Hong Kong paper execs charged with collusion


Two executives from Hong Kong’s pro-democracy Apple Daily appeared in court yesterday on charges of collusion and were denied bail after authoritie­s deployed a sweeping security law to target the newspaper, a scathing critic of Beijing.

Ryan Law, its chief editor, and Cheung Kim-hung, its CEO, are accused of colluding with foreign forces to undermine national security over a series of articles that police said called for internatio­nal sanctions.

The two will remain in custody.
