Protests are barred in China,people cannot raise their dissent out there whereas for Hong Kong protests are special rights that civilians are having out there . It runs under one country two systems arrangement where it has autonomy & this people have more rights(3/n)

On the other hand,Jimmy Lai is one of the big business tycoons & Media mogul in Hong Kong. He owns the famous clothing brand Giordano & runs a big media company & newspaper " Apple Daily'. Its circulation is very huge & has a wide reach in Hong Kong.
Apple daily is famous for publishing the important news of China,which are kept secret as China never allows such type of News to come out its Country. The Communist Party of China controls the media houses out there and the restrictions don't allow flow of information.(6/n)

These low quality military vehicles was one of the major reason of Chinese Army being defeated in the recent Galwan valley clashes in disputed LAC. China tried best to suppress this important news from its people & whole world. (8/n)
But somehow Apple daily got hold of this important news from it sources & it published it. Apple daily earlier too had exposed the huge corruption that was going in the Chinese government by its officials. (9/n)
