CWN Editor's Note: The arrest of pro-democracy activist Jimmy Lai is part of a campaign of “political intimidation” by Chinese authorities, Cardinal Joseph Zen has said. Lai, a prominent Catholic, is the publisher of an influential newspaper, and his arrest is seen as a bid to muzzle political opposition. He could face life imprisonment under the terms of Hong Kong’s new security law.
