Hong Kong Police Arrest 4 Teens For Mere Online Posts Under New Security Law

The ill effects of the Hong Kong national security law which took effect June 30 are continuing to be felt. Hong Kong pro-democracy, anti-Beijing activists have continued to be on edge and now largely 'underground' since last month's formal passage of the sweeping national security law in response to the mass protests and unrest which gripped the city for much of last year. 
On Wednesday four activists were arrested for merely making online posts expressing pro-independence sentiment. The AP reports that all of the them are young, between 16- and 18-years, and were further said to have been 'organizing'.
“Our investigation showed that a group has recently announced on social media that they have set up an organization for Hong Kong independence,” said Li Kwai-wah, head of the new HK police unit tasked with enforcing the law.
“They said they want to establish a Hong Kong republic, and that they will unreservedly fight for it,” the police commander described.
“They also said they want to unite all pro-independence groups in Hong Kong for this purpose,” he added.
When the law took effect at the start of the month, a few prominent anti-Beijing activists decided to flee, such as Nathan Law, on fears the law would certainly be used to punish their activities, and even apply retroactively. 
This also as the law harshly cracks down on dissent with possible maximum life jail sentences for some crimes, largely dependent on the ambiguous and highly open to interpretation (with no independent review) question of what constitutes 'foreign interference' or sponsorship of a 'terror' organization.

  1. One wouldn't really think much of this, all I really wanted to do was invest and be part of it but the way I was lied to by these brokers. It was terrible, to easily take money from me, all in the name of investments and when I wanted to make withdrawals every single attempt was fruitless with constant hassle to invest more I really can't say more than I have already said. I would really consider myself to be one of the very few lucky ones as I was able to recover my funds from these scam Binary option brokers, although it was through an expert strategies means.it didn't matter. but what I cared after was how to get back my hard-earned money which was taken from me, i saw a post like this narrating how he got his own money back so i followed suit.
    this man is the best cuz in less than 7days all my funds including bonuses had been recovered, If your broker refused to let you withdraw or lost your funds while trading Binary options) / forex trading or crypto currency ( troyhermes8@gmail. com) is more than capable of recovering your funds back without any costs,
