The pictures and accompanying story of Joshua Wong, Agnes Chow and Ivan Lam being taken into custody this week, after their pre-trial hearing demonstrates how the rule of law has been replaced by rule by law. Ronald Reagan was right: “Freedom must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation” – and these brave young people have lost their freedom because of their passion for the freedom of others.

Joshua Wong received the Westminster Award for Human Rights, Human Life and Human Dignity. Hong Kong’s authorities should be proud to have young people like Joshua who champion democracy, liberty, and the rule of law. Instead, on the orders of the Chinese Communist Party, they lock them up and persecute them.
