We are deeply troubled by the arrest of Jimmy Lai, a Hong Kong businessman, publisher, and prominent pro-democracy advocate. Two of Jimmy’s sons and several executives from his media company have also been arrested by Hong Kong authorities under the auspices of the national security law imposed by the Chinese Communist Party. Jimmy and his colleagues are powerful voices for the fundamental rights and liberties that Beijing guaranteed to the people of Hong Kong, but that it now systematically attacks.  As a newspaperman, entrepreneur, and citizen, Jimmy Lai has exercised, celebrated, and defended liberty by warning what Hong Kong would be like without it.

我們對香港商人、出版商、著名民運宣導者黎智英的被捕而深感不安。根據中國共產黨頒佈的國家安全法,黎智英的兩個兒子及其媒體公司多名高管也被香港當局逮捕。黎智英及其同事是香港基本權利和自由的強力代言人,北京方面曾向香港人民保證享有這些,而如今且對這發起系統性攻擊。作為一名新聞工作者、企業家和公民,黎智英通過警示沒有基本權利和自由的香港將會是什麼樣子,來踐行、慶祝和捍衛自由。

Beijing’s national security law denies the people of Hong Kong their fundamental rights and liberties and increases the Chinese Communist Party’s control over Hong Kong’s internal affairs.  These reported arrests, following the recent action by the Hong Kong government to unjustly disqualify candidates and postpone the Legislative Council elections, are the latest violations of Beijing’s commitments to the Hong Kong people and the world. These arrests are also a clear effort to intimidate pro-democracy and political opposition figures and suppress Hong Kong’s free and independent media, which have played key roles in the city’s character and success.

北京方面的國家安全法剝奪了香港人民的基本權利和自由,強化了中國共產黨對香港內部事務的控制。接踵而來的是香港政府最近採取的行動,不公正地取消候選人資格並推遲立法會選舉,據報,這些逮捕事件是北京對香港人民和世界承諾的新近食言。這些逮捕顯然也是為了恐嚇民主派和反對派政治人士,並壓制香港自由獨立之媒體,而這些媒體對這座城市的特色和成功起到了關鍵作用。

We stand with Jimmy Lai and his sons and colleagues, and call on Beijing to repeal the national security law and restore Hong Kong’s rule of law immediately.

我們與黎智英及其兒子和其同事們站在一起,呼籲北京廢除國家安全法並立即恢復香港的法治。
