple of foreign collusion. Three of the four editors were arrested a few weeks ago. A former editor has been arrested on Wednesday. The court has refused bail to all four editors. 

Among them is Former Apple Daily Executive Editor-in-Chief Lam Man Chung. He was arrested on Wednesday. The four are accused of endangering national security by meeting abroad under the National Security Act.

Apple Daily after Jimmy Lai:

Jimmy Lai, the founder of Apple Daily newspaper, also known as one of the most credible voices of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, is already in jail. The police have registered a case against him for spreading hatred against the administration, judiciary, publication of seditious material, and inciting the public against the government. His property has also been seized. That’s why Apple Daily had to shut down a few weeks ago. 

The last edition of Apple Daily was published only last month. In the same edition, the newspaper reported that they had been forced to stop publishing the newspaper by pressurizing them. The last newspaper’s edition contained a photograph of an employee waving at the fans, titled “Hong Kongers bid a painful farewell in the rain: ‘We support Apple Daily.”

21 countries, including the US, protest against the ban on Apple Daily:

More than 20 countries have expressed concern against the forcible and unlawful closure of Hong Kong’s Apple Daily newspaper and the newspaper employees’ arrests. A statement issued by the governments of 21 countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Iceland, and the UK involved in the Media Freedom Cooperation, strongly criticized the action.
