Video: Bookseller Lam Wing-kee’s media Q&A at LegCo – with English subtitles

Recently returned Hong Kong bookseller Lam Wing-kee held a surprise press conference last Thursday claiming that he was arrested in Shenzhen in October last year. He said that he was detained for eight months and ill-treated by a “special unit” separate from official mainland police. Since then, his colleagues at the Causeway Bay bookstore he founded, and his girlfriend in the mainland, have separately accused him of lying. Lam stands accused by mainland authorities of sending books which are banned in China to customers in the mainland.
