Martin Lee turns Ming Pao column into protest space
(01-14 14:13)

A founding member of the Democratic Party, Martin Lee Chu-ming, has intentionally left blank a column in Ming Pao in protest against the newspaper's decision to appoint a new chief editor.
Seven barristers take turns to contribute to the column.
Speaking during a radio program, Lee said Ming Pao's move had let down many people in Hong Kong.
He said next time he wouldn't leave the column blank, but would criticize the newspaper until his article was withheld.
The newspaper has recently informed employees that the chief editor Kevin Lau Chun-to will be moved to a new unit. --RTHK
