Lawmakers Call on HSBC to Unfreeze Hong Kong Activist’s Accounts

08 February 2021

    An international coalition of lawmakers from countries including Britain, Australia, Japan and the US has written to HSBC Holdings Chairman - Mark Tucker, calling on the bank to unfreeze Hong Kong’s pro-democracy activist - Ted Hui's accounts.


    "HSBC has failed to give evidence of any court order or police warrant to carry out this action and have refused to publicly respond to concerns raised by Hui and his family”, the letter stated.


    An HSBC spokeswoman said the bank was "unable to comment on individual cases, but the Hong Kong Police explained publicly in early December the reasons for instructing banks to freeze accounts related to Mr Hui and his family." HSBC had also added that it had no option not to comply with specific legal instruction by police authorities in Hong Kong to freeze the accounts of somebody under investigation.
