Apple Daily’s Jimmy Lai accuses Beijing of collective punishment (2020/08/13)

Now on bail after being arrested on security charges on Monday, Hong Kong media tycoon and democracy activist Jimmy Lai has claimed the arrests of his two sons were carried out to intimidate other would-be opponents of Beijing in the city. As the world's eye rests on Hong Kong, President Tsai Ing-wen has given an address to Washington think tank Hudson Institute, saying the world has "an obligation" to act in defense of Hong Kong's freedom.

After almost 40 hours in detention, Lai was released on bail. Interviewed at the Apple Daily headquarters, he spoke about spending the night sleeping on the floor in the police cell. At that moment, he says, he thought, “I must walk this path, even though I’m sleeping on the ground now, and even if I’m sleeping in a jail one day.”

Jimmy Lai
Next Media founder
I believe I have no choice. I must stay in Hong Kong. I can’t run away when the situation gets big, after having been an instigator. That won’t do. I’m the media chief of the opposition. If I jump onboard, I have to see it through to the end.

Three months ago, in an interview with Wealth Magazine, Lai declared his intention to live and die in Hong Kong. Now he says that the arrests of his sons and colleagues were political, constituting an attempt to punish all those close to him. The authorities aim to intimidate more moderate citizens, he says. As the international community unanimously condemns the developments, Taiwan has spoken up especially loudly.

Tsai Ing-wen
President
While we are concerned about COVID-19’s economic impact, we are also worried about its broader political implications across the region. When the rest of the world has been distracted in responding to one of the most recent crises in recent history, we are seeing a growing effort to pose ever more challenging threats to free, and democratic societies. Nowhere is this more apparent than Hong Kong.

President Tsai Ing-wen gave this address online for Hudson Institute and the Center for American Progress, once more doubling down on Taiwan’s commitment to support Hong Kong refugees, and underlining the importance of Taiwan’s sovereignty.

Tsai Ing-wen
President
We recognize the bravery of the people of Hong Kong. Earlier in July, hundreds of thousands of people turned out to vote in primary elections, despite the significant actions that have been taken to discourage them from doing so. We also see the international community as having an obligation to speak out and act against the demise of Hong Kong’s freedoms. I applaud the actions that the U.K., the U.S. and many other democracies have taken, and call on more like-minded countries to do the same.

Democracy is becoming one of Tsai’s most well-trodden speech topics. But not content with mere words, her administration is attempting to reach out to those who need assistance.

批誅九族!黎智英:就算睡監獄仍會走這條路

香港壹傳媒創辦人黎智英遭港警國安處逮捕獲釋後,接受自家媒體香港蘋果日報專訪,直言當局這次行動常政治化,根本是誅九族,但未來就算睡監獄,他還是會走這條路。總統蔡英文昨天晚間,接受美國華府智庫視訊演說時,則是再談起憂心香港現狀。

遭到警方拘捕近40小時獲釋,香港壹傳媒董事長黎智英,回到香港蘋果日報大樓,並接受自家媒體專訪,回憶自己躺在警署拘留室地板過夜,他腦海浮現的是:就算現在睡地上、未來睡監獄,我都會走這條路。

[[壹傳媒創辦人黎智英]]
“我覺得我沒有選擇的,我一定要留在香港的。我不能作為其中一個搞事的人,把事情搞大了就走,這個不行的。我是這個反對派的傳媒頭頭,我跳船啊,一定要到最後的。”

三個月前,接受財訊專訪,黎智英就強調自己和香港共存亡的決心。這次和兩個兒子及壹傳媒高層被捕,他直言當局行動非常政治化,根本是誅九族,目的就是要企圖震懾較溫和的港人。全球同聲譴責中國的同時,一直和香港站在一起的台灣,則是再發聲力挺。

[[總統蔡英文]]
“除了疫情對經濟的衝擊外,我們更關切伴隨而來的廣泛政治效應。當全球專注於對抗近代史上,最為嚴峻的危機之際,我們看到一股勢力正升高,對自由民主社會的威脅,香港就是最明顯的例子。”

接受華府智庫「哈德遜研究所」和「美國進步中心」邀請,以視訊方式參與會議,總統蔡英文再度宣示對香港的人道救援,同時重申台灣主權重要性。

[[總統蔡英文]]
“我們要向勇敢的香港人民致敬。7月初,數十萬香港民眾不畏險阻,在香港立法會選舉初選,走出來投票。我們也深感國際社會有責任發聲並採取行動阻止香港的自由消逝,在此特別讚賞美國、英國及其他民主國家的作為,也呼籲更多理念相近國家勇敢站出來。”

蔡總統數度針對民主議題發表談話,更設置台港服務交流辦公室,要用行動撐香港到底。
