The publisher Jimmy Lai has never made a secret of the fact that he holds the Beijing way of economic development, while political oppression is wrong.
His arrest on Monday symbolized the decline of an experiment that was once thought of as a model for Taiwan. Who would rely on contracts with the Chinese leadership, wrote something like the principle of "One country, two systems" firmly?
Jimmy Lai's newspaper "Apple Daily", a major voice of the Pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong, is in danger to be brought. A free press for Beijing to things, which, allegedly, the "stability" of the state is undermined. The mental walls, behind the leadership of state and party chief Xi Jinping pulls back, higher and higher.
This is neither for China nor for the rest of the world a good message. Improvement is not to be expected; even when in Washington, not Donald Trump should govern. The retreat at the same time, always more aggressive behavior to the outside is, rather, a program. The world will need to find an answer. You should work together in the formulation of this answer as comprehensively as possible.Updated Date: 11 August 2020, 20:19
