蘋果日報辦公樓遭香港警方搜查,🍎壹傳媒公司聲明:堅守崗位,撐到底

壹傳媒創辦人黎智英及集團多名高層人員被警方以《國安法》及其他罪行為由拘捕,數以百計警員到《蘋果日報》大樓封鎖搜查,企圖以威嚇手段侵害新聞自由,製造白色恐怖,《蘋果日報》感到極度憤怒,並予以最強烈譴責。

香港警隊屢稱依法辦事,但公然違規濫權,包括無視法庭搜查令限制,肆無忌憚翻閱新聞採訪材料、限制編採人員活動和履行採訪職務,阻撓新聞機構正常運作。面對此等不合法、不合理的橫蠻行徑,《蘋果日報》仝人定必以無畏無懼的態度,繼續在打壓中,以真相說亮話。

港版《國安法》聲言香港居民享有言論、新聞、出版自由,警隊種種行徑,已向香港及國際社會作了一次反面示範。搜查新聞機構嚴重衝擊新聞自由,為文明社會所不容,政權以為滋擾及威嚇便能令我們噤聲,欲將一個國際城市逼退至第三世界、極權社會水平。香港新聞自由岌岌可危,現時更被推至懸崖邊緣,面對危急關頭,《蘋果日報》仝人必定緊守崗位,捍衞新聞自由。

正如《蘋果日報》社長張劍虹所言:「《蘋果》一定撐下去。」

Statement of Next Digital Limited:
Following the arrests of Jimmy Lai, founder of Next Digital, and executives of the media group under the national security law on Monday, several hundreds of police officers conducted a raid at the Apple Daily headquarters. Officers were seen rifling through documents in the newsroom, breaching press freedom through intimidation and creating an atmosphere of white terror. Apple Daily is furious and hereby strongly condemns the operation.
The Hong Kong Police Force have blatantly bypassed the law and abused their power, despite claims about acting according to the rules. They have, for instance, ignored the limitation of the search warrant and rifled through news materials, as well as restricting press members from reporting and obstructing a news organization from operating. In the face of these illegal, unreasonable and barbaric tactics, the staff of Apple Daily will stay fearless and continue speaking the truth amid persecution.
Beijing’s national security law for Hong Kong claims to guarantee residents’ freedom of speech, of the press and of publication, but the authorities’ actions have proved otherwise. Raiding a news institution is a severe attack on press freedom and should not be tolerated in a civilized society. The regime believes that we will be silenced by intimidation and harassment, and that they can take an international city down the path of autocracy. Hong Kong’s press freedom is now hanging by a thread, but our staff will remain fully committed to our duty to defend the freedom of the press.
As Publisher of Apple Daily Cheung Kim Hung says: Apple Daily shall fight on.
