Taiwan – Hong Kong government freezes tabloid’s assets

103

The Hong Kong government has frozen the tabloid’s assets, causing it to shut down in summer 2021. Mark Simon, founder assistant, and mastermind of Apple Daily talks about the struggles the newspaper and its employees went through during a time when the Hong Kong government clamped down on publication and about the details of the large police raid on the newspaper’s newsroom, and the arrest of its owner Jimmy Lai. Chelsea Chan, a Hong Kong student residing in Taipei, Taiwan, also talks about the Apple Daily newspaper, which he knows from his home city, and which, for him, was the mouthpiece of the truth, considering its closure as a restriction of media freedoms.
