It's a new year but some things just never change. There's some murky stuff going on in Hong Kong in which a bookstore employee Lee Bo disappeared and ended up in China right before New Year's Day. According to phone calls and a faxed letter from him to his wife, he is helping in an investigation and is alright. Which doesn't sound suspicious right? There haven't been much updates on the case but there is a high likelihood that it has something to do with the fact the bookstore in question sells Chinese-language books that are very political and feature criticism and gossip about China. And that four of Lee's colleagues disappeared back in November, one from Thailand and the others in China or Hong Kong. It would be a very sad day for Hong Kong if it turned out that these disappearances were conducted by state agents in HK, despite clear laws that mainland police cannot operate in HK soil.
Whatever the reason, this disappearance cannot be left unsolved or ignored.
