Jimmy Lai remains in jail as Hong Kong’s top court considers bail

Posted on

In Hong Kong, media mogul Jimmy Lai has returned to jail after the court of final appeal adjourned his bail hearing without a decision.
The territory’s high profile pro-democracy activist is being charged under new national security laws for alleged foreign collusion. He has spent a month in prison awaiting his trial in April.

As Al Jazeera’s Divya Gopalan reports, this case is seen as a turning point in the imposition of the national security law and a crisis for the judiciary.
