• Hong Kong media tycoon under graf investigation


    HONG KONG: Anti-corruption officers conducted an early morning raid on Thursday on the Hong Kong home of Jimmy Lai, an outspoken mogul whose media empire is often highly critical of Beijing. Trading in shares of Lai’s Next Media, one of the city’s major press groups, were suspended following the raid. The investigation comes at a time of growing disquiet in Hong Kong over the erosion of press freedom and perceived influence Beijing holds over the semi-autonomous city.
