Martin Lee letter to the SCMP on May 17, 1994:

"Clearly, if many of our draconian colonial laws remain after 1997, they will be legitimately available to later government officials to gag Hong Kong reporters."
This reflects the defences in Crimes Ordinance s10(2): a publication is not seditious if it only intends "to point out errors or defects in the government or constitution of HK" or "to attempt to procure by lawful means the alteration of any matter in HK as by law established".

You can see it at end of any article. The disclaimer is also printed on the newspaper. This is added certainly due to closure of 3 news outlets in 6 months, including Citizen News whose editors said they can no longer see where is the 'red line' news.mingpao.com/pns/%E8%A7%80%… pic.twitter.com/sH24FQE9ke
There’s absolutely no attack on the free press in Hong Kong guys and it’s totes normal for papers to feel they have to attach disclaimers explaining what a column is m’kay?

Propekiński dziennik wydawany w Hongkongu artykuły zaeierajace krytykę wobec administracji i ich decyzji kończone są oświadczeniem, że mają one na celu naprawienie/wyeliminowanie błędów, a nie krytykę jako taką
Grzeczne dziennikarstwo, ciekawe na ile może uchronić przed aresztami

I wonder how long it will be until everyone starts adding this verbatim to Twitter bios. "Likes and retweets have no intention of incitement of hatred, discontent or hostility against HKSARG or other communities"
Someone has been reading the Crime Ordinance with an unusual attention.
This wording echoes the provision that protect freedom of the press (and that the government seems ignoring when recently suing into oblivion Stand News).

showing in real-time how in totalitarianism opinions and commentaries evolve into a repugnant foot binding cloth that expresses nothing of substance...

Everyone is now afraid of being the next victims after the death of the independent media. May be the one who is not patriotic enough will be aimed by tyranny.

戴頭盔喺割鞍髮面前應該係無用嘅 👷
加咗disclaimer就有用? 😂 人哋係法庭上親自解釋,嗰個所謂裁判官都可以唔接受啦….🤷‍♂️

The disclaimer will be as effective as using an umbrella to shield yourself against a tsunami #freedomofpressinhongkong
In reply to @krislc
and we all know that disclaimers does not make a difference. When #CCPChina don't like you, you are gone, it's that simple. No logic or rules behind any action. #HongKong #RuleByLaw #PoliceState #NSL
