Hong Kong newspaper vows to 'fight on' following arrest of media tycoon
Roughly 24 hours after Lai was nabbed by authorities, the front page of Apple Daily, a tabloid operated by Next Digital that often condemns China’s Communist Party-led government, featured an image of Jimmy Lai in handcuffs.
A pro-democracy Hong Kong newspaper says it will "fight on" after authorities arrested its founder under China's new national security law which has threatened the semi-autonomous region’s free press.
On Monday, media tycoon Jimmy Lai, creator of Next Digital, was arrested and charged with collusion with foreign powers.
Roughly 24 hours after Lai was nabbed by authorities at his mansion in Kowloon, the front page of Apple Daily, a tabloid operated by Next Digital, featured an image of Lai in handcuffs, according to the BBC.
