The cost of dancing with the enemy

In this case justice delayed didn't mean the absence of justice. That Jimmy Lai Chee-ying, founder of tabloid-style Apple Daily newspaper, was arrested on Monday for national security-related offenses shows that eventually he will be brought to justice for colluding with foreign forces and being involved in fraud.

Instead of being grateful for having been condoned for the offenses he committed before the enactment of the new national security law for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, as the law lacks retroactive effect, Lai continued with his treacheries, including intriguing with foreign elements to undermine national security.

The majority of Hong Kong residents, who desperately long for an end to their sufferings caused by the relentless machinations of Lai and other key local proxies of foreign powers such as former Hong Kong University professor Benny Tai Yiu-ting, and so-called activists Joshua Wong Chi-fung and Nathan Law Kwun-chung, must have heaved a big sigh of relief after the arrest of Lai and several of his close aides.
