Xiao’s apparent abduction will have serious effect on Hong Kong: analyst Listen
China analyst, Willy Lam, says the apparent abduction of mainland tycoon, Xiao Jianhua, by mainland security agents will have a devastating effect on the One Country, Two Systems principle. He says the agents’ action will also be very detrimental to the territory’s status as an international financial centre. Lam says this will discourage business people from the mainland from taking up residency in the city in order to do business on the mainland. He tells Annemarie Evans that the Chief Executive, CY Leung, should go to Beijing to find out what has actually happened in Xiao's case.
