According to information released by the China Coast Guard recently , 12 Hong Kong youths took a speedboat last Sunday (August 23) and tried to escape to Taiwan in the "waters near the Guozhou Islands" (according to China) in the waters off Hong Kong. He was intercepted and arrested by the Chinese Coast Guard and escorted to China for custody. Those arrested are all charged and banned from leaving Hong Kong while on bail. Among them, Li Yuxuan, a member of "Hong Kong Story" who was arrested on August 10 for violating the national security law, is the most notable. The other 11 were involved in various charges in the extradition law incident last year, to name a few.
The atmosphere of political repression in telemarketing list Hong Kong is further heavy. There are several points worth discussing in this matter. First, according to Ta Kung Pao, in July, two groups of Hong Kong youths successfully fled to Taiwan by water. The first group took the northern route and went directly from Hong Kong to Kaohsiung; the second group took the southern route, first reaching Dongsha Island, and then arriving in Kaohsiung accompanied by Taiwanese personnel. This escape route is located in the middle of the two, and it is planned to reach Pingtung, Taiwan, which can be called the "middle line". The boarding point of this "middle line" in Hong Kong is Po Toi O, which has never been a popular spot for "running on the grass".
Why not follow the above two successful waterways this time? The reason is that these smuggling waterways have been exposed. This of course has the "credit" of the journalists. This is not only digging deeply by reporters from CCP newspapers such as Dagong Wenhui, but also revealing information intentionally or unintentionally by journalists from many pro-democracy media in their interviews and reports. The latter scourge is often greater. Since the "brothers" generally think that the pro-democracy media are "our own people", they trust them very much and take it lightly. Media reporters don’t necessarily want to be “gold fingers” on purpose, they just want to grab news, and they cannot control their proportions when writing reports.
