Justice has been served in policemen’s case Listen
A barrister says the conviction of seven policemen for kicking and punching activist Ken Tsang shows that justice has been done. Randy Shek, who is a member of the Progressive Lawyers Group, says the officers were found to have used excessive force and have been held accountable for their actions. But he tells Jim Gould that there are other similar cases that are begging for action.
Xiao Jianhua’s case probably related to power struggle Listen
China analyst Mark O’Neill says Beijing’s crackdown on people working for billionaire Xiao Jianhua is most likely related to the very bitter power struggle between President Xi Jinping and his opponents. The New York Times says one of Xiao’s employees was detained by immigration officers at Hong Kong International Airport, and dozens of others have been barred from leaving the mainland. Xiao was earlier reported to have been whisked away in a wheelchair from a luxury hotel in Central, with his head covered. O'Neill tells Annemarie Evans that the mainland authorities are conducting a major investigation.
Flynn’s resignation is a big loss for Trump Listen
The Executive Director of the Hong Kong America Center, Glenn Shive, says the resignation of US national security adviser, Michael Flynn, is a very big loss for President Donald Trump. He says this also shows Trump’s new team has still not congealed and could possibly be at each other’s throats. Flynn resigned following reports he misled Vice-President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russia. In his resignation letter, Flynn said he held numerous calls with the Russian ambassador to the US during the transition and gave "incomplete information" about those discussions to Pence. Shive tells Annemarie Evans that Flynn’s departure is being seen as disruptive to Trump’s new administration.
