Frances Hui from the CFHK Foundation wanted by Hong Kong authorities, HK$1 million bounty placed.

14 December 2023 - Today, National Security Police in Hong Kong have added five more people to their wanted list, including Frances Hui, a staffer at the Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong Foundation (CFHK Foundation), and placed a HK$1 million bounty for their capture.

Frances Hui was the first Hong Konger to gain asylum in the United States after fleeing the city following threats for participating in the protests of 2019 and 2020. Frances Hui has played a key role in pushing a Sanctions Bill through the US Congress which would see several Hong Kong authority figures banned from entering the US. The Bill is currently supported by Senator Dan Sullivan and Senator Jeff Merkley.

Also on the list are Joey Siu, from the National Democratic Institute in the US, Simon Cheng, Founder of Hong Kongers in Britain, as well as Hong Kongers Jonny Fok and Tony Choi. Both Frances Hui and Joey Siu have been accused of colluding with foreign forces, while Simon Cheng, 33, was accused of foreign collusion and inciting secession.

These five bounties and arrest warrants follow those issued for another eight activists in July 2023: Anna Kwok, Ted Hui, Dennis Kwok, Nathan Law, Elmer Yuen, Mung Siu-Tat and Kevin Yam and Finn Lau.

In a clear cut case of transnational repression by the CCP against Hong Kongers speaking out against the Hong Kong authorities, Chief Superintendent Steve Li of the force’s National Security Department said on Thursday: “All of them, who have already fled overseas, have continued to commit the offence under the national security law that seriously endanger national security, including incitement to secession, incitement to subversion, and collusion with foreign country or external elements to endanger national security.”

Mark Sabah, Director of the Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong Foundation said:

“Frances Hui has worked tirelessly in the United States to punish those responsible for the crackdown on civil liberties in Hong Kong. We stand behind her and will continue to support her and all those fighting for freedom in Hong Kong. I can only assume that placing another round of bounties on the heads of activists who have fled Hong Kong, indicates that they are doing a good job at exposing the behaviour of CCP backed Hong Kong officials.”
