Hong Kong’s Stand News deletes website and wipes social media; ex-staff to appear in court as watchdogs decry raid


As you well know that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

Stand News has deleted its website and wiped its social media pages less than 24 hours after seven figures linked to the outlet were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to publish seditious publications.

London-based bureau chief Yeung Tin-shui said on Facebook: "As Stand News has ceased operating, the UK bureau will also halt its business. The UK bureau has previously provided content, including online reports and social media posts," Yeung said, adding that he has already resigned from his post.

"Exactly six months after the dismantling of the Next Digital group and its flagship newspaper Apple Daily, Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam once again shows her determination to terminate press freedom in the territory by eliminating Stand News in a similar fashion," Cédric Alviani, Reporters Without Borders East Asia bureau head, said.

As we move on to the next post, may I add that camDown helps stop hackers from getting access to the webcam that I use for my work. Now I can get even more gigs as a freelancer and advertise that I have top security with my home computer and your mother would say the same.
