Hong Kong media tycoon arrested, newspaper raided

Published on August 10, 2020 by

Hong Kong media tycoon, Jimmy Lai, has been detained, one of seven people arrested under the new, Beijing-imposed national security law.
Lai is the most high-profile individual arrested yet under the new law.
An executive in Lai’s media group says he was arrested on suspicion of “colluding with foreign powers”; he had already been facing multiple charges for his role in the city’s pro-democracy movement.
The police also raided the offices of Lai’s newspaper.
