Biography of Simon Bako Lalong

He had apparently planned to return to Hong Kong via a high-speed railway line from Shenzen.

When he did not return to work, the British consulate spoke to his family and police were contacted.

According to Hong Kong news website HK01, Mr Cheng had told his girlfriend to ‘pray for me’ as he said he was on his way back.

Mr Cheng’s girlfriend, who is said to be from Taiwan, told Hong Kong media that Mr Cheng was likely to have been detained on the territory of Hong Kong after he had got to the West Kowloon railway station.

‘Save Simon now!’ the crowd chanted in front of a wall of missing person posters with pictures of the worker.

Amnesty International yesterday demanded the Chinese authorities release Mr Cheng ‘immediately’ and ‘unconditionally’.

Joshua Rosenzweig, Amnesty International’s Head of East Asia, said Mr Cheng’s case was ‘grossly unjust’ and it was the latest example of China using administrative detention as a form of political punishment.
