[Editor Charlie sez: The publisher Jimmy Lai is being prosecuted by the Chinese Communist Party under the same National Security Law that covers TikTok employees.]
Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai has been denied bail while awaiting trial under a controversial new national security law.
Mr Lai, 73, is accused of conspiring with foreign forces to endanger national security, and could face a lengthy jail term.
He is the most high-profile person charged under the law.
Mr Lai founded the Apple Daily newspaper and is a fierce critic of the authorities in mainland China.
The tycoon was originally arrested under the law in August 2020 after a police raid on Apple Daily’s head office. He was released on bail but then rearrested in December.
