On November 16, local time, at a press conference, Mrs. Lam admitted that an important basis for the Hong Kong Communist government to review is whether not to grant visas to foreign media concerning the “Hong Kong national security law.”
On November 13, Hong Kong-based journalists from British magazines were denied visas by the Hong Kong Communist government. In response, the magazine has repeatedly complained and issued a statement denouncing this inappropriate practice by the Hong Kong Communist government. For this reason, on the 14th, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Hong Kong also issued a statement urging the Hong Kong government to ensure that the visa renewal process for foreign journalists is not politicized or used as a weapon to silence press freedom.
However, some commentators mentioned that the democratic situation has deteriorated since the CCP forced the “Hong Kong national security law” in 2020. Democracy activists, newspaper editors, and journalists in Hong Kong are constantly being detained or arrested by the Hong Kong authorities, and the national security law has been used as a tool to suppress dissidents by the Hong Kong government, which is completely controlled by the CCP.
