    True, but not necessarily impossible. There is an action called "malicious prosecution". Very hard to prove successfully in practice, but it is possible for the defence to try. They could even try defamation action against the police, again, scant chance of success, but not impossible.

    Is it worth moving funds out into high tax countries?

    Why? Plenty of low tax countries around. Move it to Singapore if you don't trust HK.

Whoever's thinking the flow can be stopped by shutting down a few accounts is obviously quite naive.

    The Hong Kong some people are apparently content to live in today.
