South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Apple Daily editor-in-chief, 4 newspaper directors arrested under Hong Kong national security law” – below is their description.

Hong Kong’s national security police cited more than 30 Apple Daily articles that called for sanctions against the city and mainland China as justification for arresting the tabloid-style newspaper’s editor-in-chief, publisher and three other executives on June 17, 2021. Police said the publication of such articles was evidence of a conspiracy to collude with foreign forces in violation of the national security law that was imposed on the city by Beijing in August 2020.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
