Reports: Major Hong Kong Airline Terminated Chinese Pilots for Standing with Freedom Protesters!
Rumors are swirling that six pilots who work for the Hong Kong Airline Cathay Pacific were terminated for aligning themselves with the freedom protesters in Hong Kong who continue to stand up to the Chinese regime. This is against laws in Hong Kong that protect free speech.
Hong Kong has laws that protect the rights of an individual. These include freedom of speech and other laws –
Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of speech, of the press and of publication; freedom of association, of assembly, of procession and of demonstration; and the right and freedom to form and join trade unions, and to strike.
The freedom of the person of Hong Kong residents shall be inviolable. No Hong Kong resident shall be subjected to arbitrary or unlawful arrest, detention or imprisonment. Arbitrary or unlawful search of the body of any resident or deprivation or restriction of the freedom of the person shall be prohibited. Torture of any resident or arbitrary or unlawful deprivation of the life of any resident shall be prohibited.
The homes and other premises of Hong Kong residents shall be inviolable. Arbitrary or unlawful search of, or intrusion into, a resident’s home or other premises shall be prohibited.
The freedom and privacy of communication of Hong Kong residents shall be protected by law. No department or individual may, on any grounds, infringe upon the freedom and privacy of communication of residents except that the relevant authorities may inspect communication in accordance with legal procedures to meet the needs of public security or of investigation into criminal offences.
Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of movement within the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and freedom of emigration to other countries and regions. They shall have freedom to travel and to enter or leave the Region. Unless restrained by law, holders of valid travel documents shall be free to leave the Region without special authorization.
Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of conscience. Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of religious belief and freedom to preach and to conduct and participate in religious activities in public.
Hong Kong residents shall have freedom of choice of occupation.
It appears that Beijing is encouraging corporations in Hong Kong to not adhere to the laws of the Hong Kong region.
Rumors are swirling in Hong Kong that six pilots were terminated from Cathay Pacific Airlines after they either engaged in protests or supported the protesters in Hong Kong.
The pilots were not given the right to appeal. They are gone. It is unknown how many of Cathay’s other employees were removed from their positions as well.
This is clearly against the law in Hong Kong. It is against the law in many other countries as well. The protests in Hong Kong against the world’s largest and most brutal regime are another example in the world of the common man standing up against tyranny and losing their livelihoods in the process.
