    Hong Kong media mogul Jimmy Lai arrested under national security law

    Jimmy Lai, a Hong Kong media tycoon and pro-democracy activist, was arrested Monday morning on allegations of violating the city’s new national security law imposed by Beijing. His arrest marks the most overt action taken by Hong Kong’s pro-Beijing Lam government under the central government’s law.

    At 71 years old, Lai is one of a few remaining Hong Kong elite openly vocal about supporting the city’s pro-democracy movement. Lai founded Next Digital, the media that publishes the widely read Apple Daily, known for its critical coverage of the Chinese Communist regime and the Hong Kong government during the past year of protests.

    “Longtime Hong Kong publisher arrested for daring to speak out against Chinese Communist Party—actually, for daring just to report the news. This is the “free speech” China wants to force on the world,” Missouri Senator Josh Hawley said on Twitter in reaction to the blatant attack on free speech.
