NEWSLETTER: CFHK Foundation Joins Activists in Protesting Hong Kong Official’s UK Visit

Committee News

The CFHK Foundation’s Communications Manager, Megan Khoo, spoke at a protest against Hong Kong’s Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Christopher Hui’s visit to the UK. Mr Hui's visit immediately followed Hong Kong Watch's reportthat reveals how Hong Kong and companies like HSBC have denied Hong Kongers from accessing £2.2 billion worth of their pensions. Mrs Khoo declared, in a city that holds more than 1,400 political prisoners including British citizen Jimmy Lai, “It is ‘absolutely ludicrous’ that Hui could still speak at Innovate Finance’s conference after the CFHK Foundation had spent a month calling on British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak to revoke the Hong Kong officials’ invitation to the UK”, reported the Hong Kong Free Press.

The CFHK Foundation’s UK and EU Director, Mark Sabah, spoke with TalkTV’s Julia Hartley-Brewer about political prisoners worldwide, including the Russian Federation's recent arrests of political activist Vladimir Kara-Murza and The Wall Street Journal's Evan Gershkovich as well as the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) and Hong Kong authorities' detainment of media tycoon Jimmy Lai. Mr Sabah called on the British government to help secure the immediate release of British citizens Vladimir Kara-Murza and Jimmy Lai.

The Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong (CFHK) Foundation provided evidence to the United Nations’ Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Hong Kong authorities’ systematic persecution of women human rights activists, journalists, and politicians in Hong Kong and abroad.

The CFHK Foundation’s Mark Sabah spoke to NTD News about the imprisonment of Vladimir Kara-Murza and other political prisoners worldwide.
