Sacked radio host Li blames suppression of freedom
(02-13 15:29)

Sacked radio program host Li Wei-ling said today her firing reflected the fact that Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying is suppressing the freedom of speech.
Li, who was dismissed after nine-and-a half years at Commercial Radio was a known government critic.
She wondered why the broadcaster unreasonably sacked her, saying she did not commit any mistakes.
She told reporters at a press conference that she believes the broadcaster made compromises in exchange for license renewal.
