First European citizen jailed under Hong Kong security law

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A Portuguese man has become the first European citizen jailed under the China-imposed National Security Law in Hong Kong, a law widely criticised by rights groups.

Joseph John, also known as Wong Kin-chung, holds a Portuguese passport and Hong Kong residency and was previously based in the UK.

He was arrested for posting pro-independence and anti-China content on social media, after returning to Hong Kong to visit family in 2022

In February, he was convicted of "secession" and on Thursday sentenced to five years in jail.

Yes, you have to be careful to not say or write anything negative against the Chinese government if you are originally from China, and want to be able to go back to visit your family. I've heard that from people originally from China here in Sweden.
