OPC Condemns Arrest of Jimmy Lai
Jimmy Lai, the 71-year-old Hong Kong pro-Democracy media mogul, was arrested Monday under the new National Security Law. His newspaper offices were raided and Lai along with six others were charged with “suspicion of collusion with foreign forces,” according to news reports.
The Overseas Press Club condemns Lai’s arrest as it demonstrates the new National Security Law exists to deprive the Hong Kong-based media of press freedom.
The Overseas Press Club is an international association of journalists based in New York City that works to encourage the highest standards in journalism, to educate the next generation of foreign correspondents and to promote international press freedom and the well-being of colleagues in the field.
