Hong Kong newspaper editor, CEO denied bail

The CEO and editor of a pro-Democracy newspaper in Hong Kong were denied bail at their court hearing Saturday after being detained for breaking the city’s new national security law.

The chief editor of Apple Daily, Ryan Law, and the CEO of the paper’s parent company, Next Digital, Cheung Kim-hung, were charged with collusion with a foreign country to endanger national security and were denied bail due to Chief Magistrate Victor So believing they would violate the law again, The Associated Press reported.

Law and Cheung will be held at the Lai Chi Kok detention center until their next court date on Aug. 13.
