Hong Kong Police Arrest Kim Jong Un Lookalike Who Supported Protests

Police in Hong Kong have arrested an impersonator of North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un for “possession of a firearm,” sparking concerns that he could have been targeted at the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s behest.

“I was arrested by the HK police at my home on Oct 28th 2020,” Howard X, who is well-known in Hong Kong for dressing up as the North Korean leader, wrote on his Facebook page on Jan. 19.

“They had a warrant to search my home because according to them, a BB gun had been posted to my address in April 2020 to which I never actually received,” he said. “Around 10 policemen came to raid the apartment.”

BB guns are legal in Hong Kong, but police had said this gun had a higher-than-normal energy output making it count as a firearm, wrote the impersonator, whose birth name is Lee Ho-hung.

“When I challenged them on the arrest on such ridiculous grounds, they had indicated that the order came from another department higher up and stated they were just doing their jobs,” he said, adding that some of the officers arresting him were fans of his act.

He said the officers had also mentioned his appearance in costume at public demonstrations in 2020 in support of the pro-democracy movement.

“[This] points to my suspicions that this arrest was not really about the BB gun,” Lee wrote, adding that he often uses replica firearms, bombs, and nuclear missiles as part of his act.

“In my opinion this was an arbitrary arrest for my satirical critique of the CCP government in the years past and this arrest is being used as a tool not only to harass but to also take my finger prints,” he said, adding that his cell phone had been confiscated and his home searched.

Lee is currently out on bail, and has to report to the police every six weeks, meaning that he could still face criminal charges.

‘A misunderstanding’

He made his most recent trip to the police station in full costume, toting a fake missile, on Jan. 20, in a bid to ridicule the whole process.

“I am here to make my report to the police,” Lee told RFA.

“Let’s see what they say. I brought my rocket launcher toy along specially to see if they would charge me for [possession of a firearm],” he quipped.

He said he had initially believed his arrest to be a “misunderstanding.”

“I just thought it was ridiculous,” he said. “Why send 10 people to arrest me over a toy gun? It was a waste of police time and of my time.”

Lee said that even if he had ordered a gun, it would have only been toy.

“I think maybe they arrested me because some people were dissatisfied with me having repeatedly satirized and criticized the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and [its leader] Xi Jinping,” he told RFA.

“I have turned up at demonstrations many times to mock people from all over the world, including Trump, Xi Jinping, and [Hong Kong chief executive] Carrie Lam.”

“Now they are settling accounts,” said Lee, who has previously gotten into trouble in authoritarian regimes like Singapore and Vietnam because of his costume.

“I was arrested in Singapore and deported from Vietnam, but I have never been persecuted like this in Hong Kong before,” he said. “This used to be a free city, but it’s gradually getting a lot more like Pyongyang.”

Lee, who holds an Australian passport, said he has yet to receive any consular assistance from that country, and doesn’t expect a fair trial in Hong Kong if charged.

Mekong Dams Bring Hardship to Thai Villagers

The Mekong is one of the world’s great rivers — a 5,000-kilometer waterway threading from China through Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.  However, dams have subverted the ecosystem, bringing drought during the monsoon season and high waters when it should be dry. That has forever changed the lives of those who depend on the river for food and work in northeastern Thailand, a poor region bordering Laos and Cambodia

How to identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines

www.who.int

When you follow COVID-19 related news and messages from social media then check and recheck it before consuming it.Follow journalism mantra: if your mother says she loves you, check it out.

Most of the messages or informations quote different organizations like WHO, UNICEF, UNDP,Cambridge University  or other well known institutes,organizations or individual to authenticate the messeges.Check official websites of these organizations  if stories are repeated there

Forwarding messages from unknown sources or little known sources, it would be better to ignore it.

Check whether any logo like UNICEF or WHO or other organizations used in the messages which look similar to original logo.

These type of messages are full of Grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes which are quite uncommon in original messages.

Some fake messages pretend to be real one like unofficial Twitter handle of international media organizations like BBC,CNN,Washinton Post, New York Times-check the official Twitter handles of media outlets.

You can identify fake messages if the message requests you to share it.

Beware of Fake News or Fake Photos/Videos Relating to Communal Hatred

Always check the fact checking sites if you have some doubts about the authenticity of any information or picture.

The Same Method Applies to You Tube Videos Check the Source the credibility of the Source.To Check Fake You Tube Videos Check and Recheck the sources. Does the person have the legal right to the video posted? Did that person capture the video? Whether it has been altered?

But due to advancement of technology we can not really wipe out fake news.According to experts advent of  Artificial Intelligence(AI) some companies small or big one developing  technologies that can  lay digitally created script to anybody's voice  even words,sentences never said by the person.Even they a.re developing a technology which can create fake video footage,images,audios like originals.So be cautious! Rumour-mongers are active everywhere whether in physical world or cyber world.

Without evidence or with fake evidence, a conspiracy theory will always remain a conspiracy theory.
