I left Hong Kong for the UK - but I’m still being followed

Telegraph, 30 Apr 2021
Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Simon Cheng fled to the UK last June but has told The Telegraph that he is still worried about being followed in London by people he suspects are linked to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

The former employee of the British Consulate in Hong Kong was allegedly tortured at the hands of Chinese secret police.

“I have experienced [being] followed and tailed by suspected Chinese agents… in central London a few times,” said Mr Cheng, who was granted asylum in the UK, in the video above.

“I’m quite vocal and active in the pro-democracy activisms in the UK, so I’ve been singled out by the CCP regime as a traitor or trouble-maker or anti-China figure.

“So I think the danger [I face] might be greater than other BNO (British National Overseas) citizens.”
