    Poor guy is probably memorizing his text as we speak, needless to say not his own. Relieved he is back in HK at least.

    UK hasn’t made much noise about this. Either the Chinese has evidence that they haven’t released publicly yet or the British is loath to take a stand on HK. Maybe both. Not surprising with Boris needing all the leverage he can get.

    Could someone clarify.... was he detained at the West Kowloon station? Meaning, under Hong Kong soil?

    He was detained at border control in West Kowloon. There is no border control up until West Kowloon so he was still under Chinese jurisdiction.

    #BREAKING: Ex-UK consulate worker Simon Cheng suddenly declares to sever his relations with his family in Hong Kong and China after he was detained for 15 days in Shenzhen in Aug 2019. He has recently been revealing to the media how he was treated in detention.

    From his statement, we could tell his family members living in Hong Kong and China have been receiving "external harassment and threat" allegedly from the authorities. But it is still not certain what his family has faced for the time being.

    He said to the media that he saw #antiELAB protesters being sent to China for detention, interrogated and beaten by mainland authorities. There is no way the mainland authorities would confirm that, but if it was true, it would be a huge blow in "one country, two systems".

    I know someone like that. I don't think she is my friend anymore, at least not on FB ( I delete crazies like that). she is adamant that Xi is the best leader since Deng ( she wasn't even born then), that HKers are spoilt brats, but she was very worried that some official called her from the mainland a few years ago to say that she had to pay a postage fee for a parcel she sent to the mainland. This girl asked me if she would go to jail? I asked her if she had sent a package to the mainland. She said, no. So...go figure these types...
