Top Dividend Stocks – Two Apple Daily executives on HK national security charge denied bail
HONG KONG, June 19 (Reuters) – Two executives of Hong Kong pro-democracy newspaper Apple Daily, charged under a national security law, were denied bail on Saturday, in a case that has drawn international condemnation and stoked fears over media freedoms in the financial hub.
Editor-in-chief Ryan Law, 47, and chief executive Cheung Kim-hung, 59, appeared in West Kowloon Magistrates’ Courts on charges of “collusion with a foreign country or with external elements to endanger national security.”
Judge Victor So denied them bail.
