The Wall Street Journal, Veteran American Lawyer Detained in Hong Kong Pro-Democracy Crackdown

The Wall Street Journal, Veteran American Lawyer Detained in Hong Kong Pro-Democracy Crackdown

“An American lawyer and human-rights activist was among the dozens of pro-democracy figures arrested on allegations of subversion by Hong Kong police on Wednesday, the first U.S. citizen known to be apprehended under the city’s national security law.”

“Hong Kong police arrested more than 50 pro-democracy figures for allegedly plotting to destabilize the government. WSJ’s Andrew Dowell reports on how the biggest crackdown since the national security law was imposed chips away at the city’s rule of law and global status.”

“He’s certainly one of the most peaceful and reasonable persons that you’re ever going to meet,” said Mark Daly, a Hong Kong lawyer who has worked on human-rights issues with Mr. Clancey. “It certainly is a concern with this national security law that possibly even promoting democracy and human rights may be considered an offense.”
