US lawyer speaks out after Hong Kong security law arrest

Less than twelve hours after US human rights lawyer John Clancey was released on police bail over an allegation of plotting subversion against the Hong Kong government, he started working again at his office desk. Clancey, 79, was the first foreign national and US citizen arrested under the sweeping, draconian national security law Beijing imposed in Hong Kong as over 1,000 Hong Kong policemen netted 55 pro-democracy activists in dawn raids last Wednesday 6 January 2021.
