In Hong Kong, it is planned to ban the Telegram messaging service, which is widely used by pro-democracy activists. This was reported by the International Business Times: Local media reports say the Telegram ban is seen as a means of combating rampant docking, in which members of a democratic campaign expose confidential personal data of government officials and citizens online. The Hong Kong Data Protection Commissioner may decide to block or restrict access to the Telegram in the first such step, according to Sing Tao Daily, according to Bloomberg. Enforcing such a ban would mean that the former British colony has taken a step closer to China’s suppression of personal and civil liberties.
