Hong Kong media tycoon and pro-democracy activist Jimmy Lai said police raided his private offices earlier on Thursday, months after he was arrested on suspicion of violating the city’s national security law
Lai said police did not wait for his lawyers to arrive at his office and took away documents. Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Lai’s aide Mark Simon said on Twitter police did not leave any names or contacts for the 14 officers who searched the office.
Lai was arrested in August on suspicion of colluding with foreign forces as around 200 police searched the offices of his Apple Daily anti-government tabloid, published by Next Digital Ltd. Police later also searched his yacht.
He has not been charged.
