In May of 2020 President Trump had the guts to call out China on its many abuses. (I was in Hong Kong at that time and people there loved President Trump and praised him for his strength and courage.)
Within a year, China had used COVID to destroy the free country, leaving its economy in shambles.
Then China started arresting politicians for their beliefs in freedom.
Now Newsmax is reporting:
The former leader of Hong Kong pro-independence group Studentlocalism was sentenced on Tuesday to a total of 43 months in prison for trying to separate the city from China, and for money laundering.
Tony Chung, 20, was charged with secession, under a sweeping national security law, and money laundering in October 2020 and was denied bail. Local media reported at the time that he was detained along with two others at a coffee shop close to the U.S. consulate by unidentified men and was believed to be preparing for an asylum application.
Tony is just a child. He has the courage of a thousand men, however. (I’ve been to that coffee shop across from the US Embassy many times as I waited for an appointment or to meet someone else with an appointment with the Embassy.)
God bless the good people of Hong Kong. God bless hero, Tony Chung.
