Six Former Apple Daily Staff Plead Guilty to Conspiracy Charges 涉勾結外國勢力觸國安法 香港蘋果6名高層認罪

Six former staff of Hong Kong's now defunct pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily pleaded guilty on Tuesday (Nov. 22) to conspiracy to commit collusion with foreign forces, in one of the former British colony's biggest national security cases. 


The six include Cheung Kim-hung, who was chief executive of the newspaper's former owner, Next Digital, Apple Daily's former associate publisher Chan Pui-man, former editor-in-chief Ryan Law, former executive editor-in-chief Lam Man-chung, former English edition editor-in-chief Fung Wai-kong and former editorial writer Yeung Ching-kee. They pleaded guilty to conspiring with media tycoon Jimmy Lai and others to request a foreign country or organisation "to impose sanctions or blockade, or engage in other hostile activities" against the Hong Kong and Chinese governments between July 2020 and June 2021. All six and Lai, who is already in jail after being convicted for his role in an illegal assembly, were charged under new security laws imposed by Beijing in 2020.

 

 

香港「蘋果日報」的6位前高層,22日承認勾結外國勢力的罪名,包括壹傳媒前行政總裁兼《蘋果日報》前社長張劍虹、《蘋果日報》前副社長陳沛敏、前總編輯羅偉光、前執行總編輯林文宗、前主筆兼英文版執行總編輯馮偉光及前主筆楊清奇。他們承認在2020年7月至2021年6月期間,與媒體大亨黎智英等人,密謀請求外國或境外機構、組織、人員實施對香港特區政府或中國進行制裁、封鎖或採取其他敵對行動。六名被告自2020年北京政府開始實施香港國安法、鎮壓異議人士後遭羈押,法院會在黎智英所涉案件審訊完結後,才會進行宣判。
