    Criticised China On Social Media? You May Be Arrested In Hong Kong

    This unprecedented extra-territorial application of the law means that if an Indian citizen sitting in India says something overly critical of the Chinese government on Twitter (which can fall under the definition of subversion), they could be arrested if they ever travel to Hong Kong for a holiday/work trip.

    Hong Kong was once a home for critics of Beijing. Now they might not even be safe at the airport

    By Ben Westcott, CNN.

    Updated 8:45 PM EDT, Fri July 03, 2020.

    Hong Kong(CNN)A year ago, Chinese-Australian dissident artist Badiucao was searching for a place in Hong Kong to display some of his political works, many of which are critical of the Chinese Communist Party.

    Now he says he wouldn't even transfer through Hong Kong airport for fear of being arrested under the city's new national security law.

    That's because the legislation, which came into effect late Tuesday,doesn't only clamp down on freedoms at home. It also puts foreign citizens who criticize the Chinese government anywhere in the world at risk of jail if they even set foot in the city -- even if they are just transiting through the airport.

    Quite a legal precedent, and I'm not sure how defensible it would be in the World Court.

    OTH, maybe we should do that and start arresting all of the terrorists "just passing through".

    It's a world gone crazy.

        The CCP has already abducted people outside China (Thailand) and spirited them to China for... disappearance.

        So, to begin with, don't be Chinese – and it is the CCP that decides who is and who isn't, and who the laws apply to, and where.

            British Citizen, Hong Kong media mogul Jimmy Lai, 71, was arrested on Monday and the office of his newspaper Apple Daily was raided by police. Since protests against Hong Kong’s national security law began last year, Lai has prominently supported the pro-democracy movement. Hong Kong police said Lai had been charged with “violating the territory’s new national security law.”

            Lai is a citizen of the United Kingdom but was born in Guangzhou, China. According to a BBC profile, at age 12, Lai fled his village in mainland China, and reached Hong Kong as a stowaway on a fishing boat.

            According to China’s Global Times, two of Lai’s sons and two senior executives of Next Digital have also been arrested by Hong Kong police.
