Chinese Police have confirmed the arrest of one of the Catholic Church’s most senior members, Cardinal, Joseph Zen, in Hong Kong for breaking China’s national security law.
Cardinal Zen, ninety, is one of four people detained for being associated with a now-defunct organization that helped protesters in financial need.
Reports names others as Cantopop singer and actor, Denise Ho, ex-legislator, Margaret Ng, and academic, Dr. Hui Po Keung.
According to the reports, they are accused of colluding with foreign forces and if found guilty, they could face life in prison.
But Human Rights Watch called it a shocking new low for Hong Kong.
