Is China torturing Hong Kong citizens crossing the border? | DW News

Hong Kong’s police chief is urging protesters barricaded inside the Polytechnic University to surrender peacefully. They’ve been holed up there since occupying the campus. Mainland China has issued a series of increasingly tough warnings against the demonstrators. And although Beijing has not directly intervened in the territory, authorities have targeted individual protesters. British consulate employee Simon Cheng says he was held and tortured at the border, and he is not the only one. Correspondent Matthias Bölinger met with one man who says he was arrested and beaten by police at the Hong Kong-China border crossing. To protect his identity, DW has revoiced the protester’s remarks.
