We are deeply troubled by the arrest of Jimmy Lai, a Hong Kong businessman, publisher, and prominent pro-democracy advocate. Two of Jimmy’s sons and several executives from his media company have also been arrested by Hong Kong authorities under the auspices of the national security law imposed by the Chinese Communist Party. Jimmy and his colleagues are powerful voices for the fundamental rights and liberties that Beijing guaranteed to the people of Hong Kong, but that it now systematically attacks.  As a newspaperman, entrepreneur, and citizen, Jimmy Lai has exercised, celebrated, and defended liberty by warning what Hong Kong would be like without it.

我们对香港商人、出版商、著名民运倡导者黎智英的被捕而深感不安。根据中国共产党颁布的国家安全法,黎智英的两个儿子及其媒体公司多名高管也被香港当局逮捕。黎智英及其同事是香港基本权利和自由的强力代言人,北京方面曾向香港人民保证享有这些,而如今且对这发起系统性攻击。作为一名新闻工作者、企业家和公民,黎智英通过警示没有基本权利和自由的香港将会是什么样子,来践行、庆祝和捍卫自由。

Beijing’s national security law denies the people of Hong Kong their fundamental rights and liberties and increases the Chinese Communist Party’s control over Hong Kong’s internal affairs.  These reported arrests, following the recent action by the Hong Kong government to unjustly disqualify candidates and postpone the Legislative Council elections, are the latest violations of Beijing’s commitments to the Hong Kong people and the world. These arrests are also a clear effort to intimidate pro-democracy and political opposition figures and suppress Hong Kong’s free and independent media, which have played key roles in the city’s character and success.

北京方面的国家安全法剥夺了香港人民的基本权利和自由,强化了中国共产党对香港内部事务的控制。接踵而来的是香港政府最近采取的行动,不公正地取消候选人资格并推迟立法会选举,据报,这些逮捕事件是北京对香港人民和世界承诺的新近食言。这些逮捕显然也是为了恐吓民主派和反对派政治人士,并压制香港自由独立之媒体,而这些媒体对这座城市的特色和成功起到了关键作用。

We stand with Jimmy Lai and his sons and colleagues, and call on Beijing to repeal the national security law and restore Hong Kong’s rule of law immediately.

我们与黎智英及其儿子和其同事们站在一起,呼吁北京方面废除国家安全法并立即恢复香港的法治。
