Edward Leung will soon get out of prison. Having been inside for the best part of six years, he’s one of the few prominent activists the authorities can’t (in theory) prosecute for activities in 2019-20. The article says he will keep a low profile (sensible) and that he is a ‘reformed’ character (hmm).
The CCP will keep its eyes on him. It’s even keeping its eyes on Ming Pao – the latest media outlet to incur the wrath of Ta Kung Pao. If a mainstream pro-establishment paper like that is getting a warning shot for not adhering strictly to the official line, you can be sure other Beijing-friendly media will also have to watch their step more carefully. The South China Morning Onion offers a suitably harmonious piece on Witman Hung, the ‘flamboyant’ wine and karaoke fan.
