Wife of activist Lee Cheuk-yan still detained on NSL violations

Wife of activist Lee Cheuk-yan still detained on NSL violations

The wife of jailed pro-democracy leader Lee Cheuk-yan was still detained by national security police as of Friday after she was arrested for collusion with foreign forces.
Elizabeth Tang Yin-ngor, 65, the former chief executive of the disbanded Confederation of Trade Unions, was arrested outside Stanley Prison yesterday after visiting her husband Lee.

It is understood that Tang flew back to Hong Kong from Britain this month after being informed that Lee broke his wrist in a fall in prison. Since returning, Tang has been visiting Lee every day and, sources said, she was arrested because she is planning to leave the city soon.

It was reported that during the time when Tang served as director of Asia Monitor Resource Centre, the group has received HK$118 million funding from institutions in the United States, Germany and Norway to sponsor the labor movement in Asia.

The center ceased operations in Hong Kong and stop receiving donations following the disbandment of the CTU - the largest pro-democracy union with 75 affiliates and more than 100,000 members - in October 2021

Tang and Lee wed in 1985 and cofounded CTU in 1990. Tang served as the chief executive of the union until 2011. CTU, the largest pro-democracy union with 75 affiliates and more than 100,000 members, disbanded in October 2021.

The center previously responded to the allegations, saying that it was not a subsidiary unit of any of the organizations.

It said: "AMRC started its mission in 1968. We have been working for the labor rights of grassroots workers across Asia, particularly on occupational health and safety since then.

"For decades, we have been a civil society organization independent of any local or international organizations.

"It is a privilege that we are based in Hong Kong, an international city that provides efficient communication, international exchange, resources for comparative studies in law and policy and rich labor rights education, allowing us to contribute to the advancement of labor rights in the region," it said.

"Nonetheless, such a viable environment is drastically shrinking. The pressure on our operation has intensified significantly."

Lee, former general secretary of the union, was jailed for 20 months over illegal assembly cases and has completed serving his term.

But he is still being remanded at Stanley Prison after being charged with inciting subversion over his leading role in the disbanded Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China.

Lee applied for bail in December last year, but was rejected by High Court judge Andrew Chan Hing-wai, who believed Lee might endanger national security again.

Chan said Lee had sold his flat while his wife Tang and daughter had left Hong Kong.

Meanwhile, national security police arrested a 23-year-old woman in Sau Mau Ping on Wednesday for suspected inciting secession.

Investigation revealed that the arrested woman was suspected of publishing online posts that incite Hong Kong independence.
