United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he is “deeply troubled” by the Hong Kong arrest of pro-democracy media mogul Jimmy Lai, accusing Beijing of an assault on rights and freedoms in the territory.

The US State Secretary said the arrest of Lais a further proof that the Chinese Communist Party has eviscerated Hong Kong’s freedoms and eroded the rights of its people.

Lai, one of Hong Kong’s most vocal Beijing critics, was arrested early Monday for colluding with foreign forces, one of the offenses in the city’s controversial new national security law that critics say is a blatant crackdown on the territory.

Beijing hailed Lai’s arrest, declaring him an “anti-China rabble-rouser” who conspired with foreigners to “stir up chaos.”
