Hong Kong Takes Down First Website Under National Security Law
HONG KONG: Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) said on Thursday it blocked the website for Hong Kong Chronicles in compliance with the city’s national security law.
A spokesperson of HKBN confirmed the blockage to Reuters in an email.
Hong Kong Chronicles is a website that publishes material mainly related to anti-government protests in 2019.
The blockage marks the first time the authorities in the city have used a sweeping national security law to censor an internet website.
