Hong Kong has protected the identities of police officers since the start of increasingly violent demonstrations in 2019, led by opposition to democratization against the government-backed government in the semi-autonomous state of Beijing.

The protests were almost over after the opposition won a big victory in the local parliamentary elections, but the central government quickly punished the people behind the opposition and countered any challenges to its authority.

This was led by the enforcement of extensive national security legislation last year, and this year continued to change representatives in the city’s legislative council to secure a majority of strong Pro-Beijing factions. Both measures were enacted by the National People’s Congress, a ceremonial parliament in China, without giving voters in Hong Kong a say.

Last month, police arrested seven journalists and executives from the now abolished Apple Daily, a democratization newspaper that was a critic of the voices of the Hong Kong and Chinese governments. Authorities also frozen $ 2.3 million in assets related to Apple Daily and were forced to shut down Apple Daily last week.
