  • 六四天安門事件即將滿33周年,但對香港而言,今年恐怕會是沒有六四紀念活動的第一年。往年主要舉辦紀念活動的單位香港支聯會,因為違反國安法被取締解散;泛民主派人士還在牢裡;就連往年會舉辦六四彌撒的的天主教正義和平委員會,日前因為樞機主教陳日君被捕,也宣布今年停辦。不過港版國安法引發的寒蟬效應,還不只這樣。
  • 六四燭光晚會參與者(2021/6/4):「平反六四,正義必勝。」過去,位在香港灣仔的維多利亞公園,是當地人悼念六四天安門事件的年度重要場地,但在港版國安法引發的寒蟬效應下,今年滿33週年的六四,首度沒有任何紀念活動。

  • 然而中共政府并不想倾听民意,中共喉舌也一再歪曲事实,挑拨是非,激化矛盾。最后中共动用坦克机枪血腥镇压了这场爱国民主运动,制造了一起骇人的大灾难。

「六四」33週年:香港封閉維園禁止悼念,全球多地點起紀念燭光 ~ 6 Jun 2022
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQye_uvlrLI
  • 「六四」天安門事件33週年,也是香港維多利亞公園燭光悼念晚會停辦的第三年。當日,公園大部分區域被政府關閉,警方在周邊部署大量警力攔查路人與車輛。為悼念「六四」死難者及聲援香港,台北、墨爾本、倫敦等全球多地舉辦了燭光紀念晚會。
  • 香港曾是為數不多可以公開悼念「六四」死難者的中國土地。1989年中國軍隊在天安門廣場血腥鎮壓和平示威的學生,當局一直試圖將此事件從集體記憶中抹去。2020年北京在香港實施「國安法」,異見人士不斷遭到打壓。2021年,六四燭光晚會的舉辦團體宣佈解散。

  • 香港還能否悼念六四,社民連前主席吳文遠也答不到,「呢個係政權話事,佢話得就得,唔得就唔得」。他指,現時在香港很難知道做甚麼事會犯法,但政權總是喜歡讓人猜度它的心意,「唔會講到明,你唔會有確實嘅答案,就算打電話問警察或者國安,佢都唔會答你」,觀乎現時的趨勢,似乎不容許吧。
  • 在現時一連串的打壓之下,「莫講話悼念,思想已經係一種罪,寫字已經係一種罪」,他更悲觀的說,在未來的香港,可能講真話也是種。

Sinovac’s 10 billion yuan plans include new facility, global HQ in Singapore: Lianhe Zaobao

By Tan Nai Lun
Wed, Jun 15, 2022 - 6:55 PM

Chinese vaccine maker Sinovac Biotech is investing 10 billion yuan (S$2 billion) in a development plan which includes opening a research facility and its international headquarters in Singapore, Lianhe Zaobao reported on Wednesday (Jun 15).

The research facility will develop vaccines for Covid-19 and severe hand, foot and mouth disease, and may be operational as early as within the next few months, said Helen Yang, Sinovac’s Hong Kong general manager and chief business officer.

She shared Sinovac’s plans in an interview with Zaobao last week, while in Singapore to discuss cooperation with local organisations. The 10 billion yuan figure includes opening a research facility in Singapore or collaborating with local research institutes to study new pathogens – though it is unclear exactly how much will be invested in Singapore itself.

The new facility will likely hire around 100 to 200 local and overseas scientists, with Sinovac hoping to work with local universities to cultivate talent, Yang said.

Yang noted that while many international pharmaceutical companies are opening in Singapore, Sinovac has an advantage when it comes to focusing on Asian diseases that may be overlooked by European or American companies.

Locating its research facility in Singapore allows Sinovac to leverage on the technology and talent pool in the Republic, as well as export products worldwide, she said.

Sinovac is also looking at the feasibility of setting up a factory here. It is studying the regulations and is in talks with authorities, with details to come.

Globally, Sinovac is investing 20 billion yuan to build production facilities in 10 countries, as its strategy shifts from producing Covid-19 vaccines for China, to building R&D and production capabilities in different regions in order to tackle other issues.

Sinovac also intends to open an office in Singapore early next year, to serve as its international headquarters outside of China. While Sinovac had registered an entity in Singapore in 2020, it has yet to set up an office due to the pandemic.

Yang – who has already found a location in the central business district – expects the headquarters to comprise a team of 10 to 20 people. The company hopes to hire regulatory specialists here, as well as form a global business team.

With several regional teams currently, Sinovac hopes the core team in Singapore can coordinate strategy and oversee operations in the rest of Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and other overseas markets.

On Sinovac’s Covid-19 vaccine, Yang acknowledged anecdotes of individuals developing leukaemia and diabetes after vaccination – but said that research has not revealed any such risks compared to the pre-pandemic incidence of these diseases, though the company is monitoring the situation.

As for doubts about the vaccine’s efficacy, Yang noted that the vaccine uses a relatively reliable and conventional technology, and it can be used in more remote places given its less strict storage conditions.

Yang added that Sinovac’s effectiveness in reducing the risk of severe illness or deaths is over 80 to 90 per cent, comparable to that of mRNA vaccines.

前日本黑幫幹部親見遭中共活摘器官法輪功學員 ~ 27 Jun 2022

  • 曾是日本黑社会的菅原潮,15年前,他意外地在中国知道了活摘人体器官的内幕。
  • 在那裡,一位負責接待的醫生告訴他說,供體就在隔壁,问他要不要看一看。他拉開布簾,看到供體躺在床上,是一位21歲的年輕男子。因為打了麻藥,他看上去沒有意識。
  • 2007年,菅原潮一名友人的哥哥肝病恶化,需要接受器官移植,朋友通过中介在中国找到了供体。手术前,朋友请菅原潮在日本采购白蛋白并将其送到北京。菅原潮因此意外发现中共活摘法轮功学员器官的黑幕。“中介说,没有官员的参与就没法做,没法调整复杂的关系,待遇不一样,从日本到中国后,是走专用通道。有官员专用的通道和地下隧道,都是畅通无阻的。” 菅原潮说,北京武警总医院接受日本、沙特和德国的有钱人做活体器官移植手术。

  • 香港懲教署近日披露,正在獄中推行「去激化」項目,為自反修例示威以來入獄的犯人去除極端思想。除此以外,港府如何應對大幅增加的「敏感」囚犯?
  • 根據港府提供予立法會的資料,截至今年一月底,共有10277人因反修例事件被捕。2810人被起訴,約三分二、即1858人已完成司法程序,當中1158人被法庭定罪。
  • 這批被定罪人士面臨的刑罰包括:入獄、緩刑、社會服務令、感化令等;迄今判刑最重的是一宗藏有TATP炸藥案的被告,監禁12年。

  • 在2019年11月9日添馬公園舉行的追思周梓樂同學的集會上,一名與殯儀業相關的劉先生對大紀元說,近期香港出現的浮屍都不是浮屍應有的狀態,沒有「屍僵」的特點,很「鮮活」。劉先生說,人溺死後會膨脹,絕不是最近浮屍那麼真確、細微,還有面部肌肉狀態。「人體展」的「人體」也是那麼「鮮活」,不是正常死亡後的人體。劉先生指,活摘器官背後有可怕的巨大市場。
  • 此前,中共對法輪功學員的活摘器官罪行已經被廣泛報導。調查活摘器官的人權律師、醫生和活動人士收集了多方證據。他們發現,根據統計,自從中共1999年開始公開鎮壓法輪功,中國器官移植數量迅速上升,而中國的自願器官捐贈系統直到2013年才建立。中共承認曾使用死刑犯器官進行器官移植,但稱已於2015年初停止。然而即便如此,死刑犯數量也未多到足以解釋器官移植數量,法輪功學員和其他良心犯成了中共的器官源。

Chinese homebuyers call 'mortgage strike' over unfinished projects

Debt-saddled developers left scores of presold housing complexes incomplete

By Cissy Zhou, Nikkei staff writer; additional reporting by Kenji Kawase
July 14, 2022 19:38 JST Updated on July 14, 2022 20:24 JST

HONG KONG -- Tens of thousands of Chinese homebuyers are threatening to stop paying mortgages on scores of unfinished housing projects, raising "huge risks" for banks and the country's debt-saddled property developers.

China's real estate sector is grappling with a crisis that has seen developers squeezed by eye-watering levels of debt, sparking a string of bond defaults among major groups including Shimao and China Evergrande -- the world's most indebted developer with about $300 billion in liabilities.

Now, buyers in more than 100 unfinished housing complexes across the country have taken to social media to warn that they will stop making monthly mortgage payments until developers complete the projects.

Despite the risks of being sued or punished under a government system called social credit, which can bring travel bans and other restrictions for people deemed "untrustworthy," the movement among furious homebuyers is growing quickly.

"When our survival is in question, when we are in a dire situation, social credit is just a paper tiger to us," said a statement this week issued by buyers of units in the Yufa Bailuyuan housing development in central Zhengzhou city. "We need to throw off those shackles and let the people who robbed us know that we are not lambs to be slaughtered."

Up to 1.5 trillion yuan ($220 billion) of mortgage loans are linked to unfinished residential projects, ANZ said in a report.

The movement kicked off in late June among people who bought into an Evergrande project in southeastern Jingdezhen city. It has since spread to other parts of the country with about one-third of the unfinished projects built by struggling Evergrande, once China's top developer.

"If tens of thousands of homebuyers really stop paying their mortgage, the real estate companies will soon collapse because they have no liquidity," Dan Wang, chief economist at Hang Seng Bank China, told Nikkei Asia. "There are huge risks for banks, particularly local banks, whose assets are mainly in the housing market, and there is no way that the central bank could save all of them," she added.

Chinese banking and real-estate shares took a hit Thursday (Jul 14) as investors reacted to the brewing crisis.

Unlike in some countries, it is common for buyers in China to pay 100% of the price of a presold home.

Nomura estimates that developers have only delivered around 60% of homes they presold between 2013 and 2020, while in those years China's outstanding mortgage loans rose by 26.3 trillion yuan.

Between the end of 2020 and March of this year, 4.4 trillion yuan in new mortgages were issued in the world's second largest economy, which has been struggling under China's strict zero-COVID policy, which led to lockdowns in major cities and shuttered factories.

"The presale model has significantly increased developers' leverage, so a disorderly deleveraging may not only lead to a credit crunch for developers and massive defaults in offshore dollar bond markets, but also rising nonperforming loans for banks, which sit at the center of China's financial system," Ting Lu, chief China economist at Nomura, said in a research note.

"As an increasing number of developers have failed to build and deliver presold homes in a timely manner, the presales model is likely to result in a vicious cycle, while the increasingly infectious subvariants of omicron may exacerbate the downward spiral," he added.

Caroline Wang, a 31-year old finance worker in Zhengzhou, and her husband made a 500,000 yuan payment for an apartment in October. They had expected to move in by the end of this year.

But two months after the couple put all of their money -- plus their parents' life savings -- into a dream home, construction was suspended after the project's developer allegedly misappropriated bank funds.

The couple is still on the hook for a 6,000 yuan monthly mortgage payment, a big chunk of their combined income of under 20,000 yuan. The couple is now renting an apartment.

"I am so stressed now and I don't even dare to tell my parents and my in-laws, because they are all farmers and it took them decades to save the down payment for us," Wang said.

Buyers in the high-profile Xitang housing project had not reached an agreement on joining the mortgage strike over fears they could wind up getting sanctioned by the government or sued for nonpayment, Wang said.

On Thursday (Jul 14), China's four biggest banks -- Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of China and China Construction Bank - all described their exposure to the mortgage-payment threat as "manageable."

China Minsheng Bank, which focuses on loans to small and medium-sized enterprises, said it would "closely monitor the situation and respond quickly."

"The movement might prompt the regulatory authority to take measures to let some projects resume, like allowing state-owned enterprises to acquire these projects," Shuang Ding, chief Greater China economist at Standard Chartered Bank, told Nikkei. "In China, any risk to financial stability will increase the sense of urgency to solve the problem."

  • Today, Indonesia exported 50 tonnes of frozen chicken to Singapore (Jul 13). This is the first consignment of goods to Singapore by Indonesian businesses under a new agreement. A Singapore importer has contracted with Charoen Pokphand Indonesia (CPI). They’re a division of the Thai food behemoth Charoen Pokphand, to receive 1,000 tonnes of chicken meat over the course of the year. Our chicken shortage could well be resolved with Indonesia’s Chicken Export.
  • Syahrul Yasin Limpo, the minister of agriculture for Indonesia, who was in attendance at the ceremony. He said “Singapore holds its food imports to a high standard. I’m hoping that this shipment will increase foreign consumers’ trust in Indonesian food exports.” Reporters were also informed by the minister that President Joko Widodo gave domestic needs and food security in Indonesia first priority.
